The Summer Tomato Invasion Is Upon Us!
What To Do… and How To Use 'Em
Chef Katie Newell
Vine-ripened tomatoes are ‘da bomb” but this time of year, they tend to multiply like the loaves and fishes right? I’ve even heard of folks placing bags of tomatoes on neighbor's doorsteps, ringing the doorbell running…. all in the interest of ensuring that all the gardening doesn’t go to waste. Come and learn some awesome ways to preserve this goodness. A wondrous Quick Tomato Sauce for your freezer, as well as a freezable Tomato [Cognac?] Soup that will play appropriate homage to the summer onslaught.
Our cooking education class concept, the Flash Demo™, is the perfect quick & easy way for busy foodies & weekend kitchen warriors to learn how to cook. What a great way to spend a morning with plenty of time left to enjoy the day! Flash Demos™ are offered on Saturday mornings (11-12) and Wednesday mornings (10-11).
Register in advance online ($25) or walk-in the morning of class to these power-packed 1-hour cooking classes taught by experienced cooking instructors (a/k/a “Flash Demo Food Professors”). Each class will focus on one technique, dish or ingredient, front to back, and will include tastings and recipes for the featured dish/technique. Come early and enjoy some Foodie Talk!
