Akron Cooking Classes: Think Spring Edition


I don't know about you, but I am most definitely ready for spring!  If you've suffered from a little too much cabin fever due to the snowy winter, join me in the kitchen for some fun classes to gear up for the new season.  I've even reserved two dates specifically for custom classes - you pick the topic and bring your friends.

Become a Locavore: Your guide to shopping & cooking with farmer's market, CSA Shares (community supported agriculture), and your own garden. 

Spring is almost here! Join me for this fun and informative class.  I'll give you the secrets of shopping for local foods, and cooking seasonally.
It doesn't get more local than your own backyard, so we'll also cover how you can start your own edible landscape.

We'll prepare an Herbal Salad, Pasta Primavera, and Chocolate Lavender Brownies.
