Italian Sauces, Indian Chickpeas, & More with Home Spice Mixes

Herbs and Spices

July 20 @ 6:30 pm - 7:15 pm

$15 – $25

Italian Sauces, Indian Chickpeas, & More with Home Spice Mixes: Many of us in the upper Midwest have Northern and Western European roots – and let’s face it, our forbearers weren’t exactly known for their flair with the spices and herbs! But skills with spices and herbs is what can turn your average dish into a delectable one (maybe even transform the humble hotdish!). Spices and herbs kick-up everyday dishes and bring international flavors to your table. We’ll cover how to buy, store, and cook spices, plus talk about why your spices may not be working!

Please note: If you find that price is a barrier to attending one of our classes or events, please reach out to programdirector@farmtablefoundation.org.
