Barbecue, Cold Salads, Chilled Soups: Herbs and Spices to Up Your Summer Cooking!

Herbs and Spices

July 20, 2021 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm


Barbecue, Cold Salads, Chilled Soups: Herbs and Spices to Up Your Summer Cooking! When I cook in summer, I think of things that are nice and easy, or that can be done out on the grill. We’ll learn to make spice mixes that’ll bring the flavors of Mexico, Israel, the Middle East, and Asia to your barbecues, cold salads, coleslaw, chilled soup, and grain bowls. Our goals are meals with great taste, and minimal time at a hot stove. Kick up the flavor, not the kitchen heat!

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.
