SWEET & SAVORY SERIES: Focaccia
September 5, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Join us in the kitchen with our Pastry Chef, Sue, to learn all about no-knead focaccia bread. This Italian favorite is surprisingly simple, yet makes a rich, flavorful, soft bread with crispy edges. Come prepared to put on an apron, get your hands in the dough, and participate in making a rosemary herb focaccia and a tomato basil focaccia.
