Come and enjoy a Saturday of demonstrations and food discovery while area chefs and specialty food businesses strut their stuff. Each hour highlights four workshops in the kitchen and classrooms—you select 4 of the 16 options. Discover Beijing Crepes with Pete Peterson (Tapawingo Restaurant); experience Gnocchi with author and chef Nancy Krcek Allen; gain confidence cooking local without a recipe with Chefs Eric Patterson and Jennifer Blakeslee (The Cook’s House); or make homemade pasta and sauce with Mickey Cannon (Tuscan Bistro). Become familiar with lavender and its uses in the kitchen with Sonja Richardson (Harbor View Lavender Farm); sample sweets, treats, and spices demonstrated by Andi Pellicci (As You Dish); and experience amazing vinegars and oils with Chef Andy (Fustini’s). Add knife skills, bread making, and much more, for a delicious day. Of course, there will be tastings throughout! Register now to receive a flyer with complete workshop choices 3 weeks before the event. Details will also be available then at www.nmc.edu/festival-of-foods. Be early with your workshop selections so you get your first choices at this sellout event.
