Celebrating Spring Foods workshop


Embracing Herbs

  • Tuesday, June 6, 2023, 5:30 PM - 7:30 PM

Similar to your charming friend who walks into a party and distributes warm hugs, culinary herbs love to embrace other foods and can do so very simply. In the company of pesto, plain pasta is transformed into a full, flavorful dish! Miso soup is not complete without the hint of scallions. During this class, we will explore how herbs boost the flavor of dishes including pasta, soups and sauces. Join us for a delicious evening of learning how to incorporate simple herbs into meals.

A previous Harvest Kitchen participant said, “DELICIOUS! I appreciate that we got to experience the product as well as the process.”

This workshop is part of the Celebrating Spring Foods series which consists of 3 cooking classes from May through June 2023. The Celebrating Spring Foods workshop series is dedicated to sharing timely information in a hands-on, accessible format, including support materials for participants to use at home.

Participants can register for as many workshops as they like in the series, each of which requires a separate registration. Class size is capped at 12 to allow for hands-on opportunities. Payment must be received before the start of each workshop.
