Farmers’ Market Tour & Cooking Class

Spring Holiday Feast – April 17 2011 9:30-12:30

Looking to spring holidays of Easter and Passover,
Chef Kathryn Yeomans will demonstrate
just how easy it is to roast a leg of lamb
for your festive dinner.

We’ll cover
  • how to roast a bone-in leg roast
  • how to stuff and tie a boneless lamb leg roast
  • roasting lamb shoulder
  • complementary savory sauces & condiments
  • and seasonal market vegetable side dishes to complete the feast

The day will begin with a chef-led market tour.

Farmers, ranchers, and producers will chat with us about the ingredients we select, sharing with us their farming practices, and giving us a glimpse of what they do to bring such amazing products to market.

Then we’ll take our market basket to the Sweetwares kitchen to prepare the feast!
Tasting to follow the demonstration, with suggested wine pairings and a dessert recipe.
