A hands-on class culminating in a family-style dinner with wine and beer.
It’s March Madness! While everyone starts seeing green this month, matcha green tea is an ingredient to add to your spice cabinet and not just your tea cup. Join Annelies, our resident tea expert and author of Steeped: Recipes Infused with Tea for a class with matcha ado. Most of the time, matcha swings sweet, so you’ll make two kinds of easy desserts alongside two savory preparations that may surprise your next dinner date.
