This is a live, interactive, hands-on cooking class held online via Zoom. See our event policies at the bottom of this webpage.

The beginning of March is technically still winter, but spring is on the horizon! The temperatures warm ever so slightly and every day has a few extra minutes of light. Daylight Savings is, mercifully, just around the corner. 

We find ourselves longing for the crisp energy of spring. Enter the salad: snappy textures, vibrant colors and flavorful seasonings. Salads have it all. Using a combination of both fresh and cooked ingredients we will bridge the heavy richness of winter and the light, freshness of spring.
