Berry Shrubs with Jennifer Colliau of Small Hand Foods & Aaron Gregory Smith of 15 Romolo
Don't know what shrubs are yet? Visit the Ark, Oh Parched One... and read up about this almost lost (and recently revived) art. Then get ready to learn from bartender extraordinaires, Jennifer Colliau and Aaron Gregory Smith, who will share their recipes for vinegar-based shrubs using delicious seasonal berries during this hands-on class.
The class will learn all about shrubs, with a focus on pre-prohibition style traditional shrubs. Participants will taste already made shrubs, make 2 shrubs of their very own, and learn about how to use them in cocktails. They'll each take home 2 quart jars of their own shrub made with fresh seasonal fruit (apricots, strawberries, blueberries, raspberries) and herbs from the Ferry Plaza Farmers Market, as well as a take-home booklet with recipes and tips.
(and yes, non-alcoholic options - and samples - of both will be available.)
