Event description

Description

(This event is part of a day of festivities locally, including Margaret Roach’s open garden in Copake Falls, cooking and flower-growing and arranging classes in Hillsdale, and a giant plant sale by Broken Arrow Nursery. Learn more.)

In this workshop, 12 lucky guests learn how to incorporate the bounty of the seasons into home baking with James Beard award-winning author, professional baker, and horticulturist Sarah Owens. Students will learn what edible flowers (both foraged and cultivated) are in season and how to both decorate and preserve them for use on cakes and tarts. Sarah will demonstrate how to make and decorate a delightful and delicious rhubarb tart which will be enjoyed during the class. This beautiful tart will be made from local whole grains and wholesome ingredients.

Please join Sarah Owens in our Hudson Valley-Berkshires kitchen for this inspiring class that links baking and horticulture in the most beautiful way!

This workshop is limited to 12 people.
