Event description

Description

Fresh herbs are the enhancers, and sometimes the foundation, of countless flavor-packed recipes. But how does one use them to best effect and what do they actually bring to the table? Alexandra Stafford – cookbook author, popular blogger at Alexandra’s Kitchen and HGS Home Chef instructor – will answer these questions while creating dishes that beautifully illustrate the impact of fresh garden herbs.

This event is part of a full day of collaborative festivities including classes on cooking with herbs next door at Tiny Hearts flower farm's new workshop, and the Open Day garden tours and rare plant sale at the garden of Margaret Roach in nearby Copake Falls, NY. All of the day's details.

With spring here and summer just around the corner it’s time to think about planting herbs and using them in your warm-weather dishes. In this class Alexandra will demonstrate the joy of herbs and how they can be used for maximum effect in dishes you will love to create in your own kitchen.

Menu will include:

  • Tabbouleh salad
  • Cucumber and Green Grape Gazpacho
  • Green Goddess Dressing
  • Cilantro-lime Chickpeas
  • Rosemary Shortbread

This demonstration class limited to 12 people.

About Alexandra Stafford:

Ali Stafford, author of the hit food blog “Alexandra’s Kitchen” (www.alexandracooks.com), grew up eating her mother’s peasant bread at nearly every meal—the recipe for which was a closely guarded family secret. When her website began to grow in popularity, readers began asking how to make the bread they’d heard so much about. Alexandra’s mother acquiesced, and the recipe got shared, and has since inspired many who had deemed bread-baking an impossibility to give it a try, and their results have exceeded expectations. It all led to Ali's recent cookbook, "Bread Toast Crumb," praised by the world's top-selling baking-book authors including Dorie Greenspan and David Lebovitz. Ali is also a columnist for Food52.com.
