  • Design Your Own Dish — A Two-Part Creative Workshop

    Unleash your creativity in a class all about designing your own unique recipe. Participants will be provided with various seasonal ingredients and will learn the basics of flavor combinations. Start with a small idea or single ingredient and develop it into a full-blown dish! On day one, we will learn about the process of creating a dish, then test out various exciting ingredients and cooking techniques. On day two, participants will finalize a recipe from their selected ingredients and prepare it! All ingredients are locally sourced by the 21 Acres Center.
