What you'll learn in this culinary (meals) class:

Keep the party going from a mid-week 4th of July holiday – no need to vacuum or have those throw pillows perfectly positioned. This is a no-fuss get together designed to be easy, breezy, and tasty. Think hand held for summer party fare; one hand for nibbles and bites, one for frosty cocktails. String some lights, strike up the tiki torches, and choose your favorite playlist; it’s porch party time.

On the menu:
  • Summer Toasts with Avocado, Burrata and Chimichurri
  • Crusted Green Tomatoes with Herb Mayonnaise and Micro Greens
  • Tomato and Ricotta Pesto Burgers with Arugula, Grilled Onions, Green Bean, Roasted Pepper
