Reinventing Rhubarb: Savory and Sweet
No one is on the fence about rhubarb. But rhubarb lovers don’t mind the haters because that means more rhubarb for us! Still, even devotees can fall into a familiar pattern of pies, sauce and crisps. This class takes rhubarb in new directions—as pickles, as a luscious curd, in salads, tonics, chutneys and more. Join Kim Ode, author of "Rhubarb Renaissance," in exploring the savory side of this vegetable (yup, it is!), as well as learning some new twists on dessert. We’ll also talk about growing conditions for rhubarb. This will be a hands-on class with some demonstrations. Please bring aprons and containers in which to transport what you make. We’ll wrap up the day with a "cocktail hour” featuring a festive rhubarb beverage, appetizer and sweet.
