Cooking Class

More Than Salad
Nov 10, 6-8:30pm

Salads can range from simple to so much more. They’re a quick make-ahead work lunch. A great dish to pass. And with the addition of a protein, a wholesome one-dish meal.

Salads often get a bad rep, but take it from Chef Patrick, this is the salad class for non-salad people. If you’ve only thought of salad as a vehicle for dressing until now, let us convert you. Salad’s already your thing? Take it up a notch.

Kick off at 6:00 with a quick mixer, then get hands on in the Coltivare culinary lab in a fun and interactive class complete with tastings, takeaways and a small drink pairing.
