with Laura Cochran and PattyJo Hinkel of Sweet Freedom Cheese

In this hands-on culinary adventure, participants will dive into the art of crafting two delectable tarts, both featuring the star ingredient: cheese! The class starts with an appetizer of Polenta and Greek Feta piled with Summer Succotash. Then learn the secrets behind creating perfect pastry dough and explore techniques for two distinct tart styles: A Savory Quiche filled with speck, seasonal veggies, and creamy Australian feta and a Decadent Dessert Tart for the sweet finale. This tart is filled with luscious whipped feta and a medley of fresh berries. A symphony of textures and flavors awaits! Recipes will be provided. Tickets are priced per person. 

*All class ticket sales are final. No refunds or credit transfers to other classes are available.*
