Cooking with herbs elevates your food to the next level with their fresh, bright
flavors! Join Le Chat Gourmet for this workshop that will walk you through the
herb garden…literally! We begin class outside in Le Chat’s culinary gardens
for herb identification and tasting. We’ll also discuss pairing herbs with food,
plus growing, storing and cooking. Back in the kitchen we’ll create a delicious
menu featuring fresh thyme, rosemary, tarragon, basil, chives, parsley,
mint, oregano, loveage, edible flowers, fennel and more.

There is no better classroom for a cook than the garden,
no matter how modest.
