Warmth and Comfort: Cooking with Pleasure through the Depths of Winter

When: 
December 14, 2019 2:00 pm to 5:00 pm
Where: 

Berkshire Botanical Garden

Winter can be the best time to cook. As the snow falls and the temperatures dip, we can turn on the stove, pour a glass of wine, and bring our friends and family together around the warmth of the table. Join cookbook author Alana Chernila for a hands-on class where the comfort foods of winter play a starring role. Recipes will include polenta with all the greens, shredded brussels with crispy shallots and pecans, and pear gingerbread with whipped cream.

Alana Chernila is the author of three books: The Homemade Pantry, The Homemade Kitchen, and Eating From the Ground Up: Recipes for Simple, Perfect Vegetables. She also writes, cooks, teaches cooking and cheese making, and blogs at EatingFromTheGroundUp.com. Alana is the Marketing and Special Events Manager for Guido's Fresh Marketplace in Great Barrington and Pittsfield.

Cooking classes are sponsored by Guido's Fresh Marketplace.
