Saturday Jul 25, 2020
3:00 PM - 4:30 PM

 Traci Dutton

In this class for adults and children we will learn together about all the human tastes and taste them too! We'll talk about what a flavor is and how to learn to identify aromas - even stinky ones! Then we'll figure out how to put things together so they taste good to you because - don't tell the chef - not everyone likes the exact same thing. Before you join us for this one-of-a-kind live, streaming class, secret instructions about how to prepare will be sent to you. We'll be using very simple things to taste and if you don't have them in your house, they will be easy to find and inexpensive. How fun will it be to learn how to say, nicely, things like, "I believe this lemonade is a little too sour for my taste." Or "Do you think this broccoli could use more salt?" These are the types of lessons we learn about ourselves that will last a lifetime, and a more delicious one at that! Materials and a simple prep list will be emailed in advance. Student will supply their own ingredients and have it ready to go before the class begins. Children under 10 may be too young for this class. All children under 16 should be accompanied by an adult. Please email us at uvc_sthelena@napavalley.edu with your name, email address, and the name of the class you have registered for.
