Sunday August 25th: Heirloom Tomatoes, Seriously
We have an insane variety of heirloom tomatoes growning in our fair state of Vermont. And I think it is paramount that we eat them in as many ways as we can possibly imagine. The way I like to eat and drink my tomatoes might be quite different than yours…You don’t have to be a Slow Food member to attend. Bring a partner, a friend, or come solo and find a new reason to loom at those beauties.
This class takes place in my (Jessica Bongard’s) home kitchen located in Jericho, VT. We rock the tomato season hard at Sweet Lime, seriously. Come find out how great it feels to be eyeball deep in dozens of varieties, and knowing exactly what to do with them. Slow Food VT members get a $5 cash in-hand discount upon arrival.
