Sunday April 28th: Maximum Maple Overload
Vermont maple syrup is something that runs deep through my veins and I’m jonesing for my maple fix (insert facial tick here.) Hopefully you’ll have the sense to spread it out a little instead of eating it all at once. Although I think you should eat it all at once; no judgement. You don’t have to be a Slow Food Member to attend. Bring a partner, a friend or come solo and learn something new about how to tame the maple beast within.
This class takes place in my (Jessica Bongard’s) home kitchen located in Jericho, VT. I’ll be leading you in a class which includes several ways I like to eat maple syrup. I’m no slouch mind you, so to keep the pace, we will have pickles available to help you handle the maple overload. (Real Vermonters don’t need pickles.) And real Slow Food VT members don’t need to pay full price for the class! Members get a $5 cash in-hand discount upon arrival.
Sugar on Snow – You must start at the beginning. No worries, I’ve ordered snow.
The Phoenix – A maple cocktail that couldn’t scream spring any louder.
Maple Roasted Nuts - You’ll need something to soak up all that sugar, with some sugar on the side.
Maple Baked Cheese – A triple cream baked and drizzled with maple syrup. Put that on a cracker!
Mini Maple Tarts – The maple cream works three ways, I’ve got you covered.

What you’ll get:
You’ll go home with recipe packets including photos of each dish taken by yours truly.
Maple syrup has always been a part of my life and I will never forget the first time my parents gave me sugar on snow. I loved it so much, I became very demanding for it when the snow fell; which meant all winter. To this day I am shocked when I find someone who has never had it and feel responsible to introduce them to it. Stuff your face full of maple goodness and celebrate Vermont.
