Event Overview

Pick a bouquet of basil. It is the summer season’s most versatile herb. Basil is guaranteed to liven up any dish in your culinary repertoire. This common leaf can be found in almost any grocery store, in a whole host of varieties. Think Thai to Italian, lemon, and even cinnamon; in colors from green, red to purple. Basil can punch up salads, soups, sauces and meats. Be bold with your basil! Give those fun robust flavors and appealing pungent fragrances a try. Move beyond the common sweet variety so often sold to the masses explore the whole range of basil.

This hands on cooking class will move you past the basic tomato-based sweet basil dish. We’ll take a culinary trip around the world featuring unique basil varieties to enhance an appetizer, main dish, desserts and a beverage. Be prepared to try these recipes and more:
Purple Basil lemonade
Basil oil and pesto
Peanut noodles with Thai basil
Cinnamon Basil & Lime Icebox Cookies
