Virtual Workshop: DIY Edible Gifts
Join Backyard Growers on Zoom for a hands-on demo of a seasonal simple syrup and festive snacks that are perfect for last-minute foodie holiday gifts, or just a tasty treat for you!
Tickets: $15 general admission / $7.50 for 2020-19 participants in Backyard Growers' backyard and community garden programs
At this interactive virtual workshop, attendees will learn how to whip up:
? a cranberry-spiced syrup for use in a festive margarita, seasonal cider, or a holiday limeade,
?? cinnamon citrus sugar salt for a margarita or mocktail glass rim, or a topping for popcorn,
? delicious savory homemade cheese crackers
Ticket purchasers will receive ingredient lists, recipes, and gift-wrap recommendations ahead of time in case they want to prepare gifts and cook together during the workshop - or, just join us to be merry and enjoy a fun evening together, with the chance to ask questions.
Proceeds support Backyard Growers' work connecting kids, seniors, and families to the resources they need to grow their own food at schools, in backyards, and at community gardens.
The workshop will be led by Cecily McAndrews, editor and food writer with experience writing for outlets including Food Network Magazine, Rachael Ray In Season, and Pioneer Woman Magazine. She has degrees from the Institute for Culinary Education and Mount Holyoke College. Currently, she edits cookbooks at Callisto Media, bakes whenever she can, and contemplates what to make for dinner.
