A Cooking Date with Dates | Shayna Teicher
6:30 PM – 8:30 PM March 22, 2016 | Sarasota Garden Club
Dates happen to be a tropical fruit that does not grow well in Florida, in part because they require at least 100 days of 100+ degree heat. But that doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy them!
Shayna Teicher, active club officer and board member, will be speaking this month about cooking with dates. Shayna is a gourmet home cook and also happens to be rather fond of dates. She will share with us some of her favorite recipes and ways to use dates that are both sweet and savory, as well as some history and nutritional information to help you incorporate dates into your kitchen in a healthy way.
She will also have some of her tasty treats available for our tasting enjoyment. Shayna buys her dates direct from California in bulk, so she will also provide us with her favorite vendor and how she stores dates. If you like to eat, you’ll like this meeting a lot. See ya’ there!
We welcome non-members to attend any of our meetings; your first meeting is free and after that you’re welcome to join or just pay the $5 meeting guest fee. We hope to see you there!
