Update: April 10. At least three events will be available online. As before, all in-person sessions after March 7th have been delayed or canceled. Please stay at home and be safe.
I am excited to be teaching classes again here in the Triangle. I hope you’ll be able to come to one or more of these events. Not all of them are open to the public, but I include the full list to show you the range. Soon I’ll show you how you can do cooking demonstrations and talks like this yourself!
