“I’m so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers,” L.M. Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables.
What a fantastic quote- and so true… The sweet smells of cinnamon applesauce, spiced pumpkin everything and savory, rich, harvest soups. October is the perfect month to get into the kitchen and enjoy the season’s bounty. To celebrate fall’s favorite foods, we have added even more classes with special Halloween treats. We also have two guest chefs teaching this month- explore sushi and holiday meals with Chefs Amiga and John. There is definitely a class for all this month at Edible Education.
