We’ll be fashioning a veritable candy wonderland for the whole family that satisfies each and every sweet tooth using completely natural, seasonal and local ingredients! Candy has received a bad rep in the last few decades since the industrialization of food, but not all candy and sweets are created equally! This class aims to bring you and the whole family, to show you and your little ones positive, healthy ways to indulge your sweet tooth with natural sugars and sweets that will thoroughly tantalize your tastebuds! In this class, we’ll teach the whole family to tap into your inner Willy Wonkas using local, seasonal and organic fresh herbs, spices, and fruits that will leave an utterly satisfied smile on your face- without the added factor of guilt. Whisk through this summer Saturday indoors bonding with your family over some delicious treats with loved ones big and small. Your kids will think you’re cool and thank you for letting them satisfying their gnawing desire for sweets, and you’ll feel better knowing it’s a Jersey Peach that makes that lollipop so delicious!
