It’s the most important meal of the day so don’t outsource it to the McDunkin’bucks corporate goliaths who just want to fill you up with cheap carbs and high fructose corn syrup. Sure, a Cinnabon smells good when you’re walking by the store – but eat one first thing in the morning and you’ll feel like you’ve got a lump of lead sitting in your stomach till lunch. Far better to spend a little of your own time whipping up a batch of delicious and natural breakfast treats that will get you through the week. Imagine cinnamon buns with REAL sugar icing on top or scones made with YOUR choice of dried fruit (organic and/or locally sourced, if you like). In our “Sweet Breakfast Treats” class, chef Shawona Jones will teach you the secrets to a whole host of morning delights made with the best quality, fair trade, organic ingredients. You’ll sip Stumptown coffee and learn how simple it can be to make all the basics, from danish to crumb cake. Pretty soon you’ll be wondering why you ever paid for store-bought breakfast pastries; if you’ve also got good coffee and Internet access at home you may never need to go into a coffee shop again.
