A Plethora of Pestos Workshop & Garden Tour

I'll be visiting Minnesota and teaching a Plethora of Pestos Workshop & Garden Tour at Ripple River Gallery in the Bay Lake Area.

We'll start the afternoon in Ripple River's stunning garden where we'll talk about growing culinary herbs and get an up-close, hands-on look at our featured ingredient. Then we'll move to the porch for a pesto making demonstration and a discussion of the history of pesto, tips for storing fresh herbs, and an exploration of how to vary your ingredients and create new recipes. And finally we'll wake up our taste buds as we sample and taste 6-8 different pestos - each an original recipe. Participants will receive a packet of information that includes recipes for all the pesto we'll have tasted (plus a few extras), and tips for growing culinary herbs.

This workshop has been designed in the spirit of "handcrafting real good food" and will be a celebration of growing, crafting, and creativity.

When: Saturday July 18th from 11 AM to 2 PM. You can contact Ripple River Gallery for registration either by email at or by phone 218.678.2575. For more info. and great photos of Ripple River Gallery visit their Website or their Facebook page.

I hope to see you there.
