Unsung: Fall Fruit
{A cooking demonstration and discussion; a llight meal will be served.}
Tuesday, November 18, 6:30-8:30PM
$25 for members, $35 for the general public

Many cultures consider the persimmon a divine fruit.  It is prized for its sweet, earthy, floral taste, versatility, healing properties and striking beauty.  And yet we get a lot of questions about the persimmon.  Fuyu vs. Hachiya?  To peel or not to peel?  Raw or cooked?  Sweet or savory?

Join our Program Director Michelle McKenzie for this informative and inspiring demonstration, using what may be fall's most undervalued and misunderstood fruit.
