Trade Route Talks: Salt of the Earth

Trade Route Talks: Salt of the Earth

Tuesday 10/15 at 7:00pm 

The Gourmandise School of Sweets and Savories

Join me for a series of monthly discussions about agriculture, trade and how our taste for foods have changed the landscape of our world. Students are greeted with a topical appetizer and, after the conversation, participate in the hands-on cooking of a dish which uses the theme of the day as the main attraction.

Before it became a staple in every kitchen pantry, salt was extremely valuable and economies were based on its production and trade. Let’s crisscross the globe with one of the world’s principal trading commodities. ($45)
