The flavor profiles Chef Chris will be offering are something you will not want to miss!

    And the TEQUILA! 🙂 We will have a speaker from Herradura tequila, providing a full-blown sampling and history of tequila, the Brand, etc. Chef Chris will work together with our speaker, to help tie together how our food offerings were planned, and how various items on the menu pair together with the tequilas you will be tasting.

    Come see what everyone is talking about at Metzy's Cantina (located at the NBPT Train Station in the newly formed Rails End District just across from popular Riverwalk Brewery)! You will not want to miss this event! Seating is limited, so buy your tickets today so you don't miss out.

    Doors open at 6:15pm, class begins promptly at 6:30pm and runs until approximately 8:30pm. Port Plums 50 Water Street Suites 402 & 403, Newburyport, MA. (P) 978-462-7700
    Class Description:

     

    If all home cooks take just one step to transform their cooking, it should be learning how to use spices. At Milk Street, we can’t cook without them anymore. Mashed potatoes are lackluster if we don’t finish them with caraway seeds bloomed in brown butter. Chicken soup falls flat without the Somali spice blend berbere stirred into the broth. Cake is a one-note confection if we don’t soak it in a bay infused syrup or stir ample spicy-sweet dried ginger into the batter. When you start cooking with spices, it’s like painting in full color after a lifetime of black, white and gray. 

    In this class you will learn why, how and when to toast and bloom spices; why we grind spices in some recipes and leave them whole in others; how to use savory spices to make better desserts; Milk Street's essential spice and spice blends; and buying and storing basics.

    Recipes in this class include:

    Curried Tarka Popcorn
    Tahini Cauliflower with Dukkah
    Somali Chicken Soup with Berbere
    Pinchos Morunos, Sspiced Basque Pork Tenderloin
    Honey Apricot Compote with Bay and Greek Yogurt
     
    Please note: This is not a hands-on class. In this class you will watch and interact as the instructor prepares several dishes using a variety of strategies and techniques. You will sample from generous tasting portions of the demonstrated dishes.
