Culinary Series and Flower Shows Offer Up Feasts for the Soul

Posted on 02/15/24 by Colleen Cadman

AARP is excited to join Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens for two fantastic virtual series.

The Fresh Eats Cooking Series is in collaboration with Phipps’ Culinary Arts education program. Chef Emily Larsen will lead each demo-style class that will expand your culinary skills as she demonstrates how to use familiar favorites from the garden in bold new ways. The series will include menus and downloadable ingredient lists so you can prepare your entrée along with Chef Larsen or simply watch her techniques and create your meal at another time.
