Chef and edible gardener Liz Barbour, of The Creative Feast, shares photos and tips for creating a pocket herb garden in a small garden space. Sun, shade, and limited spaces are all challenges that Liz has adapted to in her years of gardening her New Hampshire village property.

Small in size but abundant in variety and harvest, Liz's pocket herb gardens are each a work of art. Following a slide presentation of her herb garden, join Liz for an online cook-a-long demonstration of two seasonal recipes featuring herbs harvested from her gardens. 

This delicious online cook-a-long class is July 26 at 2 pm. Liz will share her cooking wisdom and easy recipes that will add to your healthy eating plan.

​Chef Liz of Hollis NH, built her cooking career in a variety of Boston's catering and restaurant settings. After starting her family, she reentered the food world as a cooking instructor with Liz Barbour's Creative Feast. Her recipes and teaching style connected with her community, and Liz soon had a large following of loyal students. Liz is a regular guest on New Hampshire’s WMUR Cook’s Corner and her cooking demonstrations and recipes are featured in various publications including Where Women Cook, New Hampshire Magazine, the Nashua Telegraph, and The Hippo Press.   

If you’re new to cooking, Liz will take you step-by-step through recipes to build your confidence and inspire you to cook more at home. All of her programs focus on the premise that we are healthier when we cook at home. You’ll learn important cooking skills and will be inspired to cook at home whenever possible. If you are passionate about ingredients, you’ll learn how to select quality ingredients and combine them to create amazing dishes that you can recreate at home for friends and family.
