Don’t forget, folks! The Jonathans are back on Thursday nights at the Fullerton Arboretum this fall! Our three part, holiday focused cooking series kicks off this week with an Early Fall Dinner Party. The menu which includes winter squash dip, grilled ratatouille, savory grilled pork loin and chocolate hazelnut cookies, will be complemented by white lillet cocktails. A special feature of this Autumn Harvest series is that each class member will get to take home a special, hand crafted item, and receive full instruction on how to make that item at home! This week’s special take home is Fig & Balsamic jam, of course made by the Jonathans! This amazing and unique jam can be used in a variety of ways in your holiday meals. Come to class to get the details and claim your very own jar!
The direct link to sign up for class is right here. Just be sure to select the proper date. Remember that your purchase supports the Fullerton Arboretum’s education program!
The October Thursdays in the Kitchen class (10/24) will focus on a fabulous Thanksgiving meal, and the November class (11/21) will explore an exciting Christmas / New Years meal. Menus for both will be released soon!
