Farm-to-KITCHEN Cooking Class: Food and Folklore of the Caribbean Presented by The Trustees Let us take you to the tropics this winter - without the long plane ride! We're bringing you a seasonal & local twist on the traditional flavors of Afro-Caribbean cuisine at our Farm-to-KITCHEN cooking class with Chef Tamika R. Francis of Food & Folklore. Chef Tamika uses primarily New England produce to make tropically-inspired recipes using indigenous techniques and story-telling to celebrate her ancestral home of Jamaica, and the spices and intense flavors that make this corner of the world so magical.  In this lively, hands-on cooking class you'll learn how to utilize the produce and products of the farmers and artisans of the Boston Public Market. Guided by Chef Tamika you'll create an exciting multi-course meal based on seasonal, local food, and increase your comfort in the kitchen through new knife skills, techniques, and flavor profiles. In addition to learning a new cooking style, you'll enjoy tastes of three local New England wines that pair perfectly with recipes we'll be making, courtesy of The Massachusetts Wine Shop.
