The sky is the limit on these tastings! If you would like to set up a tasting & demo event for your family, friends, co-workers, Girl Scout or Boy Scout group, 4-H group, or any other group - email  The tasting and demo can be focused on a holiday, a specific theme (camping, BBQ, vegetarian, etc), or just good food!  The events are a combination of some food we make together, and, for the sake of time, some food we have already prepared. As you taste the delicious dishes, we will talk about the spices we use & the role they play in food preparation. We will be able to answer all your spice questions as we go along.
