Everyone knows that food tastes better when it's made from scratch -- but unless you had an older relative teach you the secret behind that flaky pie crust or savory chicken soup, you might not have the know-how necessary to put such killer foods together.
Heirloom Gardens to the rescue. The very-green venue at 4460 Winona Court is offering a Simple from Scratch class at 6p.m. tonight. Here's what you can expect:
You'll learn how to make no-knead, multi-grain bread; homemade mozzarella; marinated asparagus salad with a balsamic reduction; vegetable barley soup; and apple dumplings with ice cream and homemade caramel sauce.
The class costs $50; for more details, call 303-956-7203 or visit www.eatwhereulive.com.
