Briarpatch Co-op Cooking Classes: International Appetizers

with Mayumi Tavalero

The holiday season will be here shortly, so now is a great time to explore something new for your next gathering. We’ll take our inspiration from several countries, including France, Japan, India, Italy, and the Middle East with these delectable appetizers. Class is hands-on and will feature: Roasted Red Bell Pepper Bruschetta, Savory Samosas (potato filled pastry), Gyoza (pork filled dumplings), and Tapenade (olive and anchovy dip).
