“One little thing can revive a guy, and that is a piece of rhubarb pie

~ Garrison Keillor, A Prairie Home Companion

Rhubarb has long been known as “the pie plant” for good reason - it makes a great-tasting pie, alone or paired with strawberries.  Wisdom House Head Chef Margaret Jacobs will demonstrate how to make both in this hands-on workshop and tasting that will make mouths water and hearts happy.  Recipes included.

Commuter: $30
