My students are awesome!

They rocked my Vegan French Baking & Wine Pairing Class: Sweet & Savory Tarts & Galettes on Saturday, June 29th at the beautiful Farm Discovery at Live Earth

They enthusiastically put on their eclectic aprons and beautifully collaborated with each other to make 5 exquisite dishes with organic ingredients from the Live Earth Farm, Santa Cruz Farmer's Market and local organic grocery stores. 

Plus, they made additional delicious dishes from the leftover veggies and fruits. We had an amazing farm-to-table baking and wine pairing class with zero waste. I love that!

Below are the exquisite dishes my awesome students made:

1) Strawberry Lavender Tart with crushed pistachios, and Strawberry Orange Lavender Compote with the leftover strawberries.  

2) Savory Summer Vegetable Tart with zucchini, yellow squash, purple and orange carrots and herbes de Provence, and sautéed Vegetable Medley with the leftover veggies from the tart.

3) Plum Almond Galette (a free-form rustic galette, since we had lots of sliced plums, which went over the dough). After that we still had more plums. So, they made a Plum Orange Lavender Compote, too. 

4) Savory Heirloom Cherry Tomatoes Galette with basil, almond, pistachios, garlic, olive oil and Meyer lemon juice and rinds pesto. 

5) Gourmet Salad with Butter Lettuce, French Radish, Green Olives, capers, pickled shallots and pickled watermelon radishes graced with Tarragon Mustard and Lemon-Herb Dressing

They enjoyed their exquisite culinary creations with McBride Sister's delicious wine, the Truvee Red Blend Central Coast 2013 and organic French roast coffee!  They took home a bottle of this delicious wine, plus a small bag of organic culinary lavender!

Thank you, my fabulous students for your presence in my class and beautiful testimonials. You are the center of my culinary world and a great inspiration!
