Scone Making

Join us for an afternoon of making scones! During the workshop, we’ll discuss scone strategies for keeping this delicious baked good light and airy (not too dense!), pairing ingredients to make a tasty combination, and how to bake them with success. Participants will be able to choose from a wide variety of ingredients—ranging from lemon zest and orange blossom to chocolate and rose water—to make your very own, uniquely flavored batch of scones.

While your scones are in the oven, you’ll be invited to continue your culinary creativity with a mini workshop on tea spicing, creating your own flavor of hot drink with a wide range of spices—from pink peppercorn to hibiscus flower to orange peel. Make a cup to pair with your scones when they’re fresh out of the oven.

Come with your curiosity, enjoy a cup full of warm tea spiced to your liking while you learn, and leave with a recipe and a batch (4-6 scones) of your very own, custom made scones.

Date: Saturday, February 24th
Time: 1:00 – 2:30 PM
Cost: $40 per person
