Now that our farmers markets are loaded with a glorious assortment of local produce, join us in our Hudson Valley-Berkshire kitchen as Serge Madikians, a chef known for his use of fresh ingredients and beautiful flavor combinations, will share his secrets. In the demonstration class Serge will show how salads can be composed and seasoned. Plus he will explain the benefits of tomato water and cucumber water, both of which will be in abundance during that time of the year.

Chef Serge will demonstrate how he makes Serevan Tabbouleh and how to make his flavor packed Aragh vinaigrette.  He will also teach you how to unlock the cauliflower as a versatile and underused vegetable in salads. This class will open your eyes and your taste buds, changing how you see vegetables while upping your salad game. Stay cool-as-a-cucumber in this summer salad class and enjoy a delicious lunch afterwards.
