Terrific Tastings: Let’s Go Nuts!

Sunday, December 6th

2-3:30pm (PST) on Zoom

Ticket Sales end on Sat, Nov 21st.

While working out of their homes and a small, shared production kitchen in Berkeley, CA, the Artisana Organics founders started by selling almonds and almond butter. Their offerings grew to include raw, organic nut butters made of cashews, walnuts, pecans & coconut. They went on to introduce wonderful, unique blends of macadamia nuts & coconut as well as hemp & Brazil nuts (yes, Brazil nuts...the ones often left over in the dish of mixed nuts...but, this butter is terrific!). Get some crackers, slice some apples, pour some sparkling wine (or other refreshing beverage) – we’ll ship you the nut butters – and, join culinary host James Sokol for a live, online, guided nut butter tasting with a special guest!

Or, forget the research altogether and just join culinary host James Sokol as he “zooms” you to meet Greyston Bakery leadership team members Sara Westbrook and Sunitha Malieckal. Learn more about Greyston’s interesting story & inspiring community impact, get insights into their product & business development, and – of course – take a guided tasting of their brownies & blondies!
