Cooking with Tea

with Marianne E Russo


Did you know that tea was first enjoyed as a food? There is still good reason to enjoy cooking and baking with tea. Join us for a fun night of tasting fabulous foods with tea as an ingredient, including examples of an appetizer, an entree, a side dish and a dessert. We’ll explore creative ways to use tea as an ingredient, pair tea with foods and using tea to enhance the flavors of your favorite dishes. Come at least a little bit hungry! Recipes will be provided. Registration closes at noon on 2/27.

Marianne Russo is a Certified Tea Specialist and owner of Nellie’s Tea Company. She studied under experts, including Pearl Dexter of Tea, A Magazine, and John Harney of Harney & Sons Fine Teas. She has traveled to China and Japan's tea fields and factories, the World Tea Expo and tea rooms in the US and abroad.
