Meyer Lemon's are one of the Bay Area's most beautiful and fragrant produce. Whether you have your own Meyer Lemon tree or have a generous neighbor who does, cooking with this citrus gem is delicious and rewarding. This class will showcase this wonderful fruit in all of it's glory; sweet, savory, preserved and more.
Citrus is incredibly versatile in the kitchen, and Meyer Lemons are no exception to the rule. In this class with Pim Techamuanvivit of the incredibly popular food blog Chez Pim, she will take you step by step through a variety of recipes, leaving you prepared to master the Meyer Lemon in your own kitchen.
Pim will show you how to prepare a simple preserved lemon, then whip up a delicious Moroccan chicken tajine with it. Next will be a demo on making lemon curd to use in a tangy, sweet French lemon tart, and jar up the rest for scones or toasts later. Also on the agenda is a decadent lemon yogurt cake, and you’ll learn how to dress it up for a posh trifle. We’ll also learn how to create Meyer lemon marmalade, which will make lovely holiday gifts for some special (and lucky) people in your life.
Pim is no longer teaching at Love Apple. She has opened a restaurant in San Francisco called Kin Khao.
Pim is the author of The Foodie Handbook: the (almost) definitive guide to gastronomy (Chronicle Books 2009). Her popular blog, Chez Pim, chronicles her globetrotting adventures –and misadventures- in the world of all things edible, from her own kitchen in Northern California, to the vibrant street-side fares in Asia, and the refined world of Three Michelin Star restaurants in Europe. Raised in a family of foodies in Bangkok, Pim comes from a diverse and wonderful culinary background. Pim's recipes, writings, and photography have appeared in the New York Times, Food & Wine Magazine, and Bon Appetit magazine. The Guardian UK ranked Chez Pim one of the world's 50 most powerful blogs. Fast Company also named Pim one of the most influential women in Technology in 2010.
As are all of our future workshops, this class will be held at Love Apple Farm's new location, 2317 Vine Hill Road, Santa Cruz, CA.
