This class meets at our Court Street location
American Taste is a series of eight classes deconstructing the most popular flavors of American food. In this class, we'll tackle black pepper.
We'll look at the history of this spice, and discover how it went from being as precious as gold to the ubiquitous plastic shaker on a diner table.
Then, we'll track its production, from life on a vine in Sumatra to tri-color pepper in the spice aisle of Whole Foods.
And lastly, we'll taste five varieties of pepper from different regions, discuss pepper recipes past and present, and analyze the flavor qualities of America's favorite savory spice.
