Love Apple Farms-to-Table

Cynthia Sandberg of Love Apple Farms announces a new collaboration with The French Culinary Institute in Campbell, California for a new class called Mastering the Art of the Tomato. Love Apple Farms takes the classroom into the garden at their Santa Cruz education center for hands-on lessons in planting, pruning, fertilizing and staking for the best-tasting tomatoes. Students finish their classes at the Campbell campus, only 30 mintues away, for an afternoon of preparing and enjoying hot and cold dishes from Love Apple Farms heirloom tomatoes. The experienced chef-instructors from The FCI will guide students through a favorite tomato recipe from David Kinch of Manresa, the dean of The FCI. The all-day class Mastering the Art of the Tomato takes place on Saturday, August 20. More collaborative classes at Love Apple Farms and The FCI include Exotic Herbs on September 10, and Vegetables of Asia on September 24.
