We created two savory and innovative snacks: a Whipped Tangerine and Balsamic Goat Cheese Fig, and Smokey Turmeric Roasted Almonds. Chef John closed the night with a demonstration featuring a refined Barbecue Shrimp and Guacamole Tostada, paired with a Mango Cocktail presented in a unique beaker cocktail glass from our friends at World Kitchen. Thank you for coming to see us and we look forward to the next exciting RTD event!
