Rhubarb! I Chef Agnes Devereux of the Village Tea Room
Grab a stool at the counter and cozy up while Chef Agnes Devereux, named Edible Hudson Valley's 2017 Hudson Valley Culinarian, takes you on a gustatory adventure. In this class we are learning everything Rhubarb! Rhubarb might be a seasonal darling, but that doesn’t mean that everyone knows what it is exactly. If you’re one of those people who secretly has no idea what rhubarb is, or think you know but aren’t confident enough to say it out loud, you’ve come to the right place. We’re about to break Rhubarb down for you in cuisine. Create a Rhubarb Gin Collins, roast Organic Scottish Salmon wit Rhubarb braised red cabbage, create rhubarb relish and finally bake a classic Strawberry Rhubarb Pie in the homey comfort of our farmhouse kitchen. You will learn under the unpretentious guidance of this warm and favorite local chef.
$85 per student includes hands-on workshop, eat what you make + wine tastings
ABOUT THE CHEF
Many people claim to have spent their whole life in the hospitality business. Few can claim to have been born in it! Agnes Devereux’s story began in a small village at the foot of a mountain in “the golden vale” of Ireland. Her parents had a hotel and before home births were fashionable she was born in room number nine. Ireland’s hospitality is world famous and life revolved around their guests, many of whom came back year after year from all corners of the world. Baking was one of her favourite tasks, inspiring some of her best childhood memories of delicious meals and the memory of a house filled with the scent of stews and soups and cakes.
From Ireland to Paris to Manhattan and now upstate New York, her restaurant The Village TeaRoom Restaurant & Bake Shop in New Paltz is a testament to her culinary history. From Duck Confit to Dingle Pies, the menu pays homage to comfort foods from around the world while using the finest of local ingredients.
