5:30pm Cooking with Herbs from the Arboretum: Rowan O’Connell-Gates
March 12 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm
The UC Davis Arboretum grows an abundance of fresh, aromatic herbs. Herbs are some of the few greens in the human diet that provide a density of antioxidants usually only found in wild plants. Learn how to add these nutrients and new flavor dimensions to your cooking with herbs that flourish in Davis.
The instructor, Rowan O’Connell-Gates, is a fourth-year student at the University of California, Davis. Growing up in Berkeley, CA, Rowan learned to appreciate food from an early age. He has spent the past year working in the kitchen of Alice Waters’s acclaimed Berkeley restaurant, Chez Panisse. He is the founder of the Davis Supper Club.
