Join me for a yogurt-making demo and tasting. I'll guide you through a tasting of popular yogurt brands and share tips on how to be a smarter yogurt shopper. Then I'll demonstrate how to make fail-proof yogurt at home (you’ll sample mine) and how to use yogurt in soups, salads, marinades and more. After the tasting, I'll sign copies of my newest book, Yogurt: Sweet and Savory Recipes for Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner. Now there’s a thoughtful, beautiful and useful Mother’s Day gift!
