Dates truly are the fruits of paradise! Did you know that this sweet fruit comes from the date palm trees that have existed on earth for more than 50 million years? In the Middle East, dates are a symbol of hospitality, generosity and gratitude. We love them so much for being a freak of nature. What else tastes like toffee, caramel or butterscotch.

Pastry Chef, Maura Kilpatrick will demonstrate both sweet and savory recipes, including: date maple cake with caramelized apples; grilled cheese with bacon and dates; date walnut salad with balsamic vinaigrette; orange date bars; and Maura’s famous brown butter pecan pie with espresso dates.
