Santa Cruz Summer Mango Mania, a Hands-On Cooking Class

May 19, 2016



Come With Your Inquisitive Mind, Leave With Mango Expertise!

Summertime screams mango. As the Mexican mango season blossoms in the peak of our summer, we begin to crave more and more of this sweet, perfumy fruit. Despite mango being the most widely consumed fruit in the world, it is one of the most intimidating in our kitchens. This hands-on class takes the pressure off, teaching the basics and beyond of all things mango. From selection to storage advice, to the best cutting techniques for your skill level (including kids). The class will cover a gamut of simple, yet tantalizing recipes, yielding several more ideas and kitchen tips to use all summer long. There will be plenty of mango nutritional wisdom offered and juicy tidbits of grower and agricultural knowledge. You will walk away with the sweetest ideas for your summer #MangoMania, as well as a case of organic mangoes in hand, thanks to Earl’s Organic and Crespo Organic Mangoes!
