Before, food professionals thought of coffee as a single flavor, most often served with breakfast or dessert. About 70% of the coffee drinkers order some food beside. However, very few of them consider matching the coffee with their side. Whether it's an experience, an introduction to Seasonal Healthy Cuisine or simply indulging tasty bites without feeling the guilt. This tasting experience might be for you! Coffee and Food Pairing aims to improve your mouth-feel experience. When different foods share certain key aromas, they are more likely to make the perfect pair! According to chemists, when foods share major flavor and aromatic compounds, they tend to taste good together. Today, specialty coffees offers a wide range of taste and aromas available to the coffee lover. As an introduction to our passion, we welcome you to our path below... Course #1: The genesis - Summer Sunrise Course #2: Seasonal Core Meal Course #3: La creme de la creme treat

The principles behind this jam can be applied to many other fruits. We will be showing how to jazz it up by adding herbs for flavour. THE PICKLE The cheese and pickle sarnie is a staple for our lunches. Here we explain the how and why for pickling vegetables, in this case cucumbers, to make the ultimate pickle. THE BUTTER Simple, freshly churned butter is a joy and surprisingly easy to make. We show a technique using live yoghurt as a starter culture, to give it an extra depth of flavour.
