The Perfect Biscuits & Scones: Baking with Adrienne Kane

Talented local cookbook author and cooking instructor Adrienne Kane will demystify the world of scratch made biscuits and scones, making them a go-to versatile recipe for a weekend brunch or dinner with friends. Participants will make flaky southern buttermilk biscuits and sweet potato biscuits, as well as two types of scones. Learn multiple techniques for achieving flaky baked goods, working with an assortment of grain flours as well as variations for shaping and cutting doughs.

The Kitchen at CitySeed is located in the CitySeed office at 817 Grand Ave – two blocks from State St and downtown New Haven. Free parking available along Grand Ave and on surrounding streets.

Our New Pay What You Can Ticket System – CItySeed wants cooking education to be accessible to everyone, regardless of income level. In addition to free cooking workshops we offer at our farmers’ markets and in the New Haven community, we are trying out a pay-what-you-can ticket system for workshops in our new Kitchen at CitySeed.  There are three ticket options. Please consider what CitySeed and cooking education means to you – and others. Pay the amount you feel is appropriate:

  • #1- Pay It Forward Tickets which cover class expenses and provide some additional funds to support scholarship tickets,
  • #2 Single Tickets – cover the basic expenses for a class,
  • #3 Scholarship Tickets intended for low income New Haven residents – Ticket price is determined by the honor system and is a sliding scale. For scholarship tickets, please do not choose a fee below $10, and pay as much as you are able. Contact tagan@cityseed.org or at 203-773-3736 x103 with questions.
