It's Shortcake Making Time — Learn How at Nashville Farmers' Market

Posted By on Fri, May 16, 2014 at 6:15 AM

As berries and peaches come into season at the Nashville Farmers' Market, it's time to start thinking about jams and preserves. Local culinarians RB Quinn and Mindy Merrell of the Cheater Chef site are experts at creating palates for those lovely compotes to sit upon. They have previously taught classes on cornbread and biscuits at the market, and now they are turning their talents to shortcakes.

They'll be sharing their wealth of information at a hands-on seminar this Sunday, May 18, from 5 to 7 p.m. For $35 per person, you'll learn just about everything you need to know about these sweet biscuits. Here's the course description from their syllabus:

Come see how different combinations of a few everyday ingredients makes great styles of shortcake. In two fast-paced hours, with the help of our lab partners (that's you), we'll whip up all kinds of shortcake and experiment with self-rising and all-purpose flours, leavening, buttermilk vs. sweet milk, dough handling, and fat choices. Find out what you like and why you like it.

Come hungry and ready to roll up your sleeves. Class includes our Cheater Chef Shortcake Lab Manual with lots of recipes.
