Three Cooks in Bemidji

On August 13 I will be teaching in Bemidji with two friends who are also cooking teachers. The classes sound great and it will be fun for me to learn from my friends but I am also looking forward to seeing the Bemidji area and going out on my friend Sue's pontoon and floating lazily on the Mississippi. Since I grew up in Pennsylvania I haven't seen many parts of MN so in this steamy month I'll be going up north along with many Minnesotans.

Both of the desserts I will be preparing take advantage of summer berries which will be at their peak. Not only will they add color and freshness, but I am reading more and more of the many ways berries contribute to good health.
