Get your sweet tooth ready
this week’s Chef Demo with

David Jeffries of David Jeffries Kitchen – 10:00 am on 10/16

Chef Demos are sponsored by Whole Foods Market

What kid wouldn’t want an Italian cookie in their treat bag come this Halloween? If you’re that kind of kid at heart, don’t miss this week’s Chef Demo with Market vendor David Jeffries! If you haven’t already come to love his sweet and savory biscotti, don’t worry, that just means that you haven’t tried them yet. Jeffries has been perfecting these twice-baked goodies since he was a young boy in his grandmother’s kitchen. His love of baking led him to an acclaimed career as a pastry chef working in some of the country’s finest restaurants. Over the past 20 years, Jeffries has delighted sweet teeth everywhere from the Four Seasons Hotel Atlanta’s Park 75 restaurant to high-profile events like the Emmys and Grammy award shows. He now focuses on his signature dessert, the light-as-air biscotti he creates with local, sustainable, all-natural ingredients. With fun flavors including Orange Spiced Hazelnut, Chocolate Chocolate-Chip, Savory Pear & Rosemary and Gorgonzola & Walnut (plus gluten-free options), you won’t want to miss the creative cookie tips David Jeffries has to share this Saturday – don’t forget your treat bag!
