“Spring drew on . . . and a greenness grew over those brown beds, which, freshening daily, suggested the thought that Hope traversed them at night, and left each morning brighter traces of her steps.”
January 1st is considered the start of the new year, but it seems to me that spring is the beginning of things. The bright yellow-green of young shoots and leaves signals that life is starting over once again. If you’re a person who likes to cook, then now is the time when you’ll be looking for the first local salad greens, rhubarb, asparagus, artichokes, strawberries, pea shoots, and morels. You might be thinking about having salad for dinner, grilling outside, or going on a picnic. We just happen to have a class for each of those! We also have more hands-on classes this quarter, so if you’re hoping to learn to make expert scones, sushi, Dim Sum, or decorate cakes like a pro, now is your chance! This is also your chance to sign up for some very fun activities such as our wine and beer dinners, or one of our market tours. How about attending a tea with your child? We have so much going on at BSC that it’s impossible to mention it all here. Take a look through our newly designed brochure—I think you’ll like what you see! Enjoy this season of new beginnings and hope to see you soon, upstairs in the BSC kitchen!
