tapas

Last week, our "live" Great Taste show debuted from Hy-Vee's Club Room/Kitchen Lab and the place was packed and buzzing. Our good friend, Gisella Isidori, wowed the crowd with a dazzling array of dishes including bruschetta, bucatini cacio e pepe, polenta with two sauces, and a Sicilian orange salad.

Indian Hills students in the KRUU studioThis Wednesday at 7pm, host Steve Boss and Great Taste is back at Hy-Vee for another "live" show.  We invite you to come and learn about the world of Spanish tapas with culinary students from Indian Hills.  This is part one of a two-part tapas extravaganza. 

Students who have previously participated in the  educational exchange program and studied in Vallodolid, Spain, along with Chef/Instructor Liz Peralta will discuss the basic principles of creating tapas dishes.  In part two (next month) students who are currently in Vallodolid will show off what they learned.  No matter if you come to one or both events, you'll get to taste some luscious dishes.

Don't miss out. Tell your friends. It's fun, tasty, educational and free at Hy-Vee. If you can't make it, tune in at 100.1FM locally, or online at www.kruufm.com.
