PIRCH Event Series: New Traditions in Merry Making!
This time of year, memories of holidays past evoke a sense of nostalgia and childlike wonder. It also represents time to discover new traditions and engage our creativity alongside new friends and family members. As we prepare to gather, host and indulge a little (or a lot!), our holiday motto: mix it up! Celebrate the best of the traditions you’ve shared for years and make room for the new.
Join us at PIRCH to learn to make an elegant winter brunch, bake your holiday cookies in our kitchen and enjoy a special visit from Miraval Resort & Spa’s Pastry Chef and author, Kim Macy, who will teach us how to make rich, gluten-free chocolate molten cake and chocolate peanut butter meringues. Our Young Culinary Masters will make gingerbread houses and ice cookies, too. Merry Everything!
