Hop on the tahini train! We’ve been experimenting in the kitchen with the latest culinary craze, tahini (rich sesame paste). And we’re using a particularly great organic tahini we sourced from Turkey. In this class you’ll bake tahini butter cookies, tahini banana bread made with Michigan wheat flour and black sesame seeds, and tahini and almond filled croissants with a carob drizzle.
