“Hi everyone!It's time to save the date for the third annual Filipino Festival in Malden!

The Filipinos are religious and family-oriented, with an appreciation for art, fashion, music and food. This four-hour festival is filled with family-friendly activities, cultural performances and LOTS OF FOOD! Yes, a lot of good food - not only Filipino cuisine but also a taste of Japanese, Spanish, Chinese and others.

This program is possible thanks to a partnership with RE/MAX Trinity of Malden, and is also supported in part by a grant from the Malden Cultural Council, a local agency, with additional support from the Mass Cultural Council, a state agency.The third annual Filipino Festival will be held on June 22nd, Saturday from 3:30PM to 7:30PM at the Malden YMCA.”

Change the Way You Bake

From the event page:

“When we bake at Milk Street, we draw on ingredients from the savory side of the kitchen and techniques we've learned around the world to make better sweets. In this hands-on baking class, you'll learn to fine-tune flavor by toasting flours, using fresh herbs and embracing bitterness; create better texture with rice flour and nut butters; and create lasting impact by using fewer, more intense, ingredients. After you've practiced new techniques by making and tasting Rosemary Pine Nut Cookies, Sesame Almond Cookies, and Filipino Coconut-Rice Cupcakes, you'll get to work on a final baking challenge to showcase what you've learned.

This is a hands-on baking class led by Milk Street instructor Deb Steinfeld.
