The Spice Way in Encinitas is offering two free holiday-themed cooking demonstrations on Dec. 11.
At 12:30 and 3 p.m. that day, owner Debbie Kornberg will teach demo recipes, including poached pear salad with a wine lemongrass vinaigrette, sweet potato latkes for Hanukkah and Christmas Morning Pancakes.
For more information, visit The Spice Way in the Camino Village Plaza, 260 N. El Camino Real or go to thespicewaysd.eventbrite.com.
“We often are moving in different directions but having special family customs can act as an anchor that binds us together,” says Kornberg, who has a master’s degree in education.
Store hours are 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., with tasting offered throughout, and shoppers can get a 15 percent discount on all Spice Way products on Dec. 11.
