Knowledge @ Noon Gifts from the Kitchen
Leavenworth Public Library
December 5, 2014 @ Noon

Gifts from the kitchen need not be elaborate, but rather a special way to share a little of yourself. The best holiday gifts are from the kitchen. Get a head start on your gift giving with ideas for cookie and drink mixes, decadent truffles, festive packaging and more. Demonstrations, recipes and tastings.
Mindful Eating
