Join Emily Beggs of Kin and Kitchen for an evening of oak worship. We’ll sample acorn-based snacks and discuss the cross-cultural significance and uses of acorns, as well as the ecology of California Oak Woodlands and their contributions to biodiversity in our home state. We’ll explore acorn nutrition, culinary uses, oak identification and conservation.
