Meet Your Maker is a new series, brought to you by The Sundry (1706 Baltimore) and The Recommended Daily, which gives you intimate access to food artisans in Kansas City.
We’re launching the series with Tyler Beckett, the founder of Hugo Tea Company — a handcrafted tea business that uses direct-from-origin and organic teas. Our sit down with Beckett is set for Thursday, April 16, from 7 to 8 p.m. on the second floor of The Sundry (there’s a beautiful classroom you likely haven’t been to yet). The tickets ($22) for the session are available here.
Each hour-long class, which is limited to 24 people, will feature a conversation with a food company’s founder. They’ll talk about how they got started and their process. We’ll take questions throughout the discussion from the audience.
Class attendees will also get the chance to taste and learn more about the food or drink being featured during a demonstration or tasting. And then, with the help of The Sundry, you will leave with a sample and a guide on how to make something using that sample. Meet Your Maker will be a monthly series and we’ve already identified the makers for our next several conversations, including a chat with chocolatier and ice cream maker Christopher Elbow. We’ll announce the next speaker in April and tickets for the May class will go on sale at 9 a.m. on April 17.
This is your chance to meet the artisans and crafters of Kansas City and find out why they love what they do. Are you ready to Meet Your Maker?[Logo by Killer Kite Productions]
