Growing and Cooking with Herbs, presented by Chef Shari and hosted at South Shore Gallery

Join Chef Shari on Sunday, June 14 beginning at 2pm for a presentation on Growing and Cooking with Herbs. Think about how great it would be to be able to go in the garden and gather your own tasty garden herbs to give your dishes a world of wonderful flavors! For many, the prospect of starting and maintaining an herb garden seems daunting or even impossible. Fortunately, you don’t need a green thumb and acres of land to begin a garden. Chef Shari will demonstrate how easy it is to plant container herb gardens. Herbs require little space (even a windowsill will do) and don’t demand a lot of time or attention. With minimal effort, you can have a perpetual supply of spice and flavor to enhance your kitchen and home. A well-rounded herb garden can be a cook’s best friend. Chef Shari will prepare some of her favorite herb dishes, perfect for our hot summer days. South Shore Gallery is located at 447 Apollo Beach Blvd. in Apollo Beach. Reservations not required, but appreciated- 813.645.0483.
Chef Shari’s inspiration draws heavily from instinct and seasonality, depending on what is in bloom and what flavors and textures appeal to her. A Chesapeake Bay, MD native, one of Shari's favorite childhood places was her mom’s garden, picking fresh herbs, strawberries, or tomatoes, straight off the vine. Her style and approach to food today pay tribute to those early memories. She learned her love of cooking and gardening from her mother.
Chef Shari was an Army wife for over 25 years and during those years, the happiest times she had was in the kitchen cooking with friends and family. Throughout those years, she has traveled extensively, cooking for all cultures and anywhere from her family of four to a company of soldiers. Now that her husband has retired and her children have “flown the coop” she spends all her energy on food, gardening and wine. Chef Shari is a graduate of the USPCA Culinary Business Academy and has been a Personal Chef in the Riverview area since 2007. Her motto is “Elegantly Easy”. Visit her blog at
