Love Blooms, gay news, Washington Blade“Love Blooms,” a cherry blossom-inspired virtual cooking class hosted by the Greater D.C. chapter of the Human Rights Campaign, is Tuesday April 27 at 6 p.m.

Chefs Erik Bruner-Yang and Marcelle Afram lead participants through preparations for their spring-themed meal kit, which serves two.

For this intimate end to an isolating winter, Bruner-Yang and Afram merge their Tawainese, Japanese, and Palestinian cooking styles for this three-course vegetarian meal, which includes Onigiri, scallion pancakes with sour cherry romanesco and homemade cannoli for dessert.

Participants can pick up their meal kits in-person at Maketto (1351 H St. NE) on Monday, April 26. Further instructions, and the Zoom link, will be emailed before the event.

Tickets for this seasonal event are $40 and all proceeds benefit HRC’s ongoing work for LGBTQ equality.
