Dave Lieberman presenting on Herbs

Our educational topic for the evening was a hands-on overview of herbs from OCBC member and resident farmer’s market expert, Dave Lieberman! We slapped, tore, sniffed & tasted a great variety of herbs from a local Vietnamese market, tried & true favorites and crazy fish-smelling exotics!


Here’s a helpful handout: OCBC Vietnamese Herb Primer (Dave Lieberman)
