ROCKLAND — On Sunday, Feb. 12, at 3:30 p.m. the Good Tern Co-op Food Store will offer a class in how to make a simply elegant chocolate olive oil cake just in time for Valentine’s Day.  Instructor Julia H. will use Maine Grains’s spelt flour and suggest adaptations for all your dietary needs — all ingredients are available at the Good Tern Co-op store. The class will be held in person at the Good Tern’s Hole in the Wall Bagel Shop, 754 Main Street, in Rockland. All are welcome. The snow date is Wednesday, Feb. 19. Donations to cover costs will be gratefully accepted.

Instructor Julia H. calls this cake “plump and delicious—a real crowd favorite and easy to bake. It’s the perfect treat for Valentine’s Day or any other day!” Julia is a local baker with a decade of experience, working most recently with Uproot Pie Company.
