Wants a kitchen full of jars, jams, and homemade cheese.

Intro to Pickling

$65.00

Learn to preserve local, seasonal vegetables! The singular Shakirah Simley will cover the process, ingredients, technique and science of pickling. Every student will leave with jars of in-house concoctions. This course is equally suitable for the novice pickler or the more experienced. Hearty snacks, wine, and beer will be served.  

This class is a mix of hands-on and demonstration.

Making Miso

$65.00

Mariko is the founder of Aedan, a local company making traditional Japanese fermented foods; she joined the La Cocina food incubator program in 2012, and now sells at the Ferry Plaza farmers’ market.

Join Mariko for this course on the basics of making miso. You will leave with your very own 2-pounds of handcrafted miso, which will be fully mature after six months of aging at home. Miso soup with local vegetables and rice balls, beer, and wine will be served.

 

 

Community Can Jam: Tomatoes

$65.00

The season of preserving is upon us! With ripe tomatoes bursting off the grocery shelves, it’s time to dust off that big canning pot and put up a batch of summery goodness to last through the winter. Preserving tomatoes is a hot and messy affair best managed with a little help from our friends. Our Community Can Jam is a new experiment - it’s not a class, exactly, though jam-master Shakirah Simley will be on hand to guide us through her recipe.

Buttermilk to Ghee

$55.00

Start with fresh cream; ripen it into creme fraiche. Turn your creme fraiche into cultured butter and real buttermilk. Finally, turn your culutured butter into the purest, most luxurious food on Earth: ghee!

Smoking Primer

$85.00

A 4-hour cooking class culminating in dinner served with wine and beer.

Arguably the oldest food preservation technique, smoking is the most historically significant aspect of charcuterie.  Join us for an in-depth class exploring the many unexpected and delicious applications of this ancient tradition.

Can Jam: Cherries

$65.00

The season of jam is upon us! Cherries have officially arrived, and it’s time to dust off that big canning pot and put up a batch of late spring goodness to last through the winter. Making jam is a hot and messy affair best managed with a little help from our friends. Our Community Can Jam is a new experiment - it’s not a class, exactly, though jam-master Shakirah Simley will be on hand to guide us through her recipe. Rather, it’s an old-fashioned community gathering that will include equal parts socializing, learning, and standing over a hot pot of jam.
