SANTA MONICA CHOCOLATE SOCIETY: VENEZUELA – Chuao and Porcelana
 

Venezuela is considered an almost mystical region for cacao growing and will be the focus of our next gathering. The Chuao village in the northern coastal mountains is famous for its dense rainforests and flavorful beans that are extremely hard to access. Cacao is the main economic activity for families of the valley, and cacao workers are primarily women, as men of the valley work in fishing.

 

Chuao cacao is not just an agricultural product; it represents their proud way of life, identity, culture, language and land. Since the political unrest in Venezuela, it has been extremely difficult for chocolate makers to procure any beans from that country.

 

We will have the opportunity to taste bars made from both Chuao beans and Porcelana beans. Porcelana are precious beans from the region south of Lake Maracaibo in Venezuela. Estación Experimental Chama, is a germplasm bank dedicated to the preservation of this rare cacao. The bars we taste will be from some of the best chocolate makers in the world including but not limited to Ruth’s favorite maker, Soma Chocolate!

SOURDOUGH 101
 

Gather 'round as we knead, stretch, fold and proof our way to beautiful, naturally leavened loaves. You'll come into class and shape two loaves of bread using dough our chef has prepared; one boule and one pan loaf. Once nestled in proofing baskets and loaf pans to rise, we will gather to learn about the science of wild yeast, gluten and explore the rainbow of flavors and textures of different varieties of heirloom grains (milled in Pasadena at Grist & Toll))! You'll taste Spelt, Rye, Hard Reds and Whites and Sonora wheats before choosing your favorites to make your own bread dough.

Following a quick break, you'll feed a sourdough starter and prepare a levain, then mix the dough you'll take home to bake your own loaves after class. Once the loaves you shaped are fully proofed, we'll learn to expertly slash and bake them and, while they're busy baking away in the ovens, we will make a batch of jam and churn some butter with the loveliest cream from our friends at Straus.

Please bring one large bowl to class, a jar for your starter and a large paper bag to carry your loaves home with! Stone-milled flours from Grist & Toll are available for purchase in our storefront for all your bread-making dreams.

Wild yeast

Hydration and Extraction
Milling and history of wheat cultivation

ACS: The American Cancer Society is the largest nongovernmental cancer organization working in more than 5,000 communities across the nation to improve the lives of cancer patients and their families. We accelerate progress through our work in three mission focus areas: discovery, advocacy, and patient support. For more than 100 years, we have helped lead an evolution in the way the world prevents, detects, treats, and thinks about cancer. As the nation’s preeminent cancer-fighting organization, we fund and conduct research, share expert information, support people impacted by cancer, spread the word about ways to reduce cancer risk, and through our advocacy affiliate, the American Cancer Society Cancer Action (ACS CAN), advocate for public policy change. In 2022, more than 1.9 million new cancer cases will be diagnosed in the United States and more than 600,000 Americans will die from cancer. We have an opportunity not only to support people throughout all stages of their cancer journey today, but to take meaningful steps toward the goal to reduce the death rate from cancer by at least 50% over the next 25 years.

Cal Spirit: Co-founded by Wolfgang Puck and Sherry Lansing in 1984, California Spirit is among the most acclaimed food and wine events in Southern California, raising more than $17 million for the fight against cancer! California Spirit brings award-winning chefs and Los Angeles foodies together to celebrate the American Cancer Society's progress in the fight against cancer.
