CANNING 101: Making Jams, Preserves and Pickles
 

Learn how easy it is to make jams and preserves from market-fresh produce without spending a lot on equipment (in fact, you really only need jars and a large pot).  We'll cover the basics of canning and how to safely seal your jars and then get on with the fruits of the season.  Let us peruse the Wednesday market for the freshest berries and newest fruits and stir up some sweet, spreadable magic.  

Classic Strawberry Preserves

Blueberry Jam

Dill Pickles

You’ll take home as many jars as can go around! No need to bring jars; they will be provided by us.

The science of yeast, gluten, fermentation and aging will be covered, as well as seasonal jams and handmade cheeses.

We will learn how to grow our own cultures, feed the sourdough for maximum strength and how to create loaves with thick crusts, wonderfully irregular holes and pearly crumbs.  You’ll discover why northern France and Northern California are prized for their strong-flavored breads and how to make a series of beautiful rustic loaves with your own signature scoring.

THE SANTA MONICA CHOCOLATE SOCIETY:Confections from Santa Barbara to Madison, WI
 

The Santa Monica Chocolate Society gathers every month to celebrate and savor the finest, rarest and tastiest chocolate on Earth. Once a month, Gourmandise chocolate expert Ruth Kennison opens her wondrous cabinet of carefully curated bean-to-bar chocolates from around the world for thoughtful tastings and discussions. Each class features a different themes; from chocolate tastings to guest chocolate makers, confectioners or cacao bean farmers to flavor hunters. No bonbon will be left behind. You can expect to taste a minimum of 5 exquisite chocolates.

 

THEME:

This evening will be dedicated to two award-winning chocolatiers and chocolate shop owners. Maya from Chocolate Maya in Santa Barbara and Megan from Madison Chocolate in Madison, WI, will travel in (with samples) to share their unique perspectives on opening chocolate businesses. The two women have forged a unique relationship as 'sister shops' and are excited to share about the highs and lows of chocolate entrepreneurship.

Cacao is grown 10-20 degrees north and south of the Equator.  Traditionally, countries that grew cacao did not produce chocolate, and there are many reasons for that, ranging from environmental factors to geopolitics. Countries that grow cacao are now, thanks to direct trade and the growth of the craft chocolate movement, producing some of the most interesting single-origin chocolate on the market. This is good news for chocolate lovers but, more importantly, for the local growers and suppliers in their respective regions.  Find out why and how delicious chocolate made in the countries they are grown in can taste!

Gather 'round as we knead, stretch, fold and proof our way to beautiful, naturally leavened loaves.

Let's take our sourdough breads to the next level! You'll master the art of the porridge loaves by first learning to 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, sprouting, soaking and work with a variety of seeds and grains for your custom loaves. You'll get to work with freshly milled flour from Pasadena's Grist & Toll, mill flour from Tehachapi Grain Project's latest harvest choose your favorites to make your own bread dough (you'll be taking that home to bake some loaves off at your leisure).

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 make some fresh cheeses with milk from our friend at Straus. Oh- can't forget the sinful homemade hazelnut spread (be sure to bring a jar for that as well).

Please bring two large bowls to class, a jar for your starter and another for the cheese 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.

SOURDOUGH 101: Wild Yeast Breads & Jam
 

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.

Learn the Science Behind:
Wild yeast
Fermentation
Hydration and Extraction
Milling and history of wheat cultivation
 
Make:
Sourdough starter
Dough for two loaves of bread
Seasonal preserves
Homemade butter
 
Bake Off:
1 boule
