The Mighty Lentil
 

Discover the most powerful protein in your pantry.  Did you know that according to the Washington Post, “Pound for pound, raw lentils have more protein than steak, and while not as protein-dense once cooked, they pack even more iron than meat, in addition to other vitamins and minerals”? What is even more fascinating is the lentils' important role in the fight against climate change.  “While start-ups scramble to engineer a sustainable protein, from lab-grown meat to fake burgers, lentils are a ready solution, one with a proven record”  Join us to learn more about why lentils can help battle climate change and why Americans eat the least amount of lentils in the world.

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.

SANTA MONICA CHOCOLATE SOCIETY: Jamaica
 

Join Ruth Kennison on Tuesday May 7th for the Santa Monica Chocolate Society Jamaica event!  We will indulge in the exquisite flavors of bean-to-bar chocolate from Jamaica, crafted by the talented artisan Nick Davis, founder of One One Cacao.Nick Davis's journey to becoming a chocolatier is as rich and diverse as the flavors of his creations. Hailing from the Great British coffee boom of the 90s, Nick's passion for quality and craftsmanship was ignited while working in one of the first independent coffee roasters in the North of England.
He then established himself as a journalist and foreign correspondent with the BBC, Nick's career took him to Jamaica, his ancestral homeland. Immersed in the island's rich culinary heritage, Nick discovered his passion for chocolate-making after developing a life-threatening food allergy to sulphites. Determined to create clean, natural, and delicious chocolate, Nick founded One One Cacao, operating from a picturesque waterside chocolate lab on Jamaica's north coast.
Throughout the tasting event, we will have the pleasure of virtually meeting Nick Davis himself, a charismatic and passionate chocolate maker. He will guide us through the tasting experience, sharing insights into his journey, the unique flavors of Jamaican cocoa beans, and the artistry behind One One Cacao's delectable creations.
We look forward to sharing this delightful experience with all chocolate newbies and connoisseurs alike.
