Aerobic Butter Workshop
Sunday, October 28, 2012 from 12:00 PM to 4:00 PM (PDT)
Los Angeles, CA
Artist Michael O’Malley will teach amateur breadmakers the art of baking on the grill outside the Machine Project gallery. Inside, Pop Soda’s Jimmy Fusil conducts an aerobics class/buttermaking workshop, shaking jars of fresh cream until it magically transforms into butter! Pop Soda’s Mike Wait churns fitness tunes and jock jams, including the single “Eat Your Fat,” recorded expressly for the event. Participants will learn about the chemistry of butter and the physics of bread, and maybe even get a good workout, only to finish by enjoying fresh butter on warm bread. While Aerobic Butter’s goal is to spread the physical delight of artisan practices, Anaerobic Bread aims to recreate the social/communal center of the village: the community oven.
