A 1-Day Workshop with 4 class sessions & lunch.
Unleash your inner foodcrafter. This full-day, hands-on workshop will prepare you to start making your own artisanal bread, jam, mustards and ricotta from scratch. Your DIY ambassador will be Institute Director Joseph Shuldiner.
The workshop includes four, 1-hour foodcrafting sessions, catered lunch and beverages. Each participant will be sent home with their very own bread, a take-home containers of cheese, bread dough, a jar of fruit preserves and a container of mustard. You'll also receive the Institute's signature instruction manual with recipes and materials/ingredient resource guide empowering you to recreate everything at home.
Foodcrafting 101 Workshop Includes:
Master the simple technique of bread making from scratch using the no-knead bread recipe from the Institute Director's own cookbook. Learn about types of flour, where to purchase them, how to shape loaves and achieve the perfect crust. You’ll learn how to recreate a professional bread baker's oven at home and produce loaves that rival accomplished bakers.
Get invited to better dinner parties with this easy technique to turn great milk into fluffy, creamy ricotta. You'll be able to take home your cheese with some delicious recipes – if you can wait that long!
Canning is back big time! We will peel, chop, dice and otherwise macerate whatever we find fresh and in season at the farmers’ market that week and learn how to turn it into jam. We will then learn how to can in a water bath and preserve our bounty for up to a year. After class, equipped with your newly-found knowledge, you’ll be well on your way to experimenting at home with other fruits. Besides, we all know someone with a tree of unpicked fruit that simply cries out to be made into jam.
Good artisanal mustard isn’t necessarily something you’ll only find in a fancy jar from France. Crafting handmade mustard from scratch is as easy as turning on your blender. You’ll learn about different types of mustard seed, unique ingredient additions such as Guinness Stout, liqueurs, orange flower water, coffee or fresh citrus zest. You’ll have an entire flavor bar™ of spices, sweeteners and herbs to pick from as you create your own signature mustard blend.
