Backyard Kimchi Workshop

Workshop date(s) & time(s): 
Monday, August 19, 2013 - 18:30 - 19:30
We be making some sour goodness for our bellies, korean style.

My name is Ryan, and if you want to make some kimchi with me, come to my backyard. You bring a jar, I'll acquire the ingredients. We can look at my pretty backyard garden and discuss permaculture or fermentation or both while the veggies soften. Then we'll pack the jars with all the goodness, yum yum yum, and in a few days to a week, we'll have kimchi.

Sound good?

Just come roll by my house on the evening of August 19th, and if all goes well, we'll make us enough kimchi to nourish a horse.

peace and love,

ryan

Facilitator's experience: 
I have fermented beer, mead, kombucha, sauerkraut, kimchi, ginger beer, and sourdough bread, which were all great, and then some tempeh which was pretty bad :)

Arts Writing: How to Write a Review

More and more people are writing about arts events—plays, movies, art shows, books—on their blogs and in news publications like the Twin Cities Daily Planet. But how to do it well? What do readers need to know? How much should be fact, and how much should be opinion? What's a writer's relationship to the artist, and to the audience? Daily Planet arts editor Jay Gabler has published hundreds of reviews and features; in this class, he'll take you through the review-writing process from choosing a publication to attending a show and finding readers for your review. This class is free, but enrollment is limited; to register, e-mail [email protected]

Gourmet Vegetarian: The Diet of Sustainability

UPDATE: The Farm of Minnesota, a CSA farm run by Dan and Donna Moe, will be the source for all of the vegetables used in class. I will be exchanging time on the farm for weekly supplies. To make suggestions for produce, visit the blog called "Source Found." Beginning on September 14th, a Wednesday, the Seward Co-Op will provide a full kitchen for our use! Until then, however, a location is yet to be found.

There are a couple of preconceived notions in the world of "Haute Cuisine." One: that good food is reserved for those who can pay for it, and two: that vegetarian meals are a joke. Well, it's my purpose as a chef to turn those preconceived notions inside out, because the reality is that the best cuisine is that which uses vegetables, as flavor ingredients as well as for substance, in the most effective and dynamic manner.

As an avid vegetarian myself,as well as a cook, I am creating this course to show people the true diversity of edible plant life in this world, and how to turn this plethora of delicious ingredients into something creative, dynamic and flavorful as well as satisfying and nutritious. Most of all though, I am creating this class to encourage the adoption of the most sustainable, healthy, and palatable diet known to man: ovo-lacto vegetarianism. We will, however, cover many aspects of the vegan diet as well as raw vegan dishes. Bottom line, this class will teach people how to create food that is as organic as it gets, prepared from scratch, and "good" in two ways. "Good" in the sense of extremely tasty, as well as "Good" in the sense of good for the environment, diversity, and life on this planet.
