    Picture of Plant based food prep-copyright N. Travis

    A whole food plant-based diet is a proven health winner!  Sometimes the barrier for people to adopt this way of eating can be figuring out how to prepare simple yet delicious, healthy meals without spending the day in the kitchen. Nancy will teach you that meal prep, kitchen organization, and careful shopping is the answer. There is no “one way for everyone” approach as each household has its own requirements for space, preparation time, and the amount of food needed. Join plant-based personal chef Nancy Travis as she gives you her best tips for creating an individualized plan for quick, simple, every day, whole food plant-based meals that work for your family's needs.

    Please Note:  Foods will be determined by Nancy the day of the second class (depending what she needs to prep for her family) but recipes and resources list will be emailed after the class to all who attend. 

    Session 1:  In this first session (no cooking) you’ll go through Nancy’s kitchen (virtually) where she will show you her fridge and kitchen storage and discuss ways to set up your own kitchen for success. This includes information about kitchen essentials like appliances, equipment, pantry staples, containers, and tips for saving time.  Nancy also offers ideas for food storage for your veggies, grains, and beans, with an emphasis on keeping things fresh and ready to go!  Nancy will go over different ways to prep meals depending on your family size and available time, and, how to think about creating meals in the most healthful way. Conversation will also include eating for weight loss and weight maintenance (usually fairly easy once on a plant-based diet!).  

    Session 2:  In the second session we will be cooking and prepping demonstration where Nancy will put together a variety of foods to be used for meals or meal components.  You’ll gain ideas for easy ways to put together prepped foods to create delicious meals for your family.  Learn healthy cooking techniques such as no oil sautéing, roasting, and a demonstration of both.  Nancy also teaches you the benefits of and about instant pot cooking and air frying.  

    During class, there will be time for questions and discussion about meal prep as well as how to maintain a healthy whole food plant-based diet.

    Koji is the mold Aspergillus Oryzae and is responsible for soy sauce, rice wine, miso and so many historically important pantry staples from all over Asia.

    It was popularized in the west as part of the modern fermentation renaissance of the past few decades and especially with the release of books like the Noma Guide to Fermentation and The Art of Fermentation. There are many facets of the koji world to explore in this class and beyond.

    We’ll talk about the vast history of this and other molds beginning in ancient China and all of the techniques and products created as they moved across Asia. There's also the modern western koji movement which sees chefs like Renee Redzeppi of Noma applying these time-tested, tradition-drenched techniques to their own local foods and to entirely new applications. And then there's the sustainability perspective which demonstrates this wonderful mold's ability to make good use of what might otherwise be considered waste.

    Discover the art and science with Nicholas through starting your own koji fermentation that you’ll take home to your own kitchen. You’ll also be tasting a variety of products made from koji so you can be inspired to continue with this fermentation process.

    Instructor Bio:

    I’m Nicholas Ronyai, a chef and fermentation enthusiast!  I’ve been cooking my entire life but started making a career out of it after leaving university to travel with work. I’ve cooked in restaurants around the country from Cape Cod, Massachusetts to Orcas Island and now I find myself at the company which caters to the offices of Facebook around Seattle.

    A few years into my career I began experimenting with the newest big thing in the culinary world, fermentation. It’s funny to refer to this as a modern trend because these techniques have their roots as integral food preservation methods for every culture throughout history.  It’s really only since the dawn of industry and refrigeration that we’ve lost these roots. I’ve fermented just about everything I can think of, spent a lot of time trying to understand and practice different techniques from many different cultures, building on what I learn and sharing it with other enthusiasts from all over the world. 

    Since attending the MAD Academy programs on environment and sustainability in the hospitality industry in Copenhagen, my focus has shifted to applying these techniques to food waste and to educate people on how they can make delicious food out of things they might normally throw away.

    Let’s dive into the world of cake baking and decorating! We will explore how to bake, torte, fill, ice, stack, and decorate a two-tiered cake and best of all you will walk home with your very own masterpiece. 

    Day 1 - it’s flower decorating time. We will learn how to make gum paste and figure out how to make a giant gum paste hydrangea.  

    Day 2 - It’s all about the cake. We will bake a deliciously moist chocolate cake from scratch, wrap and chill it for the next day. Our gum paste will be cured by then and we will make green leaves (cut from our self-made stencils), many sugar daffodils, and more loose hydrangea petals out of gum paste. To give these blooms life we will color each petal individually. These will be set aside to dry. 

    Day 3 - Buttercream! Participants will learn how to make Swiss meringue buttercream to torte, fill, and ice their chocolate cakes. Christine will share her technique for getting straight and level cake sides. It promises to be a messy and delicious day.  

    Day 4 -  On the final day, participants will bring everything together as well as learn more piping techniques to pipe ruffles - horizontally, vertically, diagonally, or make swirls. The cakes will then be stacked and decorated with all the sugar flowers made on day 1. Participants will take home a masterpiece to share with family or friends.  

    Participants will also learn the importance of cleanliness in the kitchen. All participants will be responsible for assisting in washing up and cleaning the BARN Kitchen Arts Studio in accordance with our restaurant permit standards.

    Ever wondered how these gravity-defying cakes actually work? Well, then this is the class for you! Christine Chapman, owner of Crumbs Cakery, will spill the beans and teach you all of her cake magic tricks.

    Together we will build a reusable 3D armature using ¼” aluminum pipes, wooden boards, wrenches, drills, and glue guns. On the second day, we continue our adventure by stacking our cake and sculpting it into an alien life form. Day 3 will be the day our alien is getting his limbs and eyeballs, and finally, we will use food-grade petal dusts combined with lemon extract to color our masterpiece. 

    This class is perfect for the detail-oriented caker. We will spend considerable time sculpting and transforming the cake into an art piece

    Participants will also learn the importance of cleanliness in the kitchen.  All participants will be responsible for assisting in washing up and cleaning The BARN Kitchen Studio in accordance with our restaurant permit standards.

    If you love to cook and enjoy a challenge, this week will keep you on your toes! Each day, participants will be given challenges that will test their culinary skills and quick thinking.  Participants will get an allotted time to create while having access to the well-equipped BARN kitchen and pantry. Participants can work alone or with a partner. Guest judges will be on hand to provide assistance and of course feedback on the final products.  We will have a basket of ingredients for you to choose from to within our 2.5 hour time limit.  Come ready to cook and work your magic!  

    Day 1 - Spring Rolls - We are testing your knife skills and looking for perfect diverse cuts and sauce of your choosing. They can be fresh or fried, vegetarian, meat or seafood. Be ready to pivot because your competitor took all the ingredients you need!  

    Day 2 - Ramen - Now you know the BARN kitchen and tools - what will fill your bowl of deliciousness? Fresh noodles? Homemade broth? Pickles? 

    Day 3 - Tacos - Homemade tortillas and/or salsas… chicken, beef or vegetarian? Use one of our instapots to make a guisado or beans. 

    Day 4 - Dessert: What can you make in 2.5  hours? With only 3 ovens, you will need to watch your time and work around other participants.

    Participants will also learn the importance of cleanliness in the kitchen.  All participants will be responsible for assisting in washing up and cleaning the BARN Kitchen Arts Studio in accordance with our restaurant permit standards.

    Do you dream of earning money as an artist? Make that dream a reality by learning how to market your artwork to reach a bigger audience! No matter what your medium is, you can use tips and tricks from the marketing trade to make your art shine on a bigger stage. From jewelry-makers to woodworkers, illustrators and digital artists, textile crafters, and mixed media creators, you can sell your craft by getting in front of the right people — with the right price and the right message!

    In this four-session class, you’ll learn:

    • How to create a brand with your own style
    • How to price and position your art for the right audience
    • How to photograph and/or present your art so that it sells
    • How to create an Etsy page
    • How to get people to see your Etsy page
    • How to switch things up if your art is not selling
    • How to officially start a business (and pay taxes) if you start making serious money
    • To get you up and running in just four days, there will be some fun homework with this class.

    Note: This class is tailored to students 12-18 who have an established art or craft they feel confident about. Participants should bring their own tablet or smartphone and will be required to download a subscription-based design software called Canva (which has a limited free version available). Participants will also be asked to use existing social media and email accounts to promote their materials, though this is optional if they don’t have them or don’t want to use them for promotional purposes. Finally, they will also be creating an Etsy account, which will require a credit card in order to go live (this is part of their class homework).
