    Photo of cast iron skillet with market fresh vegiesHere in the Pacific Northwest, we have it easy when it comes to finding fresh produce. Local farmers bring in their wares daily to various weekly farmers markets throughout the area with some of these markets running year around. Most of us only have to drive a few blocks to pick up fresh winter greens in January, fragrant strawberries in July, and juicy tomatoes in September. The food is there waiting for us to come and get it. 

    This recipe came about from one of the Shibaguyz’s weekly visits to the West Seattle Farmers Market. After spending the better part of the morning shopping and visiting their farmer friends they would arrive at home around lunchtime ready to eat anything in sight. Luckily their bags held everything needed for a delicious, healthy(ish) quick lunch that was ready about the same time the groceries were put 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 delicious 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 to 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 one. 

    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 Studio in accordance with our restaurant permit standards.

    Image Credit: Cynthia LairLearn how to make these delicious seasonal dishes that together create a well-balanced family meal. Bonus techniques learned include: roasting peppers and removing kernels from fresh corn.

    In a time when families are dealing with two careers, longer working hours, and numerous extracurricular activities, the fate of the shared, home cooked, family meal seems in jeopardy. Juggling commitments to make room for shared family meals has rewards!  We know that eating meals together increases the enjoyment of the meal, solidifies family bonds, and encourages communication about the day’s activities. If we are willing to make the extra effort required to share common meals, our lives are richer; solidarity is built.

    Gather these late summer ingredients, and join Cynthia to prepare Fresh Corn Chowder with Roasted Poblano and Fall Greens Vegetarian Caesar. Together they create a simple, balanced meal, full of flavor and ready to share!

    Vegan burger & sides -Nancy Travis InstructorThere is a growing global consensus that eating a vegan diet is not only good for your health, but good for the animals and a way to help combat climate change. 

    Join us for a week of exploring vegan recipes and cooking techniques as well as discussions about all things vegan in this fun and tasty class! 

    Though the instructors will be driving the theme for each class, students will be helping make the decisions about ingredients in their creations. 

    Day 1
    We start this series with an overview of the week ahead then dive into vegan cheese making!  We will make a firmer, grate-able cheese, a melt-able softer cheese for pizza, and a cheese sauce with a few flavor variations. After which we’ll make a lunch of loaded nachos topped with our vegan queso cheese sauce and fresh made salsa. Delicious!   

    Day 2
    Let’s explore the colorful art of veggie sushi and spring roll creation!  We will explore different ingredients and rolling techniques then finish by making a dipping sauce to enjoy.  

    Day 3
    Who doesn’t love a good burger? Yay! It’s custom veggie burger day!  Each student will create a burger recipe according to your taste preferences. Students will eat, enjoy, and have some to take home and share.     

    Day 4
    Saving the best for last!  We conclude our class sessions with a day of desserts. Students create a delicious (dare we say “healthy”) vegan “candy” bar, along with other vegan “goodies” that students help choose.   

    During class, as time allows and if there’s interest, we will have discussions on a variety of vegan topics.

    This class is perfect if you are vegan, vegetarian or just curious how to make tasty food without dairy, eggs or meat.

    Picture of jarred canned tomatoesThis is a live, virtual hands-on cooking class from the comfort of your own kitchen.  The Shibaguyz will make cooking fun and interactive. Follow along, ask questions, learn with others just like you would if you were in the BARN Kitchen.   

    Coming home on one of Seattle’s cold, gray, wet days to the smell of fresh tomatoes stewing in a pot with herbs, spices, and a little onion and garlic is always a special treat. In the Shibaguyz’s house, this tasty indulgence is something they enjoy all year, and so can you! 

    Whether you grow your own tomatoes or just found a great deal on a case of deep red beauties at the farmer’s market, all it takes is a few hours to preserve any extra red beauties for future meals.

    Although there are many canning options available, for ease and no fail results we’re focusing on to preserve your tomatoes with simple water bath canning.
