    BARN Bazaar Goes Online

    Buy direct from the maker at this annual celebration of the creativity that happens at BARN. From jewelry to wood arts, basketry to weaving, you will find an unmatched selection of original hand-crafted items. The Bazaar opens Friday, November 20 at 10:00 AM at Bazaar.BainbridgeBARN.org .

    This is the first time that the Bazaar has been held online – usually it is at BARN on the Saturday before Thanksgiving. This year you will have until December 15 to make your selections.

    Remember that most of these items are one-of-a-kind and will be removed from the site once they have been purchased.

    All the items offered at the Bazaar were made by BARN members. Each participating member has their own “store” within the Bazaar site. All proceeds, less taxes and administrative costs, go directly to the artisans.

    All purchases will be picked up at BARN via curbside pickup. Pick one of the available times at least 4 days after your transaction, drive in front of the BARN facility, call the number out front and we’ll bring your purchase out to your car.

    “Buche de Noel” or “Yule Log” has its origins in European Christmas traditions. Made of sponge cake shaped into a Swiss Roll, frosted and decorated to resemble a miniature log.  It is a technical recipe with a challenging practice of rolling a sponge, but once you figure out the art to a sponge and Swiss roll, you will be happy to share the beauty of this tradition.  This class will be taught in two segments. On the first day we will bake the sponge, make the filling and roll it into a roulade. During the second part of this class we will ganache the cake and decorate it with meringue mushrooms, marzipan leaves and winterberries. You may also add fresh berries, greenery and other small holiday decorations to this festive treat.

    This is a live, hands-on cooking class held in your kitchen via Zoom.  This class is meant to be as interactive as it would be in the BARN Kitchen. Participants will learn how to bake, fill, and roll a sponge cake, as well as how to make and pipe a crisp french meringue.

      Instructor Bio:

      Hi! I’m Sandra Mehta and I’ve been a home cook for 30+ years! My interest in cooking sparked off as a teenager when I was assigned the job of sous chef in my family’s home kitchens. I didn’t know it at the time but I was getting a rigorous and advanced education of what it means to prepare food, combine complex flavors, detect for ‘doneness’, blend spices, and offer it all up in tantalizing and mouth-watering presentations! I’m excited to share my experience, skills, knowledge, heritage, and passion for cooking and entertaining with you in a series of BARN cooking classes!

      Join plant-based Chef Nancy Travis as she guides you through a 21-day plant-based challenge that is perfect for someone who is interested in losing weight, wanting support in controlling diabetes as well as supporting a healthy blood pressure and heart. 

      This is weight loss without restricting “carbs” or counting calories. The key to healthy weight loss and maintaining a healthy weight is learning to choose the right foods that are satisfying and health promoting.  This program based on clinical research and created by The Physicians’ Committee for Responsible Medicine, will help you lose weight and stay healthy, all while bolstering clinical benefits such as lowering cholesterol, blood pressure, gaining better diabetes control as well as improving energy and mood. 

      Each class in the series will include an educational video, class discussion and support as well as a cooking demonstration of 3 recipes. Lots of tips and tricks, recipe handouts, as well as additional resources will be shared. You will also have access to Nancy via email to answer any questions between sessions.

      We will focus on getting ready to start a low-fat, plant-based diet. We will guide you through what the diet entails, what groceries to purchase and what a healthy menu will look like.  

      Session 2: Let’s Go! 
      After a week of preparations and today’s lesson, you will have all the tools you need to start a low-fat, plant-based diet for the next three weeks. We will go around the "zoom room" and see how everyone did in their preparatory week of food shopping and meal planning. 

      Session 3: Getting into Gear
      After the first week of the challenge we will discuss how things went; share successes and get support for things that were challenging.  You will gain some new insights from other class participants and may chose to share some of your own. 

      Session 4: Breaking the Food Seduction
      This class will go over why specific foods high fat foods like cheese seem addictive and why foods like broccoli are not. Today’s lesson will address what we can do to break those addictions.

      Session 5: Keys for Natural Appetite Control
      This final class you will have been following a plant-based diet for 21 days. We will discuss next steps along with learning about appetite control

You will taste chocolate made with cacao from different parts of the world while learning about cacao farming and artisan chocolate production.

      Registration for this class will close 9 days prior to your class in order to receive your chocolate tasting package. Chocolate tasting packets are not intended to share. If you would like more than one, please register a second or third  person. Lauren also recommends you taste the chocolate with a clean palate - yes, chocolate for dinner.  If this is your first chocolate-tasting class, it's better you do it without the influence of other flavors.
