    Pi Day —which can be found in nearly all areas of mathematics and physics—is  known as a mathematical constant, meaning however big or small the circle is, its value will always be the same—roughly 3.14159.

    This class offers an easy pie dough technique, which can be used for sweet or savory hand pies. Pi Day is a yearly celebration of 3.14 or March 14. These little pies are sized for 2 people to share and are quick to create. This class is appropriate for young bakers; less experienced might want an adult to assist. (Thank you to Anne Willhoit for the recipe.)

    Please take 11 minutes before class to watch this video on an ingenious method for making pie crust.

    The Shibaguyz LOVE Old Fashioned donuts. They are borderline obsessed with them!  Who wants to take the time to put on shoes, drive to the closest donut shop, order and drive home? In that amount of time you can make your own tasty treats and get the benefits of making them just the way you want. AND they are still warm… AND they are still crunchy on the outside while remaining soft and tender on the inside. 

    Join us as the Shibaguyz show you just how easy it is to make Old Fashioned donuts at home. Once you try these fresh and hot you’ll think twice about that trip for “slightly ok” donuts from the corner shop.

    This is a live, virtual hands-on cooking class from the comfort of your own kitchen. The Shibaguyz will make cooking fun, interactive, as well as hands on. Follow along, ask questions, interact with others just like you would if you were in the BARN Kitchen.

    Leavening breads using a sourdough culture is a time-honored tradition. In this multi-session course we will start with how to make and take care of your own starter, and end by producing a Rustic Whole Grain Sourdough Boule. Along the way, discussions on best flours to use, understanding gluten, and the nutritional benefits of whole grains and sourdough will add context. 

    The third of three sessions will be a half-day affair, with breaks (please note that it starts at a different time than the first two sessions), as we step-by-step our way to a finished boule. Best to have a scale, a cast iron pot with lid, and a banneton (basket) for good outcomes. A shopping list, equipment and other optional tools will be in your registration confirmation email.

    The only problem with taking this course: you will never want to go back to store-bought bread again!

Each session will allow students to grow and develop skills to be used the next day as well as explore culinary flavors to share with the entire family. 

    Participants will need to bring their own cast iron grill pan that has been seasoned and ready for use. Some grilling will also be done outside on BARN’s gas grill.      

    Day  1 - Who doesn’t love a good taco?  Taking advantage of the bountiful produce and seafood in our hood, participants will start the week off learning about grilling fish and produce. 

    Day 2 - Mishkaki are meat skewers sold on the streets of Kenya and Tanzania. Participants will spend the time learning the secrets of marinating and grilling; all the while chopping, dicing and julianning their way through a history lesson of Indian flavors in Africa.

    Day 3 - Participants will get another take on chicken barbeque. Piri piri is a spicy tangy dish with Portugese roots in southern Africa.  Like masalas and curries, families guard their recipes. Participants will work with chili peppers and other ingredients to create a paste for roasting chicken.  

    Day 4 - Beef Bulgogi is a family favorite in our  household.  Working with different ingredients, participants will learn more grilling techniques as well as practicing knife skills to produce a hearty meal - promising to be a delicious and well earned end to grilling around the world.

    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.

    There 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. 

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