It's still early to be thinking about the holidays, but I have a few classes coming up that are not only super fun and useful, but can help you stock up on those last minute gifts that everyone loves: soaps and candles! Learn to make incredible organic soaps, and delicious-smelling natural candles that you can use yourself or stock up on for those last minute gifts. 
There is space tomorrow (Sunday Oct 16th, 1-3pm) in my natural soy candle class, where we'll be making pumpkin spice candles, and  then on Sunday Nov 13th, it's the organic soap making class from 1-3pm . Click here to register.

In bread news, I just came back from the First Annual Grain Conference at The Gourmandise School in Santa Monica. I connected with some local farmers so that I can bring more LOCALLY GROWN grains to The King's Roost.  I am very excited about supporting local farmers and bringing back some heritage grains we can all bake with!

In the meantime, I have added my next 100% whole wheat bread class which will be on Sunday Nov 20th from 1-4pm. If you don't know what it's about, I teach you the old fashioned way to make delicious, 100% organic, freshly-milled,  long-ferment, sourdough bread with nothing but wheat berries and salt water. It's about the healthiest bread you can make. This class is aimed at the home baker that doesn't have a lot of time or money to invest in baking bread.  It's simpler, cheaper, and much healthier than you might think!  The class registration page is up on my site  and spots are already selling. Click here to sign up online. This usually sells out pretty quicklyi, so if you can't get in, call the store at 323-426-9769 to get on the waitlist. If the waitlist gets long enough, I will add another class.

It's that time of year again! The kids are getting ready to head back to school, why not take a few courses yourself?  

I've just added a whole bunch of classes. In addition to  the usual ones-- like handmade soap, soy candles, sauerkraut, pickling and  kombucha-- I've added  2  brand new courses  that you've been asking for:
First, there's  Sprouted Grain Bread.  Experienced whole meal  bread bakers who  want to go to the next level will love  this class. If you haven't yet taken my 100%  Whole Wheat Bread class, I highly recommend taking that one as an introduction before trying your hand at sprouted grains. I am teaching that intro class two times  before the  sprouted grain class happens on Sunday, Sept 18th.


Second, there's my new Vegan Yogurt Making class. I've been experimenting with a few recipes to develop a yummy dairy-free yogurt. We'll try a couple in class, and we'll even make some home made muesli using fresh oats you'll roll in class.
