Saturday January 31st from 3-5pm
The King's Roost is hosting an informal gathering for the LA Bread Baker's  Meetup group. Whether you are an experienced baker or just getting started, come and meet other neighborhood bakers over champagne and snacks. There will be running demonstrations of home milling, and  I may even bake a few things for all of us to sample.  LABB is a great resource for the home baker. Check out the group at (or click here). You'll be up to date on all things bread: bulk grain and flour purchases, bread classes, clay ovens, heirloom grain varieties, pizza parties and more. Hope to see you there. 
In this hands-on class, we will explore working with chiles. The class will begin with a quick overview of the ever expanding list of available varieties. We’ll sample a few different hot sauces and discuss how they differ , Then we'll get to work making three recipes (with lots of room for personalization.)

You will make and take home:
  1. Spicy Pepper Mash,
  2. Louisiana Style Fermented Red Sauce
  3. Red Rooster Lacto-Fermented Hot Sauce
Instructor: Master Fermenter Rachael Narins from Chicks With Knives
Cost: $50 per person
Location: King's Roost Patio

Sunday January 11th 2-4pm at The King's Roost
Master Food Preserver Rachael Narins is coming to the King's Roost to teach a 2-hour workshop on Sauerkraut and Kimchi! You will learn about the health benefits of these wonderful foods, get a basic recipe for each and go over troubleshooting. The class will include samples and you will go home with a jar of delicious sauerkraut and kimchi. This is a hands-on workshop, so wear closed-toed shoes and bring a sturdy kitchen knife if you have one (I'll have some extras on hand, too).

The class normally costs $50, but we are offering this first class at a discounted rate of $40 per person.

To Register:
Until we decide on an online booking system, please call the King's Roost at 323-741-8144 with a credit card  to reserve your spot. Payment won't be due until the day of the workshop in case it rains. If you reserve a spot and don't show, you may be charged for the class. I hope to see you there!
