The second of four classes in the Sitka Kitch‘s Cooking From Scratch lesson series — Baking Whole-Grain Bread — was held on Monday, Nov. 2, at the Sitka Kitch. In this class, students learned how to use the Tassajara bread technique to prepare their dough for baking at home.
The class series is coordinated by Lisa Sadleir-Hart, a registered dietitian and certified health educator. She will teach three of the four classes (the first class on Oct. 19 was Beans 101), with Bridget Kauffman teaching the other. All classes will take place at the Sitka Kitch community rental commercial kitchen (link opens Facebook page) located at the First Presbyterian Church, 505 Sawmill Creek Road. The future classes include:
- Gluten-free holiday baking, 6 p.m. on Monday, Nov. 16, taught by Bridget Kauffman — Learn how to bake a variety of holiday treats that are gluten-free.
- Making yogurt from low-fat powdered milk, 6:30 p.m. on Monday, Dec. 7, taught by Lisa Sadleir-Hart— Learn how to make your own yogurt at home.
The Cooking from Scratch series goal is to teach basic cooking skills using high-quality ingredients, and to help Sitkans take back their kitchens and reduce their food budgets.
