The fourth of four classes in the Sitka Kitch‘s Cooking From Scratch lesson series — Making Yogurt From Low-Fat Powdered Milk — was held on Monday, Dec. 7, at the Sitka Kitch community rental commercial kitchen.
Students learned the basics of making yogurt from instructor Lisa Sadleir-Hart, and each student took home a quart jar of yogurt (that needed to culture overnight) and the supplies to make a second batch. The class focussed on powdered milk due to the cost savings, though regular milk can be used.
This was the fourth and final class in a fall series of Cooking From Scratch classes. Lisa Sadleir-Hart, a registered dietitian and certified health educator, coordinated the class series and also taught the first two classes —Beans 101 and Baking Whole-Grain Bread. Bridget Kauffman taught the third class — Gluten-Free Holiday Baking.
All classes took place at the Sitka Kitch community rental commercial kitchen (link opens Facebook page) located at the First Presbyterian Church, 505 Sawmill Creek Road. Watch for updates about upcoming classes this winter and spring, including a Culinary Skills series of classes in March geared toward giving prospective restaurant and catering employees the skills they need to get jobs in the industry.
There also will be more Cooking From Scratch classes. 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.
