Scenes from the Sitka Kitch’s Winter Baking Series class Bagels With Robin Sherman

Students learned how to make bagels during the second class of the Sitka Kitch‘s Winter Baking Series, Bagels With Robin Sherman, on Tuesday, Jan. 28, at the Sitka Kitch rental commercial kitchen.

Robin grew up in New York City, so she enjoys a good bagel. Students learned how to make the dough, which includes barley malt syrup, flour, salt, and water. They also learned how to shape the bagels, how to boil them to set them, and then how to bake them.

The next class in the Winter Baking Series is a second Sourdough Bread With Carolyn Rice class, which takes place from 6-8:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 25, at the Sitka Kitch (note the earlier starting time than our usual evening classes). This class costs $40 ($30 for Sitka Food Co-op members who are current on their dues), and the registration deadline is 11:30 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 22. Carolyn taught another class on baking sourdough bread on Jan. 14 to open the Winter Baking Series, and there was enough popular demand for her to teach a second class. More classes in the series will be announced as their information is finalized.

Also, the Sitka Kitch is hosting a vegetarian Indian food buffet fundraiser and silent auction from 5:30-8 p.m. on Wednesday, March 18, at Beak Restaurant. Doors open at 5:30 p.m., and the silent auction closes at 7:30 p.m. Seating is limited for this event, so register early. The cost is $40, with all proceeds going to the Sitka Kitch to promote new classes.
