In a week, I'm San Francisco Bound to teach classes at 18 Reasons and a workshop at The San Francisco Cooking School. Much to my humility, I've also been invited to partake in the La Cocina 10th Anniversary Gala Dinner honoring the incomparable Diana Kennedy.
In June, I'll head to New York and teach some classes at Haven's Kitchen and some exciting chit chat with the badass that is Alex Raij has been happening about doing a dinner together while I'm in town.
I'm beside myself.
In my last baking class here in Nashville, a student asked if there were going to be more baking programs available this summer and, at the time, my answer was no. Finding a kitchen space to work out of and hauling bags of flour and butter around from location to location is, to say the least, cumbersome enough that I've been keeping these classes to a minimum.
While I feel pretty excited about an opportunity that has presented itself to me in regard to a consistent place to hold these classes, I am too superstitious to talk about it. BUT, what I can say is that it has encouraged me to do another round of classes in May, between my SF and NYC excursions, just to keep the good feelings coming.
Join us, if you can. And if May is not looking good for you, stay tuned Nashville, I'll have more coming to you soon hopefully for the end of the Summer season. **I'm planning some week long, sequential baking workshops and would love input on what kind of classes and availability (do Tuesday mornings work for some? Are week nights best?) most of you all have. I'm hoping that this allows for more advanced workshop material, more detailed courses (like layer cakes!) and more ability to grow with these lessons. Please email me directly at: firstname.lastname@example.org and let me know your thoughts!**
