Gather is a place where you are heard and supported. Through cooking and baking, we’ll convene and explore cooking without recipes and using what is in your pantry - developing a sense of calm, confidence, and creativity in the kitchen. Whether you’re experienced in culinary arts or completely new to the journey, each week we will meet to celebrate each other in a respectful and fun space.
While food is our launching point, this series is so much more - this is about nourishing yourself and one another, connecting not only with ourselves but also with our food. Each monthly series will take on a unique tone, guided by the collective needs of the group. Monthly access is 155. for a four-week series and includes all live 90 minute events and recipes. Gather limited to 10 participants. Gather resumes in September.
A week-by-week look at this series.
In this first lesson, we will get to know one another, discuss culinary techniques, as well as what and how you usually cook. Followed by a demonstration of knife skills and culinary techniques.
We are often intimidated by what we don’t immediately know or understand. But curiosity about others helps us build intellectual and emotional capacity and is the first step to connecting with others outside our own culture. For week two we will spend this time digging deeper into other cultures to discover and celebrate the culinary traditions that came before us.
This is a time to peel back our layers, share with one another and further build trust in yourself and your cooking. Bring a recipe forth that you have struggled with or felt intimated by and we will make it work or we will work with ingredients you have in your home - no recipe required.
Sometimes we get too caught up in the idea that there’s a right and wrong way to do things, or our thinking gets really rigid. For our last week, we’ll explore cooking and baking without recipes or rules, allowing you to create with what you have while continuing to learn technique and knife skills. Learn to trust yourself and your instincts and try something different in a supportive format. We’ll end the series grounded, confident, and creatively invigorated.
