Calling all novice grillers, local beer enthusiasts, and serious picnic seekers! Saturday, May 17, 2014 Skill Exchange is bringing together a group of our favorite local experts for a crash course in essential summer skills. We’re offering a line up of workshops to help you learn a few new skills to help improve your kitchen tool know-how, spice up your summer picnic prowess and lets be honest, your whole life.
If you’ve never shucked an oyster, need some expert advice on how to buy, clean and cook sustainable local seafood, or you want to learn the difference between a boning knife and a fillet knife, this event was made for you! Edible San Francisco Magazine Editor Bruce Cole will teach us how to grill, demonstrating some simple grilling basics , including how to get the right heat for your meal. Siren Fish Co founder Anna Larsen will give a talk and demonstration focusing on buying, preparing and preserving local seafood. Fermenters Club will demonstrate the joys, history and benefits of preparing kimchi at home, while Town Cutler will give a hands on lesson in knife safety and home sharpening. The day of learning, tasting and making will conclude with a grilled meal, served family style while we enjoy beer pairings and conversation with HenHouse Brewing Company.
We’ve got a few other surprises up our sleeves, so be sure to watch the schedule in the coming days as we continue to add workshops and contributors! Sponsored in part by HenHouse Brewing Company and hosted by StoreFrontLab.
One ticket will grant you access to everything- every teacher, every workshop, and the not-to-be-missed feast. We’ve put together 6 incredible workshops plus lunch for $100. We’ll put our new skills into practice as we share a meal of grilled fish and and seasonal vegetables, with beer pairings provided by HenHouse Brewing Company.
