Temakizushi Workshop: Sushi-Making Party/Family Style Dinner

with Tomie Sasaki-Hesselink

Temakizushi (hand-rolled sushi) is very popular and easy to prepare. Temakizushi is a special cone-shaped sushi surrounded by a sheet of nori (dried seaweed), and with various neta (seafood, vegetable, egg omelette, etc) in the middle.

In this workshop, your instructor, Tomie Sasaki-Hesselink, will share her knowledge of sushi, and provide a lot of hands-on fun learning how to roll your own sushi cones. Then plenty of time to relax, gather 'round the big table, and enjoy temakizushi as it is meant to be enjoyed - with a family-style dining experience.

Herbal Soaps from Scratch

with Ann Staudt of Siberian Soap Co.

Explore the art and science of making handcrafted soap from scratch with Ann Staudt of Siberian Soap Co.. Using the centuries-old cold-process soapmaking technique, students will combine plant-based oils and lye to create soaps that are mild, moisturizing, and eco-friendly. This workshop is very hands-on, with each participant making and taking home 1 pound (~4-5 full size bars) of their own custom batch of soap.

artisan pizza party

with vicky dunn of c’est la v bakery

Pizza – not only is it almost everybody’s favorite food, it’s also one of the most fun foods to make together! In this workshop, Vicky Dunn of C’est la V Bakery, will teach you how to make perfect pizza dough from scratch, and how to cook an artisan-style pizza in a home oven. Vicky will share tips on how to use the dough, as well as how to freeze dough for later use. Each guest will receive a pizza crust recipe, and an unbaked crust to enjoy at home. Of course it wouldn’t be a pizza party without actually eating pizza, so you will have some hands-on fun making a few pizzas together, which you will then enjoy family-style, around family-sized table.
