We are thrilled to be collaborating with local author,  blogger and educator Alana Chernila on this series of kitchen workshops.  In her book, The Homemade Pantry: 101 foods you can stop buying and start making, Alana shared her do it yourself simple recipe making style with the world.  In these classes, you will get a personal look at her wonderfully unique recipes that can teach you to view your kitchen and what you can do with it in a different light.

“Alana Chernila’s food is the sort of honest, natural, and down-to-earth cooking that I crave. On the top of my can’t-wait-to-make list are the toaster pastries, which I’m sure my own daughter will adore, and the cucumber pickles, which are right up my DIY-alley. Plus, Alana’s stories are engaging and fun to read. But what I really love about this book is Alana’s passionate approach to homemade kitchen staples, which I hope will get people to rethink the questionable goods that we all keep in our pantries. We can do better, and she shows us how. I would feel confident cooking any of her recipes for my friends and family, and that means a lot.”
