Saturday’s workshops started at 10AM, with freshly brewed coffee from Ritual Coffee, and a discussion with Thomas Kriese of The Urban Chicken Network. After our conversation about backyard chickens, we moved into a workshop on the basics of lamp wiring, lead by self-taught lamp maker David Hard. Following David, Pastoral Plate joined us to give a demonstration on how to cut a whole chicken into 8 pieces, then how to carve a roast chicken. We sampled roast chicken and hot chicken stock as Jonathan Lewis explained the process of getting the most nutrition and meals out of a whole chicken.
In the afternoon, we were joined by Sharon and Alisha Ardiana of Ragazza Pizzeria, to learn how to make mozzarella. Sharon surprised everyone by bringing supplies for everyone to pull their own mozzarella, and by the end of the workshop we had enough mozzarella for a feast, plus some to take home. Our final workshop of the evening was with Tammy Tan of Spice Hound, who offered a tasting and conversation on the history and variety of artisan salts.
