I just discovered the Institute of Domestic Technology, here in Southern California.
From their website: “Established in 2011 the Institute’s mission is to reignite the passion of how we make food, the ingredients we source and the farms on which they originate. Through classes, workshops, tours and events the Institute will be a resource to discover lost arts, invent new ones and explore the domestic technologies you already know even further.”
They have pickling, bread, cheese, and other classes – yum! Definitely going to be signing up for one of those!
