Institute for Domestic Techology

Aug 31, 2011

Hometown Pasadena colleague Joseph Shuldiner (art director of Celebrating with Julienne and EAT: Los Angeles as well as an accomplished cook) has launched the Institute of Domestic Technology, a lighthearted yet dead-serious organization for food lovers who want to go beyond shopping farmers’ markets and eating at the latest hot restaurant.

In August he held his first event, Foodcrafting 101, a day-long workshop built around four one-hour, hands-on workshops in making bread, cheese, fruit preserves and mustard, and it sold out immediately—so on September 10th, it’s back for another go-round. As before, the day will take place in Altadena at the historic Zane Grey Estate. Shuldiner himself takes mustard duty; other instructors are Erik Knutzen, co-author of The Urban Homestead; Stephen Rudicel, owner of the Press Restaurant in Claremont and a goat farmer and cheesemaker in Altadena; and Karen Klemens, owner of Mother Moo Creamery in Sierra Madre. The cost is $195 for the day, which includes lunch and all ingredients. To register, click here.
