When: Sat., Sept. 12, 10 a.m.-12 p.m. 2015
Summer may be winding down, but one of the great gifts of living in the Bay Area is the fact that outdoor cooking is possible almost all year long. The same principle applies for those who practice the time-honored art of smoking various meats and vegetables. If you take that craft seriously — or would like to start — you might consider signing up for this Saturday’s workshop on how to build an outdoor smoker using affordable, everyday materials. Hosted by Preserved, a backyard popup shed located behind the home décor shop Neighbor (4200 Piedmont Ave., Oakland), and taught by Camino cook Lauren Giunta, the $35 class will conclude the way any DIY food class worth its salt should end: participants will get to eat the assorted smoked foods they’ve helped prepare. Tickets are available via EventBrite.com.
