Dehydration for Everyone

Discover the range of techniques available for dehydrating. Sign up at TwiceasTasty.com.
Size: 4 to 10 people
Time: 2-1/2 hours

Dried foods aren’t just for backpackers and bikepackers: They have a place in your kitchen, your child’s lunchbox, and even your ski jacket pocket. Dehydration provides nutritional, flavor, and storage benefits and both preserves and enhances a surprising range of foods. In this workshop, I’ll introduce you to the range of techniques available for dehydrating. You’ll learn how commonly purchased dried foods can be easily and cheaply dehydrated at home, and I’ll discuss some of my favorite, and likely unexpected, home-dried foods.

Groovy Granola: Baked and Dehydrated

Homemade granolas can be good for you and good for your budget. Sign up at TwiceasTasty.com.
Size: 4 to 10 people
Time: 2-1/2 hours

Although we think of them as healthy, commercially packaged granolas can be junk food in disguise: high in sugar, salt, and dollars. But homemade granolas can be good for you and good for your budget. They’re easily made, endlessly adaptable, and seriously delicious. In this workshop, we’ll explore the differences between dehydrated and baked granolas and learn the basic ratios that will let you personalize your granola recipe. I’ll provide a range of ingredients so that you can make your own batch during the workshop, and you’ll sample your creations before taking them home for tomorrow’s breakfast.

Playing with Pesto: Classic Basil and Variations

Size: 4 to 10 people
Time: 2-1/2 hours

Most people think “basil” and “sauce” when they hear “pesto,” but basil is just one ingredient option and sauce is just one use. This workshop teaches you ratios that let you harvest from your herb garden (or buy from your farmer) and fill your freezer throughout the season with a collection of pesto bases that can be used on everything from pasta to pizza and in everything from sauces to soups. This workshop welcomes up to 10 people but still lets you try your hand at original pesto flavors. We’ll taste your creations before you take them and the techniques you learned home to enjoy.

Super Smoothies: Starting Your Day Right

 Smoothies can be quick, easy, healthy, and filling meals in a cup—if you keep the right ingredients on hand. Sign up at TwiceasTasty.com.
Size: 8 to 12 people
Time: 2 hours

Smoothies can be quick, easy, healthy, and filling meals in a cup—if you keep the right ingredients on hand. In this introductory workshop, you’ll learn about some ingredients that work well in smoothies and how to make the most of local fruits and vegetables in and out of season. You’ll also learn to plan ahead so that you can make a delicious smoothie in seconds. I’ll teach you some basic ratios, and we’ll play with a variety of ingredients so that you can create (and taste-test) your own combinations.
This is an introductory workshop; it isn’t as immersive as the full workshops, but it’s available at discounted per-person rate and is a great opportunity to get introduced to the Twice as Tasty experience.
