Butter Classes in Chicago
Hey y'all! Have you ever wondered how to make butter? Have you ever wanted to impress a crowd of city folk by whipping out a jar of fresh, homemade butter, making them think you spent the whole day hunching over a churn? Then this is the class for you!
My class will show two modern ways of making butter with FRESH LOCAL cream, and provide tips of the trade for making sure your butter is of the highest quality and has the longest shelf life. You will make, bottle, mix in any add-ins your little heart desires, and take home your own butter to enjoy at home. You'll also get to take home the buttermilk leftover from butter-making and my buttermilk pancake recipe, so breakfast at your place will be extra delish!
Anyone can make butter (kids included!), so come one, come all!!
So, let's recap:
1. Learn to make butter.
2. Take that butter home (class takeaways include reusable Ball jars, labels, butter, and buttermilk!)
3. Eat homemade, fresh butter!
4. Repeat (in your own home, since you'll know how!)
**I will also be teaching how to make beurre noisette AND clarified butter!
BYOB is certainly accepted :o)
Yes! I will provide the cream, Ball jars for taking home your butter and buttermilk, labels, recipe cards, and some fun add-ins for your butter (think honey butter and herb butter)!
Devin did a fantastic job explaining how to source ingredients and make butter, but also knows so much of the science behind the process. She is warm and friendly and answers all questions. Great class!
Devin was the perfect teacher--friendly, engaging, and knowledgeable. I'll definitely take more classes with her in the future. I am confident that I can replicate what we learned in the class to make more butter and buttermilk at home. I loved the hands-on aspect of this class and I think it was a good value for the price.
I had an excellent time learning the basics of throwing an English tea party. Devin was engaging and professional. All aspects of the class were hands on and the recipes she chose were actually doable. I will be signing up for future classes with Devin again.
Devin was fantastic! She's knowledgable, energetic, and resourceful. Our class flew by! We learned a great deal about the history and culture of tea in Britain and she shared great personal anecdotes that enriched our experience. Fun class to take with your friends!
Devin was the coordinator for Green City Market's childrens' programme, Club Sprouts from 2012 - 2013, and taught children of all ages (as well as their parents!) to make fresh, homemade, and locally sourced butter. She volunteers at Green City Market for several local farmers vending and marketing, and has a passion for local food, cooking, baking, and of course... making butter!
