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)!
This class was wonderful. Devin is incredibly knowledgeable about butter and her warm and energetic personality made this class informative and a ton of fun. I would definitely take another class from Devin!
Great class! Devin is a butter master and will teach you so much! I never thought that homemade butter could taste so good. This is a great skill to learn and a fun class to take.
I signed up on a whim on the morning of the class and am glad I did. Devin is an amazing teacher. In addition to teaching us 3 techniques to make butter, she talked about the history of butter making & the reality of processed vs fresh butter/milk/cream. She also went the extra step to allow the class to stay late to ask questions and showed us how to make a brown butter sauce (beurre noisette). I've signed up for another class with her (Afternoon Tea) & am looking forward to it! PS - if you've never tasted fresh butter, you're in for a treat.
This was such a fun class, I learned not only about butter making but some uses for the butter and a ton about organics. I would definitely take another of her classes
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!
