Build Your Own Outdoor Smoker with Lauren Giunta - $35

In this class we'll discuss and explore preserving with smoke with Chef Lauren Giunta. Topics covered include how to build a simple outdoor smoking oven with affordable materials (bricks, cinder blocks, flower pots); the relationship between salting, smoking and drying; as well as important, interesting and obscure smoked foods from various cultures. We'll smoke a few things in a DIY oven together, and of course, eat the fruits of our labor.

Lauren Giunta cooks at Camino Restaurant in Oakland, and has a fondness and curiosity for burning cured plants.

Our classes are outdoors, so please dress appropriately. In the event of rain, classes are subject to cancellation.
