Fwd: May Term

May Term

It has been a while since I posted, and I hope to catch up. However, I had to get this out there. This May Term, Alex Foster and I taught a class on cooking and consumption. Mostly we talked about fuel sources and how we as a society use them. The gist of it is we built solar ovens, a pit bbq and the final project this cob oven. Also pictured are the first loaves of bread we made. The structure will eventually be covered in adobe and decorated! Thanks to the class for their hard work and for the gifts we will continue to receive from this oven, which Nicole Wolf Camplin gave a tradition Jewish blessing!

Indian delight

I made tikka masala with lamb shanks from the farm. I used garlic fun the farm as well. On the side I made saag with kale harvested this morning by mark.  What a great meal!
