We had loads of fun on Saturday in The Counter Kitchen for the second demo, I-Scream, with Mike Lee. He took us step-by-step through the ingredients in Bryer’s ice cream. When someone asked what’s up with the polysorbate80, Mike simply responded: “The ingredients in Bryer’s ice cream exist to make the shareholders happy.” Ah, huh? He then took us through an easy recipe for making ice cream at home that was all about making our tummies happy. And he finished things off with a popcorn ice cream (!) using the magic of liquid nitrogen.

We just wrapped up the Devotion to Lotion workshop at Eyebeam with Rachel Winard of Soapwalla. It was awesome! She took apart the 23 ingredients in Johnson & Johnson baby lotion and rebuilt the pink potion way better and with way less ingredients. It’s so good you can eat it. More info will be up on our new The Counter Kitchen site (www.thecounterkitchen.org) within a week or so. Next weekend (Sat March 19 at 12:00) we are hitting the ice cream.

The Counter Kitchen hosts two new workshops in March which promise to be fun, tasty, informative and messy. In the first one on March 12 we will reverse engineer (think: break down and rebuild) J&J Baby Lotion with the help of Soapwalla chef, Rachel Winard. The second one on March 19 will be all about ice cream with the maestro supper club chef, Mike Lee.

Each workshop costs $10 per person, which includes admission, tastes, take-aways, and recipes.

My husband, Ricardo Miranda, has a recent remix of an older project that just launched as part of Stories in Reserve. Take a listen.

http://temporarytraveloffice.net/stories/Dentimundo.html

About: This walking tour of Tijuana finds one example of transnational commerce in a rather unexpected place–a dentist’s chair. This 20 min. audio track features narration by Ricardo Miranda Zúñiga and interviews with dentists from the Mexican border towns of El Progresso, Ojinaga, Juarez, Nogales, Mexicali and Tijuana. The track ends with a song written by Ricardo with music composed by Alejandro Espino Aldana and performed by Alejandro Espino Aldana, Benjamin Rivera Cruz, Mary-Ann Murnane & Giovanni Jesus Borquez Carvajal.

Jenna is cooking pop-tarts! I am so excited to taste them _tomorrow_. This recipe was inspired by the pesticides, petroleum and a lot of ??? in Kellog’s Strawberry Pop-Tarts®. Deconstruction by Hunter high, redesigned by TCK and next eating by you (if you visit our kitchen tomorrow at 1pm). More info about TCK pop-tarts, with video-assisted cooking techniques, on our new website thecounterkitchen.org. When? Soon.
