In the Counter Kitchen (TCK) we will be turning things upside down from the inside-out. Science and marketing have made product labels nearly impossible to decode. Learn how to reverse engineer your favorite food, personal care and household products using TCK tools and measurement systems. We will simultaneously turn you into a translator, detective, chemist and cook. Stop by to take a whiff, stay a while to help us in the kitchen or bring a product for us to explore.

About the Demos: 

 

March 20, 2011

Yesterday Mike Lee of Studiofeast (previously) taught us how to build the perfect ice cream. I’ve never been to an event at The Counter Kitchen. I really enjoyed the format, particularly the emphasis on exploring industrially-processed foods in comparison to the craft of home-cooking.

Here Mike delves into the myriad ingredients of Breyer’s vanilla and explains what we should keep, replace with other ingredients, or (most likely) skip altogether. And he reveals the formula for fail-proof ice cream base: 66% milk, 12% heavy cream, 15% sugar, 7% egg yolk … and then of course flavor, which is entirely up to you.

3/12 from 2PM-4PM & 3/19 from 12-2PM
