Los Angeles has seen a surge of interest in food preservation techniques, from pickling and canning to liqueur making, fermentation, and cheesemaking. Thanks in large part to the leadership of Ernest Miller, chef of The Farmer’s Kitchen in Hollywood, the program has quickly become one of the most sought-after educational opportunities in southern California.
Applications are now being accepted for the Spring 2012 class, which begins on Tuesday, March 20, 2012 and will meet each week until June 5. Completed applications must be submitted by February 10, 2012, and both the application and additional information are available online.
