Kitchen Arts

Celebrating Food and Community

Food brings us together. It nourishes us in ordinary and extraordinary ways through aromas and tastes that speak to our childhood, festive occasions, and shared experiences throughout our lives.

Kitchen Arts helps you explore and create your own foodways with a fully equipped commercial kitchen and a large and active community of bakers, chefs, and home cooks eager to share their knowledge.

Using dry heat, hot stones, or even ashes to transform batters and doughs into warm, crusty deliciousness is called baking. It is both an art and a science, which can make it intimidating at first. But once you learn some basic practices, you’ll be ready to explore the vast repertoire of baked goods, from pies and pastries to bagels, breads (yeasted and sourdough), and even pretzels. In addition to expert instructors, BARN’s convection ovens and rainbow array of mixers are at hand to make things easier.

Preparing food with heat or fire, by fermenting, drying, or freezing, is a journey that lasts a lifetime. The Kitchen Arts Studio offers classes and equipment that can open a new world of culinary inspiration. You’ll find classes on everything from making traditional foods like Challah bread and Bolognese to plant-based Japanese food, and seasonal favorites such as Bûche de Noël. And our youth classes are inspiring the next generation of cooks.
