    Cooking Class: The Spice Kitchen

    Location

    Description

    Cooking Class: The Spice Kitchen 

    We are pleased to announce a partnership with Milk Street beginning September 2018. This is a demonstration-based iteration of The Spice Kitchen: The Art of Cooking with Spices. 

    This class is among our very first offerings in partnership with Milk Street. That means that while you're learning from us, we're being training too! Milk Street's Cooking School Director will be present to help us, answer questions, and introduce some of Milk Street's exclusive products, available at Port Plums! Class begins at 6:30pm.

    If all home cooks take just one step to transform their cooking, it should be learning how to use spices. At Milk Street, we can’t cook without them anymore. Mashed potatoes are lackluster if we don’t finish them with caraway seeds bloomed in brown butter. Chicken soup falls flat without the Somali spice blend berbere stirred into the broth. Cake is a one-note confection if we don’t soak it in a bay infused syrup or stir ample spicy-sweet dried ginger into the batter. When you start cooking with spices, it’s like painting in full color after a lifetime of black, white and gray. 

    In this class you will learn why, how and when to toast and bloom spices; why we grind spices in some recipes and leave them whole in others; how to use savory spices to make better desserts; Milk Street's essential spice and spice blends; and buying and storing basics.

    Recipes in this class include:
    Cauliflower with Dukkah, an Egyptian spice and nut blend
    Somali Chicken Soup with Berbere
    Pinchos Morunos, spiced Basque pork tenderloin
    Turkish Red Lentil Soup 
    Honey Apricot Compote with Bay and Greek Yogurt

    Please note: This is not a hands-on class. In this class you will watch and interact as the demo leader prepares five ranging dishes using a variety of strategies and techniques. You will sample from generous tasting portions of the demonstrated dishes. 

    Tickets are $55 per guest.

    Angst: Raising Awareness Around Anxiety
    Join us for the first event of the school year - a free screening of the documentary film Angst: Raising Awareness Around Anxiety. Following the 56 minute film will be a discussion Q&A session led by school counselors and local mental health professionals.

    Producers Scilla Andreen and Karin Gornick have one goal: to start a global conversation and raise awareness around anxiety. Through candid interviews, they utilize the power of film to tell the stories of many kids and teens who discuss their anxiety and its impacts on their lives and relationships, as well as how they’ve found solutions and hope. The film also includes a special interview with Michael Phelps, a mental health advocate and one of the greatest athletes of all-time. In addition, the documentary provides discussions with mental health experts about the causes of anxiety and its sociological effects, along with the help, resources and tools available to address the condition. We will compliment this with local resources and a discussion following the film.

    Hosted by The Parenting Years Speaker Series, a collaboration between Newburyport Youth Services, River Valley Charter School Parent's Alliance, and the Newburyport PTO.

    A Festival of Short Plays by Contemporary American Playwrights

    Writers Workshop. In response to our call for submissions, we received 317 scripts from 36 states, 5 Canadian provinces, and 5 other countries. After five rounds of blind readings, the list was trimmed down to 24 semi-finalists. All twenty-four plays were given a cold read in front of our panel of twelve judges. By July, we had chosen our 8 short plays to be presented this fall at our black box theater. The featured playwrights are from California, Maryland, Massachusetts, and New York. Each of these playwrights has an impressive résumé and each has earned artistic distinction either with awards, production credits, and/or being featured in distinguished publications.

    Eight TASN directors stepped up to mount the plays. We held open auditions for actors and met or were reacquainted with 29 wonderfully talented actors. We are excited to be presenting these well-crafted plays as they represent points of view and sensitivities at many levels of the human experience. According to Executive Director, Marc Clopton, "This is a great opportunity to match up our local team with writers from across the country to present a truly remarkable festival of plays." The themes run from a jarring and hilarious send up of Tennessee Williams "Glass Menagerie," to a compelling conversation about violence and recovery, and into the uncharted emotional territory of adoption - just to highlight a few.
