Baking class at the St. Pete Free Skool

Posted by Arielle Stevenson on Wed, Jan 8, 2014 at 8:32 AM


"How to eat your feelings," could be one of the greatest cooking class titles of all time. Learn all about baking and "therapeutic self-care," at the St. Pete Free Skool Wednesday, January 8 at 8 p.m.

Hosted at the Warehouse Arts Districts' Fuzz Factory, instructor Lauren Bone asks that participants bring an oven-safe coffee mug and recipe for a baking zine (homemade magazine) in the works.

"I'm trying to teach simple baking projects that people can use at home as a means of self-care," Bone told CL. "I like baking because it's a creative outlet, but a the same time it's very simple. Unlike other art forms, at the end you're producing something that you and your friends can eat and enjoy, not sit back and critique. I also find the messiness that comes with baking and cooking to be very therapeutic."

The St. Pete Free Skool is a community project that aims to teach self-reliance, personal development, and critical consciousness in the local community. And, in this case, you get some cake too.

Wednesday, January 8, FREE. 8 p.m., 2732 Sixth Ave. S., St. Petersburg.

When I was broke as hell, learning how to cook was the only way I survived. It's so much cheaper and healthier to bake your own bread and cook your own meals from scratch. Plus the mindful, zen-like experience of it is therapeutic so you cook, and then eat, away your depression from being so damn poor. I never ate better than when I made everything I ate from scratch. Even when it was plain rice with frozen veggies and tobasco drenched scrambled eggs -- that was cheaper and infinitely healthier than cup'o'noodles.
