Artist Michael O’Malley will teach amateur breadmakers the art of baking on the grill outside the Machine Project gallery. Inside, Pop Soda’s Jimmy Fusil conducts an aerobics class/buttermaking workshop, shaking jars of fresh cream until it magically transforms into butter!
Pop Soda’s Mike Wait churns fitness tunes and jock jams, including the single “Eat Your Fat,” recorded expressly for the event. Participants will learn about the chemistry of butter and the physics of bread, and maybe even get a good workout, only to finish by enjoying fresh butter on warm bread. While Aerobic Butter’s goal is to spread the physical delight of artisan practices, Anaerobic Bread aims to recreate the social/communal center of the village: the community oven.
While the bread-baking will be ongoing, participants in the Aerobic Butter class can sign up for a $10 fee.
Shout outs to to Straus Creamery for providing the whipping cream, and Cookbook for facilitating the donation delivery.
