Please note that we will add more classes throughout the year. If you would like, you can purchase a gift card to be applied to a future class.
The purpose of the focus group is to discuss issues and share personal experiences within the food industry and ideate possible program ideas to co-create an equitable food industry. Our goal is to work with and not for the people most affected.
If you currently or have recently worked in the food industry, we want to hear from you!
All participants will receive a $25 gift card to Kuluntu Bakery as a thank you for your time, energy and thoughts.
A Bit of Background
Over the past year, we’ve engaged in a listening survey to hear from food workers and stakeholders about their experiences in the food industry. From there, we identified three major themes – hierarchy, patriarchy, and access. In the focus group, we will be discussing these themes in more detail and how they relate to your experience.
February 12, 3-4:30 pm on Zoom
We invite you to Ubuntu Supper Club, a special South African dining and cultural evening in our home. Experience the rich and diverse culture through an exploration of South African food, history and what it means to practice Ubuntu – I am because you are.
This will be an intimate dinner party featuring three courses, each from a different South African ethnic group, and wine pairings. Because we are not a restaurant, we do not charge as a traditional restaurant would. Our suggested donation is $100, which includes a three-course meal and wine pairings.
Step into our cottage bakery and join Stephanie, the baker of Kuluntu Bakery, for an afternoon of sourdough baking. We will teach the basics of sourdough bread baking using just three ingredients: flour, water and salt.
During this class, you will learn:
How to make your own sourdough starter, the lifeblood of naturally leavened breads
The entire sourdough bread making process from autolyse, mixing, bulk fermentation, shaping, proofing and baking
How to decoratively score your bread
We will be hosting an Indaba, or community meeting, to bring together food industry professionals, community members and customers to engage in our community-centric program development process. Our goal is to work with our community to co-develop programming which will result in a food system that dismantles patriarchy and builds stronger communities. More details to come!
