We humbly submit that few combinations in life are so delicious, so superb, so deeply satisfying as that of pretzels and beer. And The Learning Kitchen, a laid-back cooking workshop, understands. Grab a fellow pretzel + beer lover and prepare to experience the holy matrimony of soft pretzels and craft beer in Sweet Auburn Curb Market’s most communal environs.
Wine and cheese? Caviar and champagne? Pshaw—those pairings have nothing on the inimitable combo of pretzels and beer. Any beer-lover worth their salt knows the limitless joys to be found in a supplementing a mug of cold ale with those warm, savory, deeply satisfying carbs. (No, really: science says so!
) And at The Learning Kitchen, a neighborhood place where cooking workshops and good times go hand-in-hand, this perfect pairing is respected and revered. The pretzels: soft, doughy and warm, and especially delicious. And of the beer? All craft made by our local fav Second Self Beer Company, and plenty for all. Indeed, friends, this workshop is the very definition of "eat, drink and be merry." Gotta love a kitchen that has its priorities straight.
Call us grouchy Luddites, but in this day and age, a place meant for nothing but pure, good ol'-fashioned conversation and camaraderie ain't easy to come by. A place that's warm, cozy and free from pretentiousness, where good conversation flows like honey and where neighbors come together over chef-driven, made-specifically-to-go-with-your-pantry kitchen workshops. But that, friends, is precisely what The Learning Kitchen is all about. In their own words, “Let’s make German-style soft pretzels! And slather them with some homemade Dijon mustard!
It’s easier than you think. Come join our class and learn the simple secrets to making those crusty-on-the-outside and soft-and-flavorful-on-the-inside pretzels. Better than the ones you buy in the mall for sure! You’ll make up four big beautiful pretzels, then learn the easy steps to making your own mustard — and about recipes for other mustards like Bourbon Brown Sugar Mustard and Spicy Beer Mustard. And finally, have the fun of snacking on those just made warm pretzels with mustard accompanied by a glass of pretzel-friendly beer while we talk about the many other kinds of toppings and mustards you can make in your own kitchen. Plus their will extras to take home along with a jar of freshly-made mustard, and recipes and full instructions.”
