    Hi guys.

    Okay, well, I really love cooking and in the midst of graduate school, it has seriously become one of my only salvation’s of the last year. I seriously consider a vital part of my creativity and art practice.

    So, I LOVE FOOD!!

    Alright, so being half Italian, I have that ethnic culture of food in my genetics, I feel. I was thinking I might demonstrate how to cook a Risotto. It’s a staple of Northern Italy, (where my family is from), it’s versatile, and it’s easy to screw up. So, I have some tips on how to not mess it up, (i.e. overcook or undercook) and also, I think it’s one of those meals that can be really comforting and down-home in a way, but also is a very classy dish found in restaurant. And did I mention, it’s delicious?

    I also might hand out a worksheet of Italian cooking tips/ cooking beliefs. For example, in Italy, of course, they are known for making beautiful pasta, but also how to cook it perfectly. One simple tip is salt the water after it comes to a boil and use a lot of salt. Italians believe that your pasta water should be as salty as the Mediterranean. Which is just such a beautiful idea of life and culture.

    I think we’ve established I’ll be doing at least one balance/boarding workshop.

    To decide where I should take these topics, though, I’d like feedback from the class to figure out general interests

    Thanks for your help.

    Roxanna, I love risotto. YES!
    and David, I think everyone wants to strengthen their core 🙂

    For food, I can contribute a Korean dish. I don’t get the chance to cook very often, but this is definitely an opportunity to play around in the kitchen a bit~ I’m also pretty interested in learning how to garden! I’ll continue brainstorming…

    We should also think about how to organize the night we present our workshop.

    Hey guys,
    It’s Miguel. I’d like to connect graffiti to ‘body, mind, & spirit’ by standing up and doing large scale drawing exercises. Then, I’d like to focus on ‘compassion’ by viewing some clips from a documentary and having a discussion. What do you think? Are there any ways my ideas can relate to yours?
