KITCHEN POETS: Baking with Nikki Patin

  • ArtHouse: A Social Kitchen 411 East 5th Avenue Gary, IN, 46402 United States (map)

KITCHEN POETS: Baking with Nikki Patin will focus on the art of making the perfect scone, as well as the parallels between poetry and baking. Nikki will guide participants in how to make the perfect fruit and nut scone, from beginning to end. She’ll also discuss how baking and writing poetry use some of the same techniques: the right mix of ingredients (words), heat (inspiration) and time (rhyme/rhythm). The attendees will learn, as they bake their scones, that recipes, like poems, can forever be perfected and refined and are never really finished, but merely abandoned in favor of new explorations. The goal is for everyone to walk away with warm scones in their bellies and a poem in their hearts.
