Special Events

BAKE! brings you rare learning opportunities with guest instructors from around the country offering a variety of talks, demonstrations and hands-on classes. Don't miss out!

Special Event with Shelly Westerhausen Worcel, author of "Every Season is Soup Season" (2023)

Join us for a special cooking demonstration with cookbook author, vegetarian food blogger, and food photographer, Shelly Westerhausen Worcel, in celebration of her newest cookbook, Every Season is Soup Season (Chronicle Books: 2023). 

Please note that this is not a hands-on class but a demonstration, so sit back, relax, and enjoy as Shelly demonstrates four of her favorite soup and salad recipes from the new book, including Carrot–Orange–Ginger Soup with Green Tahini, with a variation, Savory Sesame–Carrot Oatmeal; Roasted Root Vegetable & Dumpling Soup; and Winter Farro Salad with Agrodolce Sauce

We’ll have tastings of Shelly’s prepared soup and salad dishes throughout the evening, followed by a book signing, as Every Season is Soup Season will be available for purchase. 

You'll leave the BAKE! demonstration with not only satisfied tastebuds, but also Shelly’s four  cookbook recipes to make at home and, hopefully, a signed cookbook.
