Images from Learnapalooza
A fun time was had by all at Learnapalooza this past Saturday. For an interview with co-founder Maggie Schutz, click here to read a story posted on Our Urban Times.
Here are a few pics that I took as well as a short video of executive chef Dudley Nieto of La Fonda Del Gusto making tilapia, which was sauteed along with tomatoes, garlic, raisins, salt and a few other spices and herbs that made it incredibly delicious when he passed lots of samples around to the 15 or so students, after having cranked at two other free cooking classes earlier in the day-- in a word: Wow! Unfortunately I misplaced the recipe, but if anyone wants it, feel free to email Dudley directly at firstname.lastname@example.org with a subject header of "Tilapia"
Also pictured is a student attempting to self hypnotize himself with a bit of help from Kerry Mackenzie of Hypnosis Works Chicago in the Wicker Park Lutheran Church's beautiful and ethereal sanctuary, a few students on the steps of the church who were eager to pop in at the next yoga class, and Sarah Press, the festival's other cofounder, with her sister.
