One of favorite places at Lightning in a Bottle is the Learning Kitchen, like literally I don’t know how all of their classes aren’t packed to the brim. People, they TEACH OUT ABOUT FOOD and usually end up FEEDING YOU in the process!!

Juniors Pickles at Lightning in a Bottle

This photos above are from one of my favorites last year presented by Juniors Pickles, and I’m super excited to see he is back again!

There’s always some fun drinking ones, but this is always a good place to go and escape the heat. There’s a full list of classes, so this is another experiential part of LiB that I suggest reading up on beforehand, so that you can add them to your app schedule.

My friends and I often read through all of the offerings in the LiB app on the drive in since we have a captive audience then. I like to do my own list beforehand, then read again together with everyone!

You can read more about each class on the LiB site, but here is also the full list, with which ones sound interesting to me!

  • Flavors of the Forest: Cooking with Wild Food
  • Tantalizing Turkish Taste Ritual

Learning Kitchen Food Experiences at Lightning in a Bottle 2019

Since we’re on the topic of food, I think now is also a good time to mention all of the food vendors coming to Lightning in a Bottle. LiB has a mix of food experiences, including some sit down dining ones. If I get a press pass this year I want to purchase one of the sit down dining ones, it’s just too hard to afford both right now, so fingers crossed!

I’m always super impressed by the food at LiB so while I pack a lot to eat at camp, I splurge on one meal a day from a vendor to experience something delicious!
