A reminder to members of City Daily Photo: the theme for May 1st is Laugh.
I ascended to the second floor of the Learning Centre during my visit, and took a photograph towards the Meadowview Barn, which I'll show you in tomorrow's post.
This floor has much of its space taken up with two large kitchens for demonstrations. On this day, one of those kitchens was used by a staffer to talk about eggs. Other displays in this room I'll be holding over until next Easter, as they are appropriate for that.
The other large kitchen space had a baking demonstration going on. There were ovens baking what was being produced over at the demonstration area- chocolate and lemon cakes. The smell of fresh baking filled this area.
A view out the windows looked towards the Dairy Barn. If you note the small building at the lower right, that's the Soil Lab, which I'll also feature tomorrow.
This view gives you a sense of the size of this space. Two fully stocked kitchens are over on the opposite wall, with the demonstration happening to my left. Cake was being sliced up by the woman at the table.
Here we have the demonstration area itself. The lead baker was talking as she worked. The mirror above the table gave the audience a chance to see her work from a different angle.
Fresh cake was just being sliced. It tasted good. I would have saved some for you, really I would... but, well... long story short, I can't be trusted around chocolate anything.
Display panels in the halls examined the importance of bees.
