Students will be taking a field trip to the Lyons Farmette to learn about Aran’s philosophy when it comes to food and prop styling, as well as spend time cooking and baking. We will learn to develop a recipe for an editorial story, how to shop for the freshest ingredients, plan props to tell the story, style food for the camera and have time dedicated to cook and bake some of Aran’s favorite recipes. We will plan a meal and work in groups to create a delicious farm to table luncheon.

Aran grew up in the Basque Country in Northern Spain in a family of professional pastry chefs and cooks. Her love of food began in her maternal grandparents’ pastry shop and in the fields of her paternal grandparents’ farm. She studied business and economics but soon realized that she belonged in the kitchen. She enrolled in culinary school and began working at the Ritz-Carlton where she honed her love for pastry.
In 2010, after a bout of debilitating health issues, she was diagnosed with gluten intolerance and began living gluten-free.
Her first book “Small Plates and Sweet Treats: My Family’s Journey to Gluten-Free Cooking” (Little, Brown & Co) due to be released in October 2012. Her work has been featured in the New York Times, Everyday Food, Whole Living, Coastal Living, In Style, CNN, Saveur, Miami Herald, Living Without, Gwyneth Paltrow’s GOOP, ELLE Sweden and more.
She is the mother of a 6-year-old boy and a 2-year-old girl and works out of her South Florida home studio. She continues to be inspired by nature and what seasons have to offer.
