Mexican Tamales with Estela Caldeza

Mexican native and Nibble Star Cooking Instructor, Estela Calzada, is back to teach us the art of the ultimate Mexican comfort food - Tamales!

In this bi-lingual class, Estela will demonstrate the proper technique to wrap your homemade tamales in her native Spanish language —as Catherine Aiello translates into English. Estela is the real deal: she used to cook at Somerville’s Tu y Yo restaurant and several of her recipes still grace the menu there. Come prepared to get up to your elbows in fresh Masa. We'll be making two types of tamales: a pollo con salsa verde (chicken with a green salsa) and a tamale dulce con piña (sweet tamale with pinapple). While our tamales cook, Estela will demonstrate how to make a fresh salad out of cactus, and a rich chocolate beverage made out of corn.

Bring an appetite, and apron, and a container to take home a few of your husk-wrapped goodies!

Large Dog Socialization

Advanced socialization classes on Saturdays that are open to all breeds and dogs of all temperaments.  This is a great opportunity to socialize your dog in a controlled environment and be able to witness the beauty of canine socialization.  Often, especially in an urban environment, socialization experiences can go awry, whether it's two dogs on a leash that react to each other, or a dog park where a dog that hasn't been screened is allowed to socialize with  other dogs before it is in a proper balanced state of mind.  In our classes we start on leash and gradually allow the dogs off-leash as an appropriate rhythm and energy is established in the room.  If you have a dog that is leash reactive, that you feel plays too rough in the dog park, or is nervous and needs someone to advocate for them in a group setting, then this is definitely the class for you!  That being said, we believe all dogs and owners can benefit from these experiences. The socialization lasts for 30 minutes and is $10 per class.  They are drop in classes, but we do request that you make a reservation here if you plan on attending.  Please email me at if you have any questions.  Dogs that I have never met will need to be evaluated prior to joining the class.  New dogs of all temperaments welcome after evaluation. $10 per class. Start time listed as 11 AM, but will actually begin promptly at 11:15. For safety reasons, no one will be admitted after 11:15, so please be on time.  We will send out a confirmation email on Friday afternoon with rules and guidlines for the class.  We look forward to seeing you there!

Improv Jones Boston was founded in February 2006 by Christa Crewdson.

Now eight years on, Jones is made up of a mix of new and founding members. Jones spent six years performing at Watertown's Arsenal Center for the Arts before moving to Improv Boston's Studio 40 for the last two years.

Jamal Thorne: Artist's Talk

Jamal Thorne is a drawing virtuoso. His large-scale images explore what's on and below the surface. He'll present an artist's talk in conjunction with his month-long Eliot School solo faculty exhibition, "Dualities & Binaries," at UForge Gallery.

He says:

“People and objects constantly oscillate between a number of identities. The changes are largely based on situational elements. For example, we are expected to exhibit certain behavioral patterns in the company of our parents that are not exactly consistent with those we exhibit in the atmosphere of a tavern. The same can be said about inanimate objects. Automobiles are an incredibly convenient mode of transportation until operated by a driver who is under the influence of alcohol. It is both interesting and scary to think about the identity of an object or person dictated by external factors. The idea speaks to the complicated relationships between people, objects and their external environment. In my work, I attempt to explore visualization of an individual’s multiple identities and the different uses or identities attached to objects based on individual interaction.”

Jamal Thorne first learned basic drawing, painting and photography techniques through his experiences as a street artist in the Washington DC area, which he later honed under the tutelage of Guy Jones, Eric Briscoe, Kenneth Royster and others. In addition to the Eliot School, he teaches at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts Boston and at Northeastern University's College of Art, Media & Design. His Eliot School classes include Beginning Drawing and Drawing for Pleasure.

Authentic Leadership

To lead effectively, you must discover your Authentic Leadership style – the clear and unique expression of your leadership that enables others to trust and follow you. By being true to yourself, motivated by a higher purpose and not a narrow self-interest, you will be able to demonstrate high integrity and deliver results in a way that creates sustained value for your organization. In this workshop, we will use stories, exercises, and small group activities to explore your strengths, motivations and personal values to create an action plan to integrate into your leadership goals.

Here is what some prior participants are saying:

  • Authentic Leadership gave me insight into myself, how I operate and how I can utilize my strengths to be a better leader.
  • Authentic Leadership had tangible takeaways that I could then apply to my professional work and circumstances.
  • The Authentic Leadership forum really allowed me to think about where I am today and how to get to where I want to be tomorrow.

Our facilitator, John Haskell, is the vice president of talent development for the Authentic Leadership Institute (ALI), a leadership consulting firm committed to leaders and organizations discovering their deeper purpose and having the courage to live it. John has more than twenty five years of experience as an international executive in the organizational development area.  His work has extended from the manufacturing plant floor to executive boardrooms in the U.S., Canada, Europe, Asia Pacific, and South America.

Magic Malbec and Southern Stars (Class + Dinner)

Malbec was recently launched into stardom by the dry, sunny, high altitude vineyards of Argentina.  However, South America has a long tradition of wine that has been cultivated and shaped by many waves of European immigrants starting with the Spanish in the 1500s.  Wines from Argentina, Chile and even Uruguay are commanding an ever growing presence on our wine lists, retail shelves and palates.

Join us for a Malbec-centric wine and food tour of South America all within the four walls of the Boston Wine School!  Experience the culinary sights, smells and tastes of Malbec (and other neighbors' wines) via your wine glass and plate.  By the end of the evening, you will surely have some favorite go-to South American wines.

Here at the Boston Wine School, we are a 100% Wine Snob Free Zone.  We believe that learning about wine involves learning more about yourself.  Our goal is to help you understand and communicate what you are experiencing when you are enjoying a glass of wine. 

The evening begins with a 2 hour class covering the major wine styles and grape varieties of South America. Appetizers and an assortment of cheeses will be served during class to introduce some of the fundamentals of pairing wine and food.  Class is followed by a delicious South American dinner accompanied by white and red wines.

Brandeis' Boris' Kitchen will open for Dave and Ethan!

Best friends Dave Ahdoot and Ethan Fixell created an internet phenomenon by challenging pairs of women to double date them, and documenting the hilarious results for YouTubers everywhere. Hundreds of thousands of views -- and 200 dates -- later, their crash-course education has made them into bona fide dating experts who have mastered the arts of planning and budgeting the perfect evening, selecting the appropriate attire, avoiding awkward conversation, and of course, scoring a kiss at the end of the night. As their online videos continue to grow in popularity, Dave and Ethan host their own show at the People's Improv Theater in New York City, divulging valuable advice based on some of their best and worst dating experiences. They have also shared the stage with comics such as Jim Gaffigan, Jim Norton, Anthony Jeselnik, and Amy Schumer, at some of the most established comedy clubs and theaters New York has to offer, including Gotham Comedy, Comix, and the Upright Citizens Brigade Theater. Now, Dave and Ethan divulge valuable dating advice to college students across the nation through reenactments, monologues, interactive exercises, videos, and original songs. They have performed at hundreds of colleges and universities,and were most recently voted 2012's Best Comedy Performers in Campus Activities Magazine.

The Intimate Letters of Vittoria Colonna and Michelangelo
On Saturday, Jan. 10, the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum will hold the final lecture in a series of collection conversations to complement the “Donatello, Michelangelo, Cellini: Sculptors’ Drawings from Renaissance Italy” exhibition. This half-hour gallery discussion, led by Carmen Bambach and Ramie Targoff, will explore one of the works featured, the Pietà, a finely finished drawing Michelangelo gave Vittoria Colonna in 1540. Colonna, a 16th century Italian poet and noblewoman, was close friends with the Michelangelo with whom she regularly exchanged letters and poems. Carmen C. Bambach, a Michelangelo scholar, is curator of the department of drawings and prints at The Metropolitan Museum of Art. She received a PhD from Yale University, where she also earned her BA and MA degrees. Dr. Bambach was a John Simon Guggenheim fellow in 1996–1997 and the Craig Hugh Smyth Visiting Fellow at Villa I Tatti, the Harvard University Center for Italian Renaissance Studies, in 2009. She is also the author of Una eredità difficile: I disegni ed i manoscritti di Leonardo tra mito e documento (1999) and Drawing and Painting in the Italian Renaissance Workshop: Theory and Practice, 1300–1600 (1999). Bambach's work has been published in The Burlington Magazine, Apollo, and an important series of exhibition catalogues on Italian Renaissance drawings. Ramie Targoff, who is currently at work on a biography of Colonna, is a Professor of English at Brandeis University. She teaches and studies Renaissance literature, with an emphasis on the relationship between literature and religion. She has written books on the invention of common prayer and its influence on Renaissance devotional poetry; on the works of the poet and preacher John Donne; and multiple articles on Shakespeare and Renaissance poetry. Her latest book, Posthumous Love: Eros and the Afterlife in Renaissance England, was published in the spring of 2014. She is now working on a biography of the sixteenth-century Italian poet, Vittoria Colonna. Targoff received a B.A. from Yale University and a Ph.D. from the University of California, Berkeley. Join Targoff and Bambach to learn about this fascinating friendship between artist and patron on Saturday, Jan. 10, at 2:00 p.m. in the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum’s Calderwood Hall, located at 25 Evans Way, Boston, Mass. Tickets are required, which may be purchased in advance or at the door, and include Museum admission. Admission is $15 for adults; $12 for seniors, $5 for students with valid IDs; and free for members.
