I swear I'm not a shill for The Skillery. Yeah, I know I just wrote about them a couple of weeks ago, but they keep coming out with fun food-related classes that I think lots of Bitesters might be interested in. And to make it even more convenient, they've scheduled eight classes for one day, Saturday Oct. 20.

The Skillery EXPO will be held at the Emma offices at 9 Lea Ave., the renovated site of the old trolley barns overlooking the Cumberland River. This pop-up workshop series will feature Nashville artisans, entrepreneurs and experts leading short one-hour workshops. Another benefit is that these classes will be really inexpensive, only $10 apiece for the three foodie classes.

The sessions that might be of particular interest to Bites readers are:

An Introduction to Specialty Coffee with Sean Stewart of Beve Mobile Coffee at 9 a.m.

Delicious Lighting with Kyle Dreier, at 10 a.m.

An Introduction to Backyard Chickens with Jesse Alvey at noon

I can't think of a better way to kick off a day of learning than with some delicious coffee, and I know plenty of food bloggers (present company definitely included) who could use some help with their food photography. Backyard chickens are still a hot topic, and I imagine some folks who have jumped into the coop loop lately probably have questions that need answers.

The non-food classes will cover such interesting topics as container gardening, juggling and bicycle maintenance, so even if you're not a foodie/foodist there may be something to interest you.

You can register for the classes at www.theskillery.com. Carve out some time Oct. 20 for a little back-to-school fun!
