Four students are standing over a hot stove in the creamery of the Institute of Domestic Technology on a late-October Sunday at the Zane Grey Estate in Altadena.

The raw coffee beans turn golden, then brown, then start to expand and crackle. A moment or two later, as the beans sizzle: "You hear that?

And will the meat cases be full or empty? This is not the time to proselytize, girls. Shuldiner is the founder of the Institute of Domestic Technology, a kind of new-age, back-to-the-roots home ec department.
