Join us for this three-session series and learn to make a variety of delicious artisan breads. The focus here is on selecting the right flour, the role of ingredients, and the mastery of simple techniques to ensure beautiful loaves every time – including how to determine when you’ve kneaded enough and how to tell when the bread is “done”. If you have never made bread, or haven’t had much luck with your bread baking, this class will change all that.
Tuition includes loaves to take home, a light lunch and beverages, and all the recipes and handouts.
