This month we are offering the following bread classes:

Artisan Bread Baking – Saturday, September 15th  1:00-3:00 p.m.

Artisan breads are a European tradition – something radically different than a loaf of grocery store sandwich bread.  These breads feature a small amount of yeast that is allowed to multiply slowly, fermenting a loaf with a unique taste and texture.  Baked in a very hot oven, these breads are crusty on the outside and chewy on the inside, and when made with whole grain flours, these breads have flavor that is unsurpassed!  This class is most suited to the adult student that has some bread baking experience.  The cost is $20 per person or $40 per family.

 

Sourdough Bread Baking – Saturday, September 22nd at 1:00 – 3:30 p.m.

Sourdough breads are enjoying a resurgence in popular culture both because of their wonderful flavor and their high nutritional value.  Using a sourdough starter that traveled the Oregon Trail, we will make classic sourdough loaves that are crusty on the outside and chewy on the inside, and oh so very good!  You have to have patience to make sourdough bread, but it is so worth the wait!!  This bread class is most suitable for students with some bread baking experience. The cost is $20 per person or $40 per family.

 

Basic Whole Grain Bread Baking – Tuesday, September 25th at 10:00 a.m. – 12:00 noon

This class is suitable for anyone who is interested in learning to bake home-made whole grain yeast breads.  We will start with high quality ingredients including freshly milled flour and walk through the entire process of mixing, kneading, shaping, rising and baking loaves of delicious honey-wheat bread.  We will use some of the same dough to make some specialty items like cinnamon rolls or kolaches.  This is a very hands on class and is suitable for adults and children who are accompanied by an adult.  The cost is $20 per person or $40 per family.
