Artisanal Bread Workshop
October 6 @ 10:30 am - 2:30 pm$154
Artisanal European Breads
After years of study on French artisanal loaves, I am thrilled to take you on a deep dive into the wonders of freshly baked European bread. This small group class will learn all the necessary techniques that are tailored for the American home chef with no shortcuts on flavor and quality!
There is nothing like the wafting aroma of freshly-baked bread coming from the oven. Imagine yourself with the mastery to produce European-style, artisan loaves quickly and with ease in your own home! You can! I’ll show you how! Your family and friends will be so impressed!
Autolysis, poolish and the use of warm and cold fermentation will be taught in addition to skills like scoring and stenciling that make bountiful loaves oh so beautiful.
Each guest will prepare bread from start to finish and take home 2, loaves, a traditional baguette and a 500-gram Boule to be shared with their family. We will take a break from the ovens to enjoy a lunch of The BEST chicken soup ever, my Chicken and Vegetable Pot au Feu, and a Bistro Salad along with, you guessed it, fresh-baked bread. Our sweet finish will be either Rustic Walnut Apple Tart or Chocolate Pot de Crème, the class will vote, winner takes all! Wine will be served with lunch.
You will be set for success with recipes in hand and a 1000-gram bread kit ready to take home to dazzle your loved ones.
