What you'll learn in this bread class:

Have you longed to share bread made with your own hands with family and friends, to smell the aroma of freshly baked loaf in your own kitchen? Would you like to refine your baking skills? Or would you simply like to play with dough for a few hours on a weekend afternoon? Whatever the reason, join us for a hands-on class in the basics of bread baking.

We'll discuss the ten steps of the process of making bread, and you'll participate in each one, from selecting ingredients, to kneading a dough by hand, to shaping, scoring and baking (and, of course, tasting).

The Menu:
  • Classic Baguette
  • French Rolls with butter or chocolate
  • Fruit & Nut Whole Wheat Loaves
What You Will Learn:
  • The tools, techniques, and ingredients needed to make your own dough from scratch
  • Artisan techniques for shaping and baking rustic breads
  • Tips and tricks for recreating a professional oven in your home kitchen
  • How to handle different types of dough to create a variety of shapes and styles

Dario is a great instructor; he is incredibly patient and will make sure everyone is comfortable and productive. He provided great tips and encouraged us to ask him questions. I enjoyed learning how to shape and handle different doughs, and I liked how we got to take our own dough home to try it ourselves. Since I wasn’t heading home right away, the restaurant was kind enough to refrigerate my dough to pick up later.

Absolutely fantastic! It's a fun class for beginners. We played with dough and baked bread. We even got to take home some dough and freshly baked bread. The teacher was great and made it easy for everyone to follow along. If you like bread and you have ever wanted to take a class, this is the one to take.
