We will learn how to start a starter, how to keep a starter alive, and how to use a starter. We will also use fresh yeast for certain types of bread including but not limited to, hamburger buns and brioche. We will also create flavored bread using seeds and cereals, cacao, figs, walnuts . . .

Learn both about the theory of bread making (yes, it’s just as important), as well as practical hands-on bread production during this 3-day bread master class.

The purpose of this master class is to learn how to make bread the old-fashioned way, using both hand and machine, with ancient wheat flour. We will make 2 or 3 kinds of bread every morning. We will learn different cooking techniques, different flavoring, and different timing and their consequences on bread-making.
