Bread Master Class

Learn to Make French Bread in France

We’re bringing good bread back to your table. 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.

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 . . .  
Each participant will take home the bread he or she has made. We will provide a list of equipment with the addresses where to purchase them and a few useful tools like an excel file to calculate hydrometry of the dough.

At the end of each day, we’ll finish the class with a bread tasting & discuss the bread we’ve produced with a glass of wine, cheese and a light late lunch.
