Overcome yeast anxiety with this class on basic yeast breads! Chefs Jason and Andrew will teach you the basics of how to make a simple yeasted dough, and how different ingredients impact the texture of the loaves. From enriched doughs to sourdough loaves, you’ll understand the basic ratios of ingredients needed and how to handle the doughs. You’ll learn shaping techniques for different loaves and rolls and how oven environment changes crust textures. You’ll leave feeling confident that you can make your own simple yeasted breads at home, and how to trouble shoot when things don’t go quite right. And you won’t leave class alone – you’ll leave with your own sourdough “friend” to take care of and nurture for your at home baking projects.
This class is primarily a demonstration class, with volunteers being asked to come to into the kitchen to help. You are always welcome to get your hands into the dough! A warm winter lunch will be served, and of course, lots of bread and butter.
A welcome mimosa and a glass of wine during lunch is included. Additional wine and beer is available for purchase. Coffee and tea will be served.
