"I am going to learn to make bread tomorrow. So you may imagine me with my sleeves rolled up, mixing flour, milk, saleratus, etc., with a deal of grace. I advise you if you don't know how to make the staff of life to learn with dispatch."
- Emily Dickinson

Fun Italian Breads Series
This Fall mini-series will include 3 classes spaced out in 2 week intervals. With a focus on FUN while learning, we'll progress through increasingly wetter doughs. Beginning with breadsticks @ 65% hydration, then focaccia @ 75%, we'll end with ciabatta @ 85%. Whether you are new to yeast breads or an experienced baker, we guarantee you'll have fun while learning some new recipes and techniques.

Rosemary Focaccia
This class will take you on quick bread trip to Italy as we make classic Italian flatbread known as focaccia. Our breads will feature a topping of fresh rosemary (optional) and extra virgin olive oil (with coarse sea salt if desired). Please bring a non-stick sheet pan to class if you have one.

This will be a “participation type” hands-on course, and each student will take home bread fresh-from-the-oven. We will utilize the well equipped culinary classroom at Conard High School which is convenient to I-84. Class size will be limited, so be sure to sign up early. $5 materials fee is payable to the instructor. 1 session

"Since I took your sourdough bread class this past fall, I've gone through 30 pounds of bread flour and have hooked my husband and son on that amazing bread. Great class!"
