Until covid settles down we will NOT be eating together in my classroom. Because of this, we won't be making anything to be consumed on-site. Instead, we'll make things to eat at home.

Great Loaf Breads Series
This Spring mini-series will include 3 classes spaced out in 2 week intervals. With a focus on FUN while learning, we'll progress through increasingly sophisticated "pan breads" (loaves baked in pans) that are great for slicing, sandwiches, and toasting for breakfast.

We'll begin with a classic "split-top" farmhouse bread. Next up will be my famous quick & easy oatmeal bread as featured in the Hartford Courant baking challenge. We'll end with whole wheat with optional cinnamon and raisins.
