About This Class

Are you a bread lover, but totally terrified at the thought of making if yourself? Do you love nothing more than the fragrant aroma of bread baking?  Do you dream about tearing into a pillowy loaf without having to share it?  If you answered yes to one or all of the above, then this class is for you!

This class is meant for the baking novice.  We’re going to talk about the basics of bread baking, from ingredients to equipment, and even talk a little bit about the science of what exactly is happening in the oven.  Then, we’ll get in the kitchen and work our way up from a basic quick bread to a rustic yeast-based loaf.  Further, I’ll share an overview of gluten-free bread and we’ll make some delicious gluten-free cheese rolls.  And finally- a bonus!  We’ll make a sweet pumpkin bread, the perfect addition to any brunch year-round.
