Baking Classes Coming Up

I've got two baking classes coming up:
Perfect Pies
Thursday, August 17
4:30 - 6:30 pm
Class fee $30
This will be a hands on class. Each participant will be rolling out their own all-butter crust to take home. I'll demo several pies from start to finish and we'll have plenty to sample. We'll cover fruit pies, blind-baking crusts for cream pies, and even a chicken pot pie. I'll share all of the tips and tricks I've learned since I baked my first pie as a teenager. If you've ever been intimidated by making a pie from scratch, this is the class for you.

Simple Sourdough Bread
Thursday, September 7
2:00 - 4:30 pm
Class fee $35
We'll be mixing and baking round hearth loaves of a crusty sourdough/pain au levain bread. This recipe does not use any commercial yeast, just flour, water, salt, and a small amount of starter. It is made entirely by hand, no mixer or kneading necessary. The degree of "tang" in the bread can be varied by adjusting the time and temperature of the proofing.
You'll get to practice shaping and scoring a loaf. We'll use several different steaming methods to show you how to get a nice crust in a home oven. You'll each leave the class with a loaf of bread, a jar of starter, and a detailed recipe.
Class size is limited to seven.
