Artesian Bread Making 101 - $2.00 Per Person

  • Dec 1, 2012 · 1:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

I love making breads......

Not sure how many in this group share this passion or is interested in learning. To me it is one of the most rewarding of the culinary disciplines and takes practice to master.

Let me peak your curiosity and start your journey by showing you the basics:

preferments (starters) to take home
We will break up and make French levain, leavened rye, ciabatta, cinnamon golden raisin loaf and for the adventurous a traditional German pretzel

You will need to bring:

$2 for materials
3-4 quart mixing bowl with lid. Plastic is fine
Wooden spoon or spatula(optional)
Disposable gloves (if your a size other than medium)- also optional
Something small to share to go with our breads
Your beverage

Since I closed my bakery.... I conveniently relocated the equipment into my mancave... Its better equipped now than my commercial kitchen :). Since its my first time hosting I would like to keep it under 20 people and see how it goes
Simple shaping techniques and baking
And of course....eating

    Brent and Karen, this artesian bread making event far exceeded my wildest expectations. The hands on workshop was fantastic. The recipes, ingredients, and sharing will be long remembered and talked about for years to come. The class was outstanding along with all of your tips and professional knowledge. Your soup was delicious and the bread out of this world. You're an awesome teacher and culinary master. Thank you for inviting us to your professional mancave.

    This gathering was just fantastic - learning the fine art of making artisanal breads: handmade, with a proofed yeast mixture with a long resting period; wonderful organic ingredients; then kneading just to the right touch, with resting periods; shaping - all the tips were wonderful. This is by far the very best bread I have ever made. Now I know what I had been doing wrong all these years. Can't wait to impress friends with a loaf I make at home.
