Buy less and eat more. Understand the basics of homemade bread baking including creating a soaker, starter, sponge, ingredients, baking hints, recipes and more.
This lecture and hands on demonstration, led by Chris Blank, will teach the necessary tools and ingredients, how to make your own starter, simple recipes, and baking techniques to get you started on baking bread for years to come.
In this class we will be making a traditional hearty bread from New England known as Anadama bread.
When baking at home, you’re in charge of what goes into every loaf. You have the choice to buy whatever ingredients you desire and supporting local, organic, and/or fair trade in your purchasing choices will just make it that much more sustainable. Ingredients aside, baking at home means less waste too - all the way from the energy used in harvesting, processing, packaging and shipping it, to the bag it’s packaged in. All these benefits end up costing you less as well. Baking bread at home saves in more ways than one.
