Introduction to Bread Baking
February 26 @ 10:30 am – 1:30 pm
In this Introduction to Bread Baking workshop, join our head chef and instructor, Kristin “Baker Bettie” Hoffman, to walk through the process of making bread from scratch.
Participants will learn the importance of each ingredient and why each plays a crucial role in the bread making process. In addition, we will go over:
- How to proof yeast
- How to knead dough by hand
- How to shape dough in a variety of ways
- How to know when dough is finished proofing
- How to use temperature to adjust the dough schedule
Each student will make and take home a rustic artisan-style loaf, whole wheat seeded rolls, and a cherry chocolate Danish braid.
