Chef Demo with Guest Pizzaiolo, Noel Brohner (with $10 gift card)
 
 

Free Demo! Saturday, 2/18/2017

12:00pm-2:00pm

 

After a very successful standing-room only pizza demo and sold-out pizza and bread class in 2016, Surfas is proud to welcome back local pizzaiolo, Noel Brohner! He has been working behind the scenes in the restaurant industry for over 25 years. You've probably never heard of him but the best chefs in town call him in regularly to launch and fine-tune their artisan pizza and bread programs.  


In 2013 he helped get Bestia's breads and pizzas off the ground for Chef Ori Menashe when he opened Bestia in the Arts District. In 2014 he was called in by Chef Walter Manzke to work on flatbreads at Republique in Hancock Park.  In 2015, Bill Chait called him in to assist Chef Jason Neroni with his wood-fired pizza program for the reboot of the Rose Cafe in Venice.  And in 2016, local Chef and pizza lover Evan Funke introduced him to Chef Akasha Richmond at the Santa Monica Farmer's market and the two instantly hit it off. Richmond immediately invited him to consult on her Roman-inspired bread and pizza and help launch her new Italian restaurant in Culver City, AR Cucina. 

Chef Noel will Demonstrate:

Neo-Neapolitan (pizza)
100% Whole Wheat (flat bread)
*You will receive a $10 gift card for Surfas store at the end of the Class.

As a follow-up to his standing-room-only Pizza 101 Demo and sold out Advanced Pizza Class in 2016, Pizzaiolo Noel Brohner is preparing another in-depth, four hour Advanced Artisan Pizza Class for Home Bakers with limited enrollment so that attendees can have more personal instruction and hands-on experience. Noel will provide deeper insight into the process of crafting a variety of artisan pizza and bread doughs which anyone can prepare in a home kitchen. 

Noel will traverse a variety of pressing topics including how to work with sourdough; how to prepare other traditional pre-ferments including biga, poolish and pate fermentee; how to work with 100% whole wheat bread and pizzas; how baker's math works and, as always, how mastering it can help you to nail your times and temps and fine tune your recipes; and, finally, we'll spend more time than ever practicing hand techniques like folding, pre-shaping, balling and opening dough balls.
