Bread Camp: Wild Yeast Breads, Jams and Cheesemaking
 

It's Bread Camp! Learn to work with various doughs, from lean to rich and quick to long-fermented. You will be working with locally sourced grains and milling your own flours in class, learning to shape Baguette, Boules and Batards, make Brioches, Sticky Buns and Dinner Rolls as well as artisanal Boules. The science of yeast, gluten, fermentation and aging will be covered, as well as seasonal jams and handmade cheeses.

We will learn how to grow our own cultures, feed the sourdough for maximum strength and how to create loaves with thick crusts, wonderfully irregular holes and pearly crumbs.  You’ll discover why northern France and Northern California are prized for their strong-flavored breads and how to make a series of beautiful rustic loaves with your own signature scoring.


Breads: Dinner Rolls, Focaccia, Sandwich Bread, Milk Bread, Parmesan Bread, Whole Wheat Baguette, Hazelnut Fig Loaf, Sprouted Wheat Bread, Classic Sourdough

Cheeses: Ricotta, Chevre, Cultured Butter, Burrata, Mozzarella

Preserves: Classic Strawberry, Nectarine and Lemon Verbena, Peach, Blueberry Orange Blossom

EACH CLASS IS 5 HOURS


Should you book all 4 of this summer's Series, please use code ProPastrySummer10% at checkout to save 10%.

The Boulangerie Series is designed to give you a well-rounded education in the art of bread making.  You’ll learn everything from basic sandwich loaves to rustic artisanal loaves.  Each student will work independently, and breads will be made primarily by hand and rarely with a stand mixer.  All of these courses can be taken individually or as a grouping with a discount.  

As with all of our courses, please wear comfortable, close-toed shoes and bring containers with you to transport your finished products home (in bread classes, we recommend bringing grocery bags).

Thank you for registering!  Our classes are held in commercial kitchens, so please arrive on time in comfortable attire and closed-toed shoes.  No cell phones in class, please.  Please note that we do not offer refunds but honor a 48-hour cancellation policy in order to reschedule your reservation.
