BREAD CAMP: Wild Yeast Breads, Jams & 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, Doughnuts, Parmesan Bread, Whole Wheat Baguette, Hazelnut Fig Loaf, Sprouted Wheat Bread, Classic Sourdough

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

Preserves: Classic Strawberry, Blueberry Orange Blossom

EACH CLASS IS 5 HOURS

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.

BREAD CAMP: Wild Yeast Breads, Jams & 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, Doughnuts, Parmesan Bread, Whole Wheat Baguette, Hazelnut Fig Loaf, Sprouted Wheat Bread, Classic Sourdough

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

Preserves: Classic Strawberry, Blueberry Orange Blossom

EACH CLASS IS 5 HOURS

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.

THE SANTA MONICA CHOCOLATE SOCIETY:Confections from Santa Barbara to Madison, WI
 

The Santa Monica Chocolate Society gathers every month to celebrate and savor the finest, rarest and tastiest chocolate on Earth. Once a month, Gourmandise chocolate expert Ruth Kennison opens her wondrous cabinet of carefully curated bean-to-bar chocolates from around the world for thoughtful tastings and discussions. Each class features a different themes; from chocolate tastings to guest chocolate makers, confectioners or cacao bean farmers to flavor hunters. No bonbon will be left behind. You can expect to taste a minimum of 5 exquisite chocolates.

 

THEME:

This evening will be dedicated to two award-winning chocolatiers and chocolate shop owners. Maya from Chocolate Maya in Santa Barbara and Megan from Madison Chocolate in Madison, WI, will travel in (with samples) to share their unique perspectives on opening chocolate businesses. The two women have forged a unique relationship as 'sister shops' and are excited to share about the highs and lows of chocolate entrepreneurship.

Cacao is grown 10-20 degrees north and south of the Equator.  Traditionally, countries that grew cacao did not produce chocolate, and there are many reasons for that, ranging from environmental factors to geopolitics. Countries that grow cacao are now, thanks to direct trade and the growth of the craft chocolate movement, producing some of the most interesting single-origin chocolate on the market. This is good news for chocolate lovers but, more importantly, for the local growers and suppliers in their respective regions.  Find out why and how delicious chocolate made in the countries they are grown in can taste!

Gather 'round as we knead, stretch, fold and proof our way to beautiful, naturally leavened loaves. You'll come into class and shape two loaves of bread using dough our chef has prepared; one boule and one pan loaf.
