TRADE ROUTE TALKS: Ancient Grains of Mexico
 

Join Maite Gomez-Rejon for a series of monthly discussions about agriculture, trade and how our taste for foods have changed the landscape of our world.

THEME:

Discover the loaded symbolism of maize and amaranth, two of the most important Native American grains. You will meet the pre-Colonial plant and the religious symbols associated with it, from its repression and a means of social control post-conquest mean to today's packaged flours.
 
MENU:

Memelas with black beans and queso cotija

Alegrias - amaranth, raisin, and pumpkin seed bars

 


* Please refrain from wearing colognes, perfume or scented lotions before class *

 

Maite's Bio:

SOURDOUGH 101: Wild Yeast Breads & Jam
 

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. Once nestled in proofing baskets and loaf pans to rise, we will gather to learn about the science of wild yeast, gluten and explore the rainbow of flavors and textures of different varieties of heirloom grains (milled in Pasadena at Grist & Toll))! You'll taste Spelt, Rye, Hard Reds and Whites and Sonora wheats before choosing your favorites to make your own bread dough.

Following a quick break, you'll feed a sourdough starter and prepare a levain, then mix the dough you'll take home to bake your own loaves after class. Once the loaves you shaped are fully proofed, we'll learn to expertly slash and bake them and, while they're busy baking away in the ovens, we will make a batch of jam and churn some butter with the loveliest cream from our friends at Straus.

Please bring one large bowl to class, a jar for your starter and a large paper bag to carry your loaves home with! Stone-milled flours from Grist & Toll are available for purchase in our storefront for all your bread-making dreams.

Learn the Science Behind:
Wild yeast
Fermentation
Hydration and Extraction
Milling and history of wheat cultivation
 
Make:
Sourdough starter
Dough for two loaves of bread
Seasonal preserves
Homemade butter
 
Bake Off:
1 boule

SOURDOUGH 2: Porridge Breads, Seeded and Sprouted Loaves
 

Let's take our sourdough breads to the next level! You'll master the art of the porridge loaves by first learning to shape two loaves of bread using dough our chef has prepared; one boule and one pan loaf. Once nestled in proofing baskets and loaf pans to rise, we will gather to learn about the science of wild yeast, sprouting, soaking and work with a variety of seeds and grains for your custom loaves. You'll get to work with freshly milled flour from Pasadena's Grist & Toll, mill flour from Tehachapi Grain Project's latest harvest choose your favorites to make your own bread dough (you'll be taking that home to bake some loaves off at your leisure).

Following a quick break, you'll feed a sourdough starter and prepare a levain, then mix the dough you'll take home to bake your own loaves after class. Once the loaves you shaped are fully proofed, we'll learn to expertly slash and bake them and, while they're busy baking away in the ovens, we will make a batch of jam and make some fresh cheeses with milk from our friend at Straus. Oh- can't forget the sinful homemade hazelnut spread (be sure to bring a jar for that as well).

Please bring two large bowls to class, a jar for your starter and another for the cheese and a large paper bag to carry your loaves home with! Stone-milled flours from Grist & Toll are available for purchase in our storefront for all your bread-making dreams.

Learn the Science Behind:
Wild yeast & Fermentation
Sprouting and Seed Soaking
Porridges
Hydration and Extraction
Milling and history of wheat cultivation
 
Make:
Sourdough starter
Dough for a porridge bread
