Easy Homemade Artisan Bread
Mmm, warm bread on a cold March night might be one of the best things in the world! If you like bread that has a thin crust, a large crumb, full flavor and no kneading required, then you’ll love this class. Your instructor will demonstrate how you can start with a “poolish” that develops overnight in a Dutch oven. Pop it into a hot oven and within a short time you’ll have warm, comforting and delectable artisan bread. Plus, we’ll share some delightful butter spread recipes that you’ll get to taste in class. Workshop fee includes all food items, recipes and tasting samples.
