Yeast Bread Baking Basics

Saturday, February 10, 2018
12:00 PM - 2:00 PM
Eden Hall Campus, Lodge Kitchen

Cost: $50, 10% discount for Chatham Alumni!

Have you ever wanted to take a crash course in bread baking? This workshop will cover the fundamentals of baking in two hours. We will cover basic mixing, shaping, and scoring techniques, all with yeast doughs. Each participant will leave with a bowl of dough and the knowledge of how to bake at home. The workshop will be followed by a tasting.

Note: please bring a large bowl to take home dough.

All proceeds from this event will go directly to building a wood-fired bread oven at the Eden Hall Campus! Learn more about this exciting project here:
