Take home your own prepared dough to bake-off as a full loaf, plus a finished warm baguette you made in class, and a jar of homemade butter.
Tom of Preserving Now has been a great bread baker for over 40 years. He has changed, added, perfected his methods over the years – and what he’s doing now is the best ever. He’ll teach the bread-making portion of the class, while Lyn teaches the butter-making fun.
The bread can be considered “French Style” – meaning flaky, crunchy crusts along with a center texture that’s light and airy and not too dense. Melt in your mouth goodness! This is so simple and delicious, which is why it’s been very popular among seasoned bread makers.
It’s hand-done (always – no bread machine here!) but no-knead and very low yeast. Guess what? No added sugar either – but tastes as sweet as if you did!
The recipe allows you to make bread loaves, ciabatta, baguettes, boules, even foccacia. You’ll learn how to mix and how much to let it rest. Then you’ll shape into French Baguettes for this class – bake it up and take it home. You’ll also be taking home the first full batch you mix up which has been resting – and can bake it off at home as one of the above – boule anyone?
We’ll also make homemade butter – so easy and so much better tasting that what you can buy. And so tasty on that just-made warm baguette! You’ll learn various ways to make it and what are the best creams to use. Then take home a jar of this butter, freshly made by you!
You’ll get complete take-home instructions, recipes, and resources for both the bread and butter for safe and sure bread making and canning.
