Come Bake With Me!

I am excited to announce that I will hold a bread baking workshop here in my Mountain View kitchen on Saturday, March 5.

– Update: The workshop is now sold out. Please contact me if you would like to be added to the waiting list, or to my mailing list for announcements of future workshops! –

What:   Home bread baking workshop

When:   Saturday, March 5, 2011; 9 a.m. to approximately 5 p.m.

Where:   My kitchen in Mountain View, California

Why:   Bread, learning, fun

I have already shared a lot of what I know about baking bread on this blog. But there are some things you just can’t convey with words and photos — you have to get your hands in the dough!

In this day-long workshop, we will bake two breads, one mixed by hand and one in a stand mixer. I will show you how I gauge dough consistency and gluten development, and shape boules and batards, with plenty of extra dough on hand for shaping practice. We will also talk about selection of ingredients, basic bread science, and setting up a home oven for hearth baking.

I will even feed you lunch!

If you’re interested, please contact me for pricing and details on how to sign up.

I hope to be baking with you soon!

  10. I wish at the moment that I lived not on the other side of the nothern hemisphere. :-( I am sure that the course would be a lot of fun!

  11. Oh my. How I envy the lucky few who will join you. If your baking workshops take off, and you want to go international, you can host one at my house in Zurich!

  12. Our collaborator from Scotland is coming for a visit that very weekend. It’s going to be a mini-retreat, but lab- and not bread-related. :(

    Have fun and please do share photos from that day with us!

  13. Sounds great. Long overdue I’d say. All the best for the first of many from New Zealand.

  14. Thank you all for your warm wishes! I hope to some day be able to bake with each of you.

  15. Yay for ‘sold out!’ I’m sure it will be the best bread baking class any of the participants have ever attended!

  16. GO GIRL…sold out…
