Humankind's oldest, simplest and most remarkably varied form of bread, flatbreads have been a staple of diets around the world for over 6,000 years. Taught by baker-anthropologist team Heike Meyer and Anna Mays, this class will cover the history, culture and baking techniques of different flatbreads, including unleavened, sourdough, ancient grain and non-grain breads.

We will then get our hands into some dough and make a variety of classic naturally leavened flatbreads as well as lesser known flatbreads, like a Mediterranean chickpea-based bread known as Farinata in Italy and Socca in France, and then bake them in the wood-fired oven. Students will take home a handout with recipes and instructions how to make these flatbreads at home.

Discover the varieties of Flatbreads of the World with us and leave inspired and ready to bake!

The class includes a tasting lunch where we will sample the breads with traditional and seasonal toppings and there will be pleanty of time for Q&A.
