France meets Italy in this exploration of true artisan bread baking! Although Baguette and Ciabatta may appear as simple breads they can take a lifetime to master.
In this class, we will delve into several methods for making these two great breads and bioth discuss and practise them. In the hands-on part we will focus on all aspects of the bread making process: mixing, fermentation, folding, shaping, proofing and baking. We will be discussing different strategies for achieving professional quality results in a home kitchen. The class will end with a tasting and discussion to link the results with the process.
Join us for a fun and informative class in the beautiful countryside setting of northern Vermont and return home with a new understanding (and appreciation!) of these timeless classic breads.
For this workshop we have invited guest teacher Randy George of Red Hen Baking Co. Vermont - owner of one of the best artisan bakeries in Vermont! Heike Meyer of Brotbakery will assist.
Randy George founded and co-owns Red Hen Baking Co. located in Middlesex, VT. In operation since 1999, Red Hen specializes in certified organic, hearth-baked breads and pastries - and a Café to enjoy those on site. Randy and his staff of 45 bake and deliver bread around Vermont seven days a week.
