Our school is the heart and soul of what we love
We created Brot Bakehouse School and Kitchen to provide a place for people who love food & baking to come together, share their passion and their knowledge. In partnership with other bakers, chefs, and food-makers we offer classes and workshops that center around the ancient craft of bread baking - but also go much further. Our creative process is based on curiosity, knowledge and compassion for our shared planet.
We believe growing organically is better for our health and the health of our planet. A grain that is grown without pesticides can develop more robust chemical defenses against environmental stresses and predators. The soil is healthier and the deeper root systems allow the plant to draw more minerals from the soil. Plus, organic farmers often choose heirloom or native varieties over "Frankenwheats", which can be more nutritious - and are definitely more flavorful. By the way: Organically grown always means non-gmo.
Eating local doesn't just mean supporting your local farmer. It also has a host of positive economic, social and environmental effects. Local foods tend to be fresher, have more nutrients and use less packaging. It leads to strong local economies that benefit our communities.
Why baking with us?
All our teachers are experts in their field and they love to share that knowledge with you. Our approach is in-depth and hands-on, so you can go home with a deep knowledge and appreciation of the world of natural bread baking. Plus: Learning about sourdough fermentation and bread flavor pairing is fun and delicious!
