An intimate and in-depth exploration of all things British! Join us to discover the classic breads and cheeses from different regions and enjoy hands-on baking and a curated cheese tasting at the end of this special workshop.
If your family hailed from England, Scotland or Ireland you are probably familiar with such classic baked goods like Irish Soda bread, Oatcakes, Bannock, Milk Loaves, Barley Flatbread and -of course - Scones with clotted cream. But did you know that England and Scotland have a rich history of baking bread with beer and spent grain? Together we'll explore this almost forgotten art and learn the techniques of baking beer with brewer's yeast and other natural yeasts and starters.
But we don't just bake bread in this special workshop; we'll also discover some great cheeses, some of which are rare finds in the US.
In the first part of the class we'll go on a hands-on "bread" journey and learn to make everything from classic Irish Soda bread (no shortcuts here!) to barley flour breads, beer breads and oatcakes. In the second part of the class cheese expert Rory Stamp will lead us through a tasting of special cheeses from the British Isles and we'll discover what's behind a really good cheddar cheese.
In the third part of the class we'll enjoy all the things we've created in class and more to come together for a tasting.
What could be better than spending St. Patrick's Day in the bakery, honoring the rich food traditions of Ireland, Scotland and England.
