The success of bread making, in general, is a lot about cause and effect. The amount of yeast relative to fermentation period, higher baking temperatures to produce better rise in the oven. However, there are still many other factors that can bring about different magnitudes of change to your dough texture and flavor.

Bread is technical and artisanal. Your hands are your tools and knowledge, your map. There's nothing more satisfying than walking through its process from raw ingredients to the aroma of a crusty loaf finishing in the oven to a deep golden hue. 

Baking is such a big world on its own, so let us break it down for you into specific topics that develop your skill stage by stage. It's not only about developing your practical skills but also a focus on the theory and science behind bread.


Participants will work in pairs although some group work may be necessary.
