You have three opportunities to bake with me this fall…three separate 3-hour classes, offered through St. Charles Parish Schools’ Community Education Program. The classes, priced at $30 each per person, meet in a fully equipped, multi-station kitchen classroom at Hahnville High School in Boutte, LA, where each student has ample workspace for hands-on activity. Each student pays a $10 supply fee and receives a durable, reusable rising container and dough scraper, plus all necessary ingredients. (Supply fee is just $5 for returning students who should bring dough bucket and scraper to class.)
Take your choice of one, two, or three sessions:
- Wednesday, September 19th, 6 pm to 8:15 pm: Basic Bread Making. Learn to bake American-style soft sandwich bread, dinner rolls, and hamburger buns. Students will mix, knead, and shape dough in class, taking home a ready-to-bake sandwich loaf and rolls. A good class for the absolute beginner, or for those who want to brush up on essential yeast baking skills.
- Wednesday, September 26th, 6 pm to 8:15 pm: Mediterranean Flatbreads. Get past pizza and discover the world of Mediterranean flatbreads–learn to make sweet and savory focaccia breads, French walnut fougasse, and pita bread.
- Wednesday, October 3rd, 6 pm to 8:15 pm: Holiday Sweet Breads and Rolls. Cinnamon rolls, sticky buns, and filled sweet braids, with an emphasis on whole grains to make holiday treats more nutritious.
