Cost: $140.00 /participant
Group Size: 4-6
October 15th, 1pm to 5 pm

November 5th, 1pm to 5 pm

In this class we cover the fundamentals of baking traditional European sourdough rye and mixed-flour breads. Rye flour is naturally low in gluten and therefore well suited for those who suffer from gluten sensitivity. However, the low gluten content requires very different techniques as compared to wheat flour breads. We will discuss various recipes and you will taste samples of our artisan rye breads. You will bake two types of breads in class and make one mixed flour bread dough to take home to bake the next day. All baking utensils and ingredients will be supplied, including a sample of our rye sourdough starter.

At the end of the class, we will taste some warm pretzels with customary German accompaniments. You will leave the workshop with our recipe, the knowledge of how to recreate it at home, and all the pretzels you made in class.
