Local love in every loaf.

Bread workshop take 2!

Our second bread-baking workshop will take place on Sunday, June 13th, from 12 to 5 pm, at 153 Eaton St. In the first workshop, we discussed the basics of bread-making. We worked with whole wheat flour, multi-grains, and herbs, and talked about the role that each ingredient plays in making a fine loaf of bread.

For June's workshop, we will be baking breads that use pre-ferments. We'll talk about the different types of pre-ferments, the benefits of baking with pre-ferments,  and how they differ from breads that only use yeast.

The first workshop was a lot of fun. So much so that I'm not convinced that the attendees learned more than I did. In any case, here's the deal. If you want to go through the whole process--and bake and bring home your own loaf of bread--you must arrive promptly at noon. Otherwise, you can drop in at any point during the day to enjoy a delicious cup of herbal tea (fresh from our garden!), or a cold beer. You can ask questions, observe, or just relax. And the Reuse store, always worth checking out, will be open.

Workshop space is limited, and baking spots will be given first to those who R.S.V.P. The workshop is completely free, although we will accept donations if you are able to give. All are welcome.

Til soon,
