Open your oven to the delicious European-art of Artisan Bread. Get a friend or three and knead some quality time together as you’ll learn to make loaves of French heaven, completely from scratch. Your off-the-shelf sandwich bread days are finally over. Don’t have friends? You’ve got us ;), we’ll do this experience just for you too.
Baking bread is a very satisfying feeling, the wholesomeness of a crusty loaf, the lingering aroma from the oven and the knowledge that you are eating healthy. This once-dying art has seen a renaissance with more artisan/gourmet bread returning to home kitchens. Famous food authors like Michael Pollan have recently taken epic journeys to learn this art – all you have to do is travel to Malad.

What’s a baker without an apron! So you begin by suiting up. Here’s where you take off all your accessories and get your fingers, and hands ready to dive into some dough.
Your Instructor will introduce you to the art of baking and discuss the specific breads you will make. As she demonstrates making the first bread, she will talk about the process of breadmaking, and WHY you do what you do at each step of the way.
Knead a hand?
When it comes to kneading, everybody gets to try their hand at it for a bit!
While the first bread is rising, you will prepare ingredients for the second bread and start on it. This will be with minimal supervision, with you taking the lead.
Next, it is time to knock down that bread. You will learn how to tell when a bread is proved.
While your loaves are in the oven, the Instructor will talk to you about the proper storage of bread, the possibility of freezing dough or bread, sources of fresh and dried yeast and the difference between the two.
