Class offered on baking artisan bread at home

By Staff | Apr 13, 2015

Peter Burr Bread Bakers’ Guild will present an all-day bread baking class on Saturday, April 25, in the Social Hall of Grace Reformed Church in Kearneysville. Hours are from 8 a.m. until 4 p.m.

The class is designed for the home bread baker; however, it will be taught with consideration of the historic context of bread baking. Students will learn: What is Artisan Bread?; Characteristics of artisan bread; basic classes of wheat grown in the United States; the oven and the cloche; characteristics of some naturally leavened bread processes; bread shapes; making your own starter; and the basic recipe.

Participants will take away a live yeast starter and bread made during the class. All ingredients are included. This course is taught by Bill Theriault and Wayne Braunstein.

All proceeds go to Jefferson County Historic Landmarks Commission (JCHLC). A donation of $50 to JCHLC covers costs and contributes to preservation and operation of historic Peter Burr Farm.

Space is limited.

To sign up for the class, email Wayne at wbraun@frontiernet.net. Additional information and instructions will be sent to you by reply email. Registration is not complete until prepayment has been received.
