If you didn't have a chance to take Gene Fioretti's class in previous seasons, you are in luck. It is being offered again on two Tuesdays in January.
All you need to bring is yourself. Fioretti will demonstrate the vital steps in mixing, forming and baking this wonderful loaf, and at the end of the class, you will sample the loaf that will have baked throughout the class. You will receive a copy of the recipe and have ample time to discuss the many aspects of artisan bread-making.
Fioretti is a retired cardiologist, who learned to bake bread in 1979 from one of his patients, a retired German baker. Fioretti had the privilege of helping the baker through his heart attack, and the baker repaid him with a day-long bread class at his home. Fioretti has been baking bread ever since.
In this class, he will use a recipe for a perfect, healthy bread for the novice baker. It is a practically no-knead, rustic, country bread, which is nearly foolproof and cooked in a Dutch oven. Learning to make this bread should give you the confidence you need to make great-tasting bread at home and to begin expanding your horizons in baking all different kinds of bread.
He has taught this short course for the past three years with excellent feedback from students. This year, he will teach two sessions to accommodate all those budding bakers out there. Hope you will join us!
This course was offered twice.
