UPCOMING CLASSES / SESSIONS

REMINDER: BREADMAKING CLASS THIS SATURDAY!!

We will close out the Breadmaking class at end of day, this Thursday. The class is this Saturday.

UPCOMING CLASSES / SESSIONS:

We are scheduling the following classes / sessions in the hopes that they will help you with your holiday baking and/or gift giving.

In order to sign up, you must pre-pay. Classes will be kept limited so that everyone is able to get the most out of the class and all the hands on experience that allows for. Sign ups are on a first come, first served basis.

All classes start at 10am and go until done (typically around 3pm). If we do not have a minimum number of folks coming to any given class, we will cancel it and refund those who have paid for it. Refunds will not be given for those who do not come to class or cancel less than 72 hours before class.

Children 8 yrs and older are welcome but must be with a participating and responsible adult. Breastfeeding Moms are welcome as is the baby. We ask that all other children be left with someone they love and you trust so that more can be accomplished in the class. Bring a sack lunch as we will not take a lunch break.

BREADMAKING CLASS - October 25th - $10 each
PIE MAKING CLASS- November 8th - $10 each
DECORATIVE BREAD MAKING CLASS - November 15th - $10 each
CANDY MAKING SESSION - December 13th - $25 each

Breadmaking Class - We will make loaves of both white and wheat bread from scratch. This is a hands on class that will help you be able to replicate it at home in the future. We'll cover how to tell what went wrong as well as how to correct the oopsies. Everyone will go home with a loaf of bread of their own making and recipes.

Pie Making Class - It seems pie crust making is intimidating to many. It's not hard...really. We'll go over it and make a crust of our own. We'll also learn about decorative crusts, types of pies (cream, fruit, traditional, etc). Everyone will go home with at least one pie of their own making and recipes.

Decorative Breadmaking Class - You need to be able to make bread on your own to take this class. We will cover everything from various styles of roll making to braided breads, and other shapes and sizes (including hamburger and hotdog buns). As always, this is a hands on class and you will go home with several types of breads of your own making and recipes.

Candy Making Session - While we will be teaching you how to make the candies this will be more of a candy making session where everyone makes the candies and can take a number of the candies home with them to make platters for gatherings or for gifts. They will keep for the holidays so have no fear! You will also go home with recipes.
