Our cooking classes make a great ladies night out, couples date night, family night, or team building for businesses or groups.

You Knead Some Bread!

Heat up that oven or plugin that bread machine! We’ll cover the basics of various breads and baking them. There is nothing like the smell of fresh bread baking or the taste of warm bread as you pull it apart and the steam releases. We’ll introduce you to the versatile artisan bread that can be used in many ways. You’ll learn biscotti is easy, and scones can be sweet or savory. And, we’ll cover flat and quick breads. You take a ‘boulle’ of dough to create your ‘choice’ bread at home.
