This class is a repeat of the class offered in fall semester. Participants will explore methods and techniques of bread baking using starters, poolish, bigas and enriched doughs. All classes will be hands on and teach kneading, stretch and fold, shaping, scoring techniques, and baking with steam for crusty breads. Participants will receive their own starter with instructions in feeding, plus recipes to make wonderful sourdough boules, baguettes, foccacia, and ciabatta at home. We will make French croissants to enjoy with tea during our last afternoon class with a question and answer session. Informative, instructive and fun are some of the terms used by former students to describe baking with these ladies. Look forward to taking goodies home!

Instructors: LLI members Carolyn Frank, Kay Acker and Sarah Jones have been baking bread of all kinds for their families and friends for years. They attended baking and cooking classes at Wade's Mill in Raphine for many years until the miller and chef retired. Two years ago they traveled to Vermont to the King Arthur's Baking Institute for a week of instruction and baking. They are excited to share their experience and knowledge with friends at JMU-LLI.

Additional Fee: $20 per person to cover cost of baking ingredients, payable to the course assistant at the first class.
