    French & Italian Breads

    Bread. It’s been famously referred to as the staff of life, but all you know about it is its location in relation to the frozen-food section in the supermarket. Take a more hands on approach to your bread and join Chef Ben and learn how to bake your own bread! It’s a great hobby and a great way to treat your loved ones to homemade goodness. Learn all of Ben's tips and techniques to make food out of yeast and flour! You’ll be learning how to make Baguettes, Focaccia, Ciabatta and Garlic Bread Roulade. By the end of the class you’ll be able to make more baguettes than a frenchman on a bicycle can carry (safely). And the next time life asks you for a staff -- you’ll have a spare.

    Jerry's Baking Book Club

Not only does Jerry enjoy baking, he enjoys reading books about baking. He even dreams about baking (Jerry’s Baking Dream Journal Club to come soon!). If Jerry was not a cake decorator extraordinaire he would have been a librarian (he loves the dewey decimal system). The Baking Book Club combines his passion for baking and his extensive collection of cook books into one fantastic evening. He will pick one of his favorite cook books and teach you how to make three savory selections out of it. Jerry is a pretty cool guy and his Baking Book Club scintillatingly delicious.
