THE ART OF BAKING AND BREAKING ARTISAN BREAD

SATURDAY, AUGUST 4, 2018 (Class 10:00 - 11:30; Break bread until NOON)

Learn how to make natural artisan bread at home.  Bread making is a relaxing and contemplative, hands-on artistic endeavor.  It's also an enjoyable process of development, discovery, and sharing by breaking bread together with friends and family. Topics covered include the tradition of artisan bread making, what a "starter" is, how to maintain it, and start-to-finish steps on how to create your own bread masterpiece in a basic home kitchen. You don't need a state-of-the-art commercial kitchen to achieve critic-worthy results! At the end of the salon, everyone will break bread together with cheese, butter and olive oil. Held at Artisseur - east of the Skirball Center.

This informal, interactive salon is led by a self-taught artisan bread maker, who spent decades in Paris enjoying Pain Poilâne, baguettes, and other fresh, traditional breads daily. Over five years ago, he yearned for those flavors and textures, and from memory began a baking journey to replicate them. After researching French and American bakers, and years of experimentation, he is sharing his own at-home artisan techniques, along with his "starter."

Very limited capacity (6). $60. Includes salon; bread with cheese tasting afterward; and a natural starter to take home.
