Intro to Bread

What could be better than serving a steamy, fresh out of the oven loaf of bread.  Chef Sebastien Thieffine, from The French Pastry School, will teach you to do just that.  In this class you will learn how to make a variety of breads from the classic french baguette to the rustic farmer’s bread.  Throughout the three days you will learn the different phases of bread; from mixing the ingredients to proofing to baking.  Once you have perfected the techniques of classic french bread you will move on to whole wheat bread with an oatmeal crust along with a whole grain sourdoug

Before I began my studies [in Art History and Business Administration], I worked as a pastry and bread baker at a local artisan bakery….I have spent many long days and nights devoting myself to the delicate art of cakes, tortes, tarts, and baguettes. I have seen pictures and read articles featuring [Chef Jacquy Pfeiffer’s] work, including the documentary Kings of Pastry. I will forever be in awe of [his] perfect handling of chocolate (which I cannot seem to make beautiful, but I suppose every baker has their strengths and weaknesses).
