Bread baking 101

April 12, 2010

Four different kinds of breads

See what I made in my Bread Baking 101 class at the School of Culinary Arts at Kendall college!

There is the focaccia bread on the left, with two different toppings. Right next to it, towards the top of the picture, is the nice crusty baguette (with one end broken off because I had to have it hot and slathered with European butter and could not wait till after I take the picture.) The baguette is followed by the sourdough bread roll, and. finally, at the bottom right, the star of the show, the braided challah bread.

They were all fairly easy to make and taste, oh, so delicious. I am surely going to be making them again at home one by one. I will write up the recipes as I go along, for posterity. In case there is special interest in any particular bread, let me know and I have will have a go at that one first.

A big thanks to S for telling me about this class and for being my very excited class partner.

      No sadly it was just a one time thing. Though they have weekly classes in which they teach different things like knife skills, meat cooking, sea food etc. I am going to one next week for French desserts. I am sure you would have loved that one.

      It was so fun in fact that I went to another one at the same culinary school where we made some yummy desserts from Julia Child’s cookbook. I will be posting about that soon.
