About this experience
Do you love the idea of baking bread at home, but feel you lack the skills to produce a well-baked loaf? If so, this class is exactly what you need to get started on your bread baking journey.
”Bread Baking 101” is designed for students with little to no prior baking experience. We’ll cover the basics, including: choosing the appropriate flour; understanding the role that commercial yeast plays in bread baking; finding the ideal water temperature for proper dough development; and figuring out the differences between table salt, kosher salt, and sea salt. While not a focus of the class, we’ll also talk about sourdough starters and other natural leavening methods. Students will mix, shape, and bake two different loaves of bread.
Class includes a sourdough pizza lunch that students will create as part of the class. Participants are welcome to take home a sample of Journeyman's sourdough starter to begin their own bread baking tradition. Aprons provided.
Refunds are available if the student notifies Journeyman of cancellation at least 48 hours in advance of the scheduled class.
This class will be held at 314 Depew Street in Peekskill (near the corner of Hudson Avenue and Depew Street).
This is a hands-on class (bring an apron!) led by Michael Sellers, owner of Journeyman Bakery and voted Best New Bread Baker by Westchester Magazine in 2017. Students will receive further information and confirmation after registration.
