Enjoyed taking an Artisan Bread Class ...

this weekend with my sister-in-law. It was girl's day out to have some fun baking time learning about baking artisan type breads. Our class was at the Pacific Institute of Culinary Arts located in Granville Island, in Vancouver, BC.

In the 6 1/2 hour class, Chef Alfred Voss taught us all we wanted to know about Artisan bread from making the sourdough starter, selecting ingredients, mixing, kneading, resting, proofing, shaping our doughs to baking them into breads.

We each came away from our day with 7 loaves of baked bread, a multigrain breakfast dough for baking in the morning and a small container of sourdough starter for our future bread making, along with recipes to make our breads at home. The best part is we came home with the confidence of making our own breads to feed our family and we had a fun time learning together.
