Artisanal Bread Baking

Get ready to channel your inner bread baker: this inspiring class will teach you the proper mixing, kneading and professional bread baking techniques to make breads from around the world.

Breathe in the aroma of freshly baked loaves and realize your dough-making dreams in this ICC course devoted to the art of producing beautiful baguettes, fresh focaccia, crusty ciabatta and braided challah, to name a few of the artisanal breads in the curriculum.
