Fall Classes!

I have officially registered for my new classes for Fall. The interesting part is that its not as busy and action-packed as past terms (so far). 😉 This is what I have thus far:

Bars and Squares
Creating a variety of items ranging from rich chocolate brownies to Nanaimo bars and lemon squares. Learn, prepare and taste these delicious new recipes, then take them home to devour.

Artisan Bread Theory
Exploring artisan bread making, including ingredient selection, water hardness, proofing time, bakery humidity, the effects of milling and environmental factors. Focusing on shaping, proofing and baking techniques and how they can be used to yield vastly different results from the same bread formula.
