Greetings from the Bakery!
Bread Classes have officially started and I couldn't be happier about teaching! Making bread in the summer is just as rewarding, but for different reasons. Teaching folks how to make their own bread is something that I'm truly passionate about. Some folks have sent messages that they heard the spot on NPR over the weekend - I swear I'm the only one who DIDN'T hear it! That being said, classes are filling up so don't hesitate on reserving a spot soon! If you'd like to purchase a class as a gift (or give someone a HINT to purchase a class for YOU), now's the time! I can also provide a card for gifting - just shoot me an email for more information!
Fresh-Milled & Organic
...an update to last week's installment...
Tomorrow I'm headed up to a farm, about an hour north of Cincinnati, to meet a farmer who grows organic spelt. Spelt is one of my favorite grains (second only to rye) that is so satisfying to work with. The flavor is earthy and balanced, the dough is stretchy and strong, the gluten is minimal. We eat a lot of spelt around here, and I've been looking for a local source of organic spelt so I can start milling my own. Stay tuned to see how it goes - I'm coming home with a bag to test out!
