In our 2-day online bread baking classes, Chef Eric will take you through the steps you need to become a serious homemade bread baker. Bread-making is something that required time and patience. If you want good quality bread, you need to work at it but with the simplest ingredients and proper technique, you will do just that.
The online cooking course will guide you through the preparation of delicious baguettes, brioche, & fougasse with no additives and plenty of taste. This is a 2-day bread initiation we will show you how to get delicious bread without making a sourdough starter. This will give you a more stable product without skimping on flavor.
