Continental bread

French Class


This class uses simple ingredients to produce breads that really impress! You will bake a rustic fougasse and crusty baguette style loaves along with a delicate, enriched pain de mie made with eggs, butter, milk, and sugar. Rachael will demonstrate how to shape and bake flamiche, a cross between a pizza and a quiche that is perfect for picnics.
