Join Tony D'Onofrio and Dominique D'Onofrio as they show you how easy it is to make fresh, malt-boiled bagels from scratch, how to griddle-cook homemade English Muffins, and how to make foolproof jam-filled scones! All levels of bakers are welcome.
Learn from a former pastry, baking and artisan bread instructor as he walks you through how to make different types of dough. You will learn about the different types of yeast used in baking and how to convert from one to another. This class will cover all-purpose flour, bread flour and high-gluten flour and when to use which type. You will learn the essentials of baking: dough temperature, gluten development, dough fermentation, shaping, proofing and baking. This class is focused on producing these items in a home kitchen. All recipes will be provided, and you will be taking home the baked products that you make!
There will be an additional materials fee of $5.00, which will be added to the cost of the class when you register.
