Workshop Review: Easy Bread Making

Thanks to everyone who came out for our workshop on Easy Bread Making this past Tuesday! We had another packed house and it was lovely to see everyone there. Facilitator Scott Bernstein shared his bread-making talents with us.

We learned the basics of making white, whole wheat, and rye breads both by hand and using a mixer, as well as how to make homemade pizza dough.

We also learned techniques for kneading bread -- what a great upper body workout!

Finally -- the best part -- we got to sample some bread. Nothing, simply nothing, beats fresh bread with butter!
