Class Taught by Brenda Knox

Another event to celebrate the life of Richard Proenneke. Learn how to bake delicious breads using your own sourdough starter. The class will make their own sourdough starter, which will need approximately two weeks follow-up attention at home. During the class we will start a batch of french baguettes, learn to work the dough, bake already prepared baguettes, and review recipes. Course fee is $20.00, which will pay for supplies, including your own Richard Proenneke sourdough starter. Pay at the class.
