Bread Making 101

  • Camas Country Mill Bakery and Store (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Cost: $65 per person

This is an introduction to baking naturally leavened breads at home. This class is a lecture/observation based class, with a few chances to get your hands doughy. Naturally leavened breads are most commonly known as ‘sourdough’. This is an ‘old world’ method of leavening breads without the use of commercial or instant yeast. The long fermentation of naturally leavened breads, gives the wild yeast, in the starter/sourdough culture, a chance to breakdown the complex proteins of wheat. This makes it easier for our bodies to digest while also preserving all the good stuff, vitamins and minerals!!

 

Topics covered:

  •    Milling, assessing grains and flour qualities  
  •    How to maintain a sourdough starter
  •    Hand mixing, folding, shaping
  •    Proofing and retarding naturally leavened breads
  •    Baking in a dutch oven, on a stone, and a wood fired oven

Rough Timeline:

10am – Welcome/Intro and flour talk

11am – Meet your mother and mixing dough

1230pm – Cutting, pre-shaping, and forming loaves

1pm – Lunch Break

2-4pm – Oven talk and baking loaves
