Ciabatta: One dough, endless possiblities

  • Camas Country Mill Bakery and Store 91948 Purkerson Road Junction City, OR, 97448 United States (map)

Cost: $65 per person

Dough knowledge level: Intermediate/Advanced

This class is a Intermediate/Advanced class, and is a continuation from what we learned from the Bread Making 101 class. Ciabatta is a very versatile, classic Italian bread, with endless possibilities. In this "Hands on" class, we will be mixing, forming, and baking 100% naturally leavened Ciabatta and a few variations.  

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!!

What you will go home with:

  • Knowledge of how to bake ciabatta at home
  • a piece of your own couche
  • freshly baked bread we bake in class

We will also provide a light casual dinner and drinks.

  •    Mixing Highly Hydrated doughs
