House of Bread Bakery Cafe offers hands-on bread making classes all year long. Students will be mixing their ingredients and kneading their own dough by hand. As a group, they learn how bread is made, the chemistry behind successful loaves, how dough is kneaded, how it should feel, how to bake it and what creative, fun things can be made. Students leave with their own loaves or other products, recipe packets, enough flour to make their own at home, and the knowledge to make bread from scratch. There are no prerequisites to the classes so beginners and advanced students are welcome. Students must be at least 15 for the adult classes and 8 for the child classes. Classes are approximately 2-3 hours long starting at 10:30AM. The cost for each class is $48 with a $15 materials fee. If you are unable to make the class, then we will forward your fee to another class in the future. The class size is limited to seven people, so sign up soon.
