Bread is the most miraculous of foods and one of the most fascinating procedures created by man which clearly illustrates how the food we eat is an element in the natural food chain and not something found on supermarket shelves. We will focus on yeasts and a variety of bread making techniques.  A special focus on rising times, baking techniques and using the equipment you can find in your home.  We will also create our own sourdough starter that you can feed and element and if you are diligent, take home age into your own family patrimony that you pass down for generations. The lesson will conclude at the table enjoying our leavened creations accompanied by salumi, cheeses and the ubiquitous glass of wine.

Day 2

3 hours

  • simple and filled focacia
  • home oven pizza

Speaking about bread touches upon sensitive issues of Italian philosophy that seeks to harmoniously combine the pleasure of the table with wellness and sustainability. Sandwiches, pizza by the slice and panini are convenient, quick and the “small” portions give the illusion that it is not particularly fattening.  But when we think about the refined flour used that are made from wheat that has been treated with invasive methods, we begin to understand this is the root of so many food intolerances among us today. Learn quick and simple ways to make pizza, foccacia and other single rise tasty foods that you can make at home with the ingredients you choose so you can enjoy them with ease.
