As one of the building blocks of agrarian society, ancient civilizations have been baking bread for millenia. Over 10,000 years ago wheat and barley were among the first plants to be domesticated, providing nutrition to far more people than was previously possible. Bread gave rise to human society as we know it.
Bread's integrity has taken a beating in this age of the Atkin's Diet and gluten allergies, but bread making remains ubiquitous in cultures around the world. As we see GMOs infiltrate our food supply and grain production hastily marching toward monopolization in the United States, it's high time we take control of what goes into this dietary staple. Get back to your roots and relearn the ancestral art of baking bread in our workshop!
Professional Chef Maggie Cattell will give you a broad but easy understanding of the many forms bread can take. In this hands-on workshop, Hayden will guide students through the process of making a simple yeast roll, a delectable brioche, a to-die-for sourdough, and of course, a starter.
Chef Maggie Cattell is a graduate of the California Culinary Academy. She has worked in Paris with renowned Chef Christian Constant at restaurant Le Violon d'Ingres (one Michelin Star) as well as with Chef Douglas Keane at his Cyrus Restaurant (two Michelin Stars) in Healdsburg, California, where she worked in both pastry and savory. Maggie teaches private and public cooking classes, consults in sustainable food practices, and works to excite and educate the community about healthy food and cooking.
