Hello there everyone! Happy Sunday! We wanted to write today to tell you about the most awesome experience that we had yesterday! We went to a bread-making class at Midwest Culinary Institute at Cincinnati State! They have Creations Classes http://www.cincinnatistate.edu/students/calendars/mci-calendar that the two of us go to every now and then. We really wanted to try the breads class and then share some of the fun with you.
We were so excited when we walked in the classroom. It had individual workspaces set up for each guest. All of the ingredients were measured out for us and the recipes and a Kroger gift card were on our workspaces!
We got the opportunity to bake a ciabatta, 5 grain, and a semolina bread. We learned how to make the starters with premium ingredients & how to use the industrial mixers.
We ended up taking home 18 total loaves of bread. Chef and his assistants packed up ingredients for us to make all of the loaves again at home. They even sent us home with two different compound butters to try on some toasty pieces. We were so grateful for all the work that Chef put into the class. Plus a bonus is getting to know the supplies needed for bread proofing and baking.
Chef Van Fleet taught the class and was so very gracious and kind. He is talented, knowledgeable and an expert! This class was more than informational. We took home recipes, ingredients, and BREAD. Chef even made us an amazon wishlist in case there was anything we wanted to look up supplies-wise from class. This class really was beneficial for us: body, mind, soul and belly!
