Program Overview

For new and seasoned bakers alike, experience the delight of baking in our outdoor wood-fired oven. In this two hour course, students will be introduced to baking bread and using a wood fired oven. Each student will get to bake carta di musica (thin wafer bread) and focaccia while exploring the history and science of bread baking.
