Morning Session: Recipes, Measuring & Weighing – Following recipes, in both savory and sweet cooking, is often paramount to success. We’ll discuss how to read a recipe and how to use both the ‘scoop and level’ technique of measuring along with weighing both wet and dry ingredients.

Bread Baking & Shaping – Doughs mixed earlier in the day will be formed and shaped by the students into rustic loaves and rolls. Other ingredients will be used to make chicken salad and tuna salad for small sandwiches to take home.
Making Ice Cream – Class will end with the production of homemade ice cream as a reward for a job well done.
