Product Details

Homemade bread is one of the most rewarding projects a home cook can take on, and in this class, we'll prove just how rewarding it is. From taking the fear out of hand-kneading bread to making a calzone from scratch – which, by the way, will also equip you with the skills to make homemade pizza – this class is an excellent starting point for an aspiring bread baker. At the end of class, you will get to enjoy the calzone you've made and some focaccia too (there will be plenty of leftovers). You'll go home with a small loaf of white bread and some extras. 

Think this class would make a perfect gift? We do too – that's why we offer Cook School Gift Cards, for one or two guests, in paper and digital formats.

Why we love it

'It's never a fun experience to spend hours on a loaf that bakes into a frisbee. This class will troubleshoot common errors and ensure that a recipe's instruction to "knead" will never intimidate you again.'
