Regional French Breads & Unique Shapes

June 16, 2022

- $450.00

June 16th, 2022 @ 7:30 am

Join us for this one-day workshop to learn about some regional French bread and their unique shapes.

France is a country that produces over 300 types of cheeses, therefore, there would have to be at least 80 different types of bread to pair with the cheeses!

In this workshop, you will have the opportunity to learn how to mix 5 different types of bread dough and bake 10 different shaped breads.

Our workshop will transport you to the Languedoc-Roussillon region in the Southeast of France, for the Pain de Beaucaire and Pain de Lodève.  Next, it’s off to the Auvergne region in Central France, for the Tourte de Seigle (Rye Miche) and the Pain de Meteil. To learn about unique bread shapes, you will be transported to the Rhȏne-Alpes/Burgundy region for the Couronne Lyonnaise (crown), Fer a Cheval (horse shoe), and Le Fendu (split). In addition to those shapes, you will also learn to shape the Couronne Bordelaise (crown) from L’Aquitaine region, and the Charleston from the Languedoc-Roussillon region in the Southeast of France.

This is a hands-on class so we will be spending the entire day in the bread production lab. After traveling to the many different areas of France, you will return home with a bag full of freshly baked bread that you can share with family and friends. Make sure to stock up on cheese and wine
