How to Bake Bread
Reviewed by Lynn H. on 2/19/2019
Not only was the class very informative, but it was a lot of fun. Our instructor, Max, was delightful and to my surprise it even included a light lunch of our own homemade calzone and a spinach salad. It has really given me the confidence I needed to bake more yeast breads. Already looking for more classes to take!
