In this class, Frank Petrarca will teach you how to craft simple yet delicious loaves of Italian bread from scratch. Frank will share his family recipe, some yeast and plenty of pro tips for making great bread. This is a hands-on class, and you’ll be working with a very versatile dough that can be a simple home style loaf or fancy seeded free-form loaf. Bring one or two 9-inch loaf pans so you can take your bread home to bake. You’ll learn all about kneading, proofing, shaping & baking to make beautiful loaves every time. If you have never baked bread before this session is a great place to start and you can build on this skill to take on more challenging breads.
A large clear plastic bowl with a tight-fitting lid for your dough (8-10 cup).
Attendees can mix their dough in class or take the ingredients home to bake at their convenience.”
About Frank “The Bread Guy” Petrarca
Frank is a longtime customer of ours and has been baking breads for over 32 years. He’s entered his bread into competitions, but really just prefers to share his passion of bread baking by teaching others. For the last 3 years he has been putting on bread-baking demonstrations at the Indiana State Fair, which have garnered fantastic responses from those who attend. It’s his goal to provide up close & personal lessons so folks can craft great bread, create memories and perhaps inspire others to bake too!
