Baking classes at Firebrand Artisan Breads

Baking has certainly come back into fashion in the last few years. There are plenty of baking shows on television these days, and you really can’t beat home cooked bread and pastries. While store bought baked goods are always delicious, when you bake your own, your home is filled with delicious smells, and there’s nothing quite like a slice of freshly baked bread, smothered in real butter when the bread is still warm from the oven. Baking your own bread can also save you money too. So how about learning to bake at Firebrand Artisan Breads?

Small classes for the ultimate learning experience

The baking courses at Firebrand are really something special. They’re fully hands on, so while you’re being taught, you’ll actually be making bread or pretzels too! Each course takes on just eight students, so you’ll get plenty of help and attention. You’ll learn such a lot during your two hour lesson, and the best part of it? You’ll get to take home what you’ve baked – yummy!

There are two different types of course, why not try them both? One focuses on baking bread, while the other will teach you how to make pretzels. You’ll be taught by expert baker and co-founder of Firebrand, Colleen Orlando. What Colleen doesn’t know about baking, really isn’t worth knowing!
