Artisan Bread-Making

I don’t know what it is about Fall, but it’s essentially bread making season for me. I’m the first to admit I’m not the most patient person, but when it comes to bread making, I love the process.

Granted that love comes with actually understanding the principles of bread making. The very first bread book I ever bought was Peter Reinhart’s The Bread Baker’s Apprentice. And to this day, it’s still one I refer to. With that, I wanted to share this Artisan Bread-Making class he heads up at Craftsy. The class will introduce you to bread-making techniques that go beyond the recipes. He covers the 12 stages of bread making, the trade secrets for measuring, mixing, proofing and baking six different types of bread, including supple French bread, rich marble rye and a sweet chocolate babka. You’ll also learn to balance time, temperature and ingredients to create delicious, fresh breads in your own kitchen.

So why an online class? Here’s why these Craftsy classes:

  1. It’s way cheaper, like $39.99 cheap—that is a bargain!
  2. Stuck on a certain step—no worries—you have the ability to watch what you over and over again.
  3. Can’t remember a certain step—instant replay is a few taps away.
  4. At Craftsy there’s a community of people with all varying skill levels to answer questions and share tips for success.
  5. My favorite part is being able to watch these on-line classes at my pace.

    Can you help me? I clicked on the link & it brings me to the signup page for the class but I don’t see anything about a give-away contest & the price of the course is $39.99. BTW, like you, I also own Reinhart’s “Bakers Apprentice” it’s one of my favorite baking books. Thanks!

    So true, there is nothing quite as satisfying as making your own artisan bread. Peter Reinhart’s Bread Baker’s Apprentice rocks! I will have to check him out on Craftsy. I baked and blogged my way through the entire book (all 43 loaves!) in 2009!

    I’m having the same problem as Kathy. The signup page comes up with no giveaway and the price is $39.99. I’d love to take this course… it sounds fantastic!

    I so agree with you! I love baking bread(gluten free) in the fall and everything’s so cozy and romantic!

    I just bough that book within the last year and I LOVE it. So useful and practical.
