The Basics of Bread-Baking Retreat


San Francisco, California
May 3–5, 2019

This three-day retreat kicks off with an exclusive bakery tour of San Francisco that’s led by editor-in-chief Brian Hart Hoffman before heading to the beautiful, light-filled kitchens of San Francisco Cooking School to learn your new lineup of core bread doughs that you can dress up or down.

A list of go-to bread recipes should be in every home baker’s repertoire. During the two-day class, taught by James Beard Award-winning pastry chef Nicole Plue, you’ll learn how to make and shape classic loaves, dinner rolls, hamburger buns, pizza dough, and bagels. And since you’re in San Francisco, how could we not bake sourdough? A rustic loaf and English muffins will show off this local flavor.

If you want to tackle bread-baking at home, this weekend is for you. You’ll watch every dough come together and get your hands in the bowl to learn the best techniques for home bakers. When you leave this workshop, recipes in hand, you’ll be equipped to bake bread in your home kitchen on a regular basis. In addition to new recipes and the confidence to bake them again and again, you’ll also learn ways to troubleshoot common pitfalls in your own kitchen.

Each day at San Francisco Cooking School includes morning coffee, lunch (with wine to celebrate your baking accomplishments!), and plenty of time to taste and talk about all things bread. So, roll up your sleeves, tie on your apron, and let’s bake.
