King Arthur bread courses - feedback needed
I am thinking of attending some of the King Arthur bread classes, and I'd like some feedback from those of you who may have attended them previously. I'm a fairly experienced home baker who cooks both sourdough and yeast breads, mainly with a high percentage of whole grains, so I am looking for a class to advance my skills rather than a beginners class.
The two classes I'm considering are:Beauty & The Baguette
At last! Tame the beastly baguette with this hands-on class to help you make the best possible baguettes in your home oven. Learn how to work with a pre-ferment to achieve the maximum flavor. During the course you will mix a traditional baguette dough, get experience shaping and slashing loaves and learn steaming techniques for home ovens.$90.00Pain au Levain with James MacGuire
Join us for a master class on this classic French loaf with renowned baker James MacGuire. The class draws on Chef MacGuire’s recent article on pain au levain in The Art of Eating, and each student will go home with a deeper understanding of the history, principles and method of producing the best possible loaf as well as their own crusty breads.$175.00
Thanks in advance for any input.
