Hello everyone. 

  I am hoping someone can help me.

I am in need of taking some artisan bread classes.

I am looking to build a commercial kitchen to bake breads and pastries out of for wholesale and retail. 

I have found a few classes in Portland and Seattle but I am not sure who is the best?

Would like to stay as close to Idaho as possible.

Thanks for any info I can get.

The courses at the San Francisco Baking Institute definitely have the strongest reputation of anything on the west coast.

In the Northwest, I've heard good things about some of the short courses offered at the Pearl Bakery here in Portland. But those are like half day seminars, not even close to as in depth as what SFBI offers.

Floyd, Thanks for reminding me my "Low Hostess light" is on. I see you have a new advertiser going after my sweet tooth!

Are you talking about a banner showing up here? I don't control what shows up... blame it on Google!

Sorry I thought you had knowledge of placement. There was a Hostess Cupcakes banner that showed cupcakes. My favorite. I send a case of Twinkies to my cuz in Iraq every month along with some real food items.

The San Fransisco baking co. also does consultations for those opening retail bakeries. I think that would be your best bet.
