Shameless plug for baking classes
As I have mentioned in earlier posts, I will be teaching classes at the Culinary Center of Kansas City during their Winter term, which begins in November. And yes, I do have a pecuniary interest, so understand that this is a blatantly commercial post. ;-)
The Culinary Center's web page can be found here . You can click on the Register for Classes button at the lower left corner of the page to get the schedule for all classes being offered through February 2013. It is laid out as a series of calendar pages, starting with October 2012. Just scroll down to see what is offered on a particular date. By the way, I had nothing to do with the Alton Brown references in the copy that describes each course.
Here are the classes that I will teach:
November 3 - Course #1838, Breakfast Breads. This course will cover Sourdough English Muffins and Kolaches.
December 4 - Course #1874, Festive Christmas Breads. This course will feature Stollen and a Bavarian Christmas Braid.
January 19 - Course #1916, Junior Chefs Breadmaking: Rolling in the Dough. This class is for (unaccompanied!) 9-14 year old students and will cover Honey Whole Wheat Bread and Savory Muffins.
January 25 - Course #1925, Full Day Breadmaking Workshop. This class will focus on rye breads; specifically, Rustic Pumpernickel (from ITJB, thanks Stan!), Eric's Fave Rye (thank you, Eric!), and Vort Limpa.
February 16 - Course #1959, Li'l Kids in the Kitchen: Lets Learn to Bake. Students 5-8 years in age, accompanied by an adult, will learn about Cape Seed Bread and Savory Scones.
Some of the classes are already half-full, so sign up soon if any appeal to you. If you have friends in the KC area that you think might be interested, please share the information with them. There are, of course, a great many other classes that may also catch your eye.
This should be a lot of fun!
