A Stir The Pots Post

A class with levain and Jeffrey

Cimg1618This past weekend I visited Norwich Vermont, home of The King Arthur flour baking company and Master baker Jeffrey Hamelman. since interviewing Jeffrey and having  previously met him at a bbga function where I had him sign my book, I promised myself to go and try some of his classes, my efforts at learning bread were good so far but I felt the need to get some more answers and see the man in action! “Bread rules, people drool!” Jeffrey reminded us as we loaded bread that was maturing before our eyes, “which is ready, the levain or the seeded boules?” We learned the differences in technique as well as timing, slashing but most of all to respecting the primary element, the bread!Cimg1604
Thanks again to Jeffrey for inspiring, my fellow classmates, and King Arthur for having a great teacher and operation!
