After the Christmas Day festivities, you might find yourself in the mood for a civilized afternoon tea. Up your scone game with “Tea Breads, Yeasted and Quick” on December 28th or February 6th. If you’re looking for a sweet treat to serve at a New Year’s brunch, try “Sticky Fingers: Breakfast Buns” on December 29th, January 2nd, March 12th, or April 18th – you’ll take home some extra buns along with sticky fingers! Or try “Clamoring for Coffeecake” with a class on January 21st or April 17th.
Looking for something savory or more appropriate for dinner (although who’s to say sticky buns aren’t a satisfying dinner option)? Try “Far-flung Flatbreads” on January 2nd or April 10th for worldwide breads with toppings. In fact, make dinner for the family with “Family Night: Pizza to Go” or “Family Night: Enchiladas to Go.” These classes send participants off with dinner, salad, and dessert for four. For something a little fancier, spend a Sunday afternoon making winter tapas.
If you’re simply looking to enhance your bread-making skills, that’s easy, too! Try “Wholehearted Baking: Whole Wheat Breads” or “Whole-Grain Hearth Breads” for healthy options for your family. “Buns & Rolls, Sweet & Savory” will teach you the skills you need to make an easy weeknight side. “Beauty and the Baguette” will turn your lumpy, homemade baguettes into French look-alikes. There’s even an option for the gluten-free bread lovers among you; “Gluten-free Yeast Breads” will satisfy your cravings with wheat-free recipes and techniques for the perfect loaf.
Finally, if you just can’t satisfy your sweet tooth with plain old chocolate chip cookies, there are options for learning to bake patisserie-worthy desserts. Try “If the Choux Fits: Cream Puffs and Éclairs” for incredible looking and tasting treats. “New England Desserts” will be sure to please, and a gift certificate to attend this class would be a great welcome gift for anyone new to the Upper Valley. “Cake from Start to Finish” will make you the ultimate cake master for any occasion. Be sure to keep an eye out for holiday-themed cooking classes like “Valentine’s Day Cookie Decorating” on February 8th or “Easter Breads” on March 26th. Whenever you choose to indulge, you’ll be sure that the dessert is well crafted and worthy of indulgence!
No time to schedule a class? You can still master the art of baking with an online cooking class. Visit the King Arthur Flour website for a listing of inexpensive and instructive baking videos for your at-home use.
