“We will be making bread, pizza, pasta and all of those things we miss when cutting regular flour out,” according to the class description.
This class is one of several workshops in the program, which differ from recipe-based classes in that they focus on a particular culinary technique or type of cooking. Others will include cooking fish, pickling, cheese-making, knife skills and putting up preserves.
No special equipment is required for the workshops taught by Arlene Brokaw, the farm’s resident cheesemaker, or any other class in the program.
“It’s designed to be replicated in your home kitchen,” Wood said.
