Join Marylouise for a class that tackles a French tradition and an English tradition:
French Bread – how to have fun learning the art of bread making. Get your hands “dirty”, feel the dough, knead it and work it into shapes. Delicious bread is the outcome.
Cream Scones and Fig-Pecan Scones – how to make scones in 10-15 minutes, excluding baking. Cream scones are fairly easy and the fig scones have a more difficult dough but the dough is user friendly.
The old adage of “let’s break bread together” will show off your new or refined skills to friends and family.
