Bread Baking Course, FYI

There might be Forum members close to Toronto who would be interested in signing up for my bread baking course, but class size is limited to six, so everybody gets to be hands-on, and three spots are filled. Anyway, FYI. I'll set up another time, probably in June, for another session. The workshop days are long and intense, but fun, nonetheless.

Two-Day Wood-Fired Bread Workshop
Saturday, April 14th & Sunday, April 15th
7 AM to 6 PM both days
Tuition: $500
This is an intensive, hands-on course from Jim Wills of Mary G's Artisan Breads that will get you started making artisan breads or hone the skills you already have, show you the magic of wood-fired baking, change the way you think about the bread you eat, and give you a hearty taste of the breads you’ve made with your own hands. Class size is limited to six, and three spots are already filled.
