Welcome to a brand-new series in our ever popular bread baking classes at A. Chef’s Cooking Studio!
Please note that we HIGHLY RECOMMEND you take at least two of our standard bread classes before joining us in this series as we will be moving quickly and we are assuming if you attend this series, you have a basic understanding of flour varietals, yeast development and kneading techniques.
So many of you have taken our bread classes and four-part Bread 101 series over the years, that it is with you, our bakers in mind, that we have created a new series of classes that will be specifically devoted to our repeat baking customers.
This series is for those of you who have taken at least three of our previous bread baking classes. In this series we will not focus so deeply on the basics such as trouble-shooting bread fails at home, yeast-killing temperatures, and gluten development. Instead, we will focus on honing our recipes with a few more advanced doughs, more advanced shaping techniques and will add an hour of class time so that we are free to allow for reasonable proof times, extra kneading, and shaping, and the ever important, second proof before baking.
In this series, we will have time to discuss any baking issues you have come across as you took the knowledge you gained from previous classes here, home. We can review and discuss cooking techniques, favorite equipment, and cookbooks.
As a student who has come repeatedly and gotten comfortable with the basics, these classes are designed to be a bit more casual, a bit of a bread-bakers-club if you will and we encourage open discussion and sharing about bread success and fails at home!
The classes as with all, can be taken as individual sessions, at $65.00 per session, but if you chose to do all three, we will offer a special price of $170.00 for three ($25.00 savings) and if you buy all three we will be offering a special bread baking tool for you as our gift on the first week.
Chef Greg and I hope you will consider this fun, very casual, new addition to our offerings, as we have discovered over the years, many of you are as addicted to bread-baking as we are!
Sign up today for all three sessions for just $170.00!

Friday June 4th
This recipe may be why I am a Chef Today. We can shape this in a classic braid or in a large loaf or mini loaves, and we can discuss which cheeses to add to make these very personal to our own tastes.
Friday June 11th
We will make our Studio Light Pumpernickel and create an amazing, filled bread with either pastrami or roast beef, sauerkraut if you like, homemade thousand island, and swiss cheese. The shaping options on this are many; we will discuss, and you will choose what you prefer.
Friday June 18th
Savory Babka with Cheese and Sundried Tomatoes (or pesto, or all….) – in this, our third week, we take our cheese-bread to the next level with an even more enriched dough, that yields us this tear-apart, crispy chewy bread you will adore. We will offer a few options on fillings so you can customize as you like.
Each week of this series builds on the previous week's lessons as we get into more and more advanced breads. You do not have to take each week, but if you are available, we highly recommend it. These four sessions will give you such a solid foundation, your home bread baking will improve and your confidence will rise! So will your dough!
New Smaller Class Size!
Two more classes available per week!
A Chef’s Cooking Studio is committed to offering our favorite classes with just a few changes based on all of our new concerns about large gatherings: We will now accept a maximum of 10 guests per class.
While our cancellation policy has never been focused on charging for illness, in these new times, we assure you that calling out the day of a class due to illness will not result in any fee.
Because we will be limiting our classes to such small numbers we do ask that you give ample notice of cancellations that are not illness related, allowing us the time we need to fill your space. Together we can make your cooking classes at A. Chef’s Cooking Studio as fun and educational (and delicious) as they have always been!
