The Shops at Harper's Point


Bread – it’s that time of year again!  Kathy Lehr is a bread authority.  She was mentored by French Chef Danielle Forrestier, trained with Jeff Hamelman, James McGuire, and Peter Reinhart. and she has been teaching cooking classes for 20 years.  Her recently released DVD, “Classic French Bread and More…” is a guide through the art of bread making.  Kathy is an expert when it comes to helping people understand the chemistry of bread making, build confidence and gain the ability to bake perfect breads any time!

We are so pleased to have Kathy back at Cooks’Wares for a three-day workshop at Harpers’ Point.  All classes are hands-on and will inspire you to make your own breads on a regular basis.  Students who have taken her previous classes here are baking up a storm, and will be waiting to sign up, so don’t hesitate.  Join Kathy to learn the creative art of bread making.

Three Day Bread Workshop

Mon April 3, Tue April 4, and Wed April 5

In this three-day progressive workshop, open to all levels of bakers, you will gain in-depth, hands-on experience and the confidence to bake a variety of incredible breads!  Kathy relays step by step techniques paired with much discussion of chemistry, thus eliminating the fear of bread making.  You will be working with straight method doughs as well as starter doughs.  You will be making pan breads as well as many hand-shaped loaves and braids.  The itinerary for the three days includes Classic French Bread, Brioche, Sweet Dough Braids, Sticky Buns, English Muffins, Roasted Red Pepper Bread, Challah, Pain de Campagne, Calzones, Russian Rye Bread, Biscuits and much more.  Each day, lunch will be incorporated into the class with the breads, and there will be a breakfast bread as well.

Please bring a chef’s jacket or apron, scale, plastic flexible scraper, medium sized bowl for your dough (all available at cooks’ wares), and brown lunch bags to take home your breads each day
