RYE BAKING CLASSES WITH STANLEY GINSBERG
Join Stanley Ginsberg, award-winning author of Inside the Jewish Bakery and The Rye Baker for a three-hour master class on the mysteries of rye. Learn how to bake traditional north German and Baltic rye breads, explore rye’s unique chemistry and become familiar with some of the centuries-old techniques Europe’s master bakers developed to tame the unruly grain.
Each class is a hands-on session lasting 3 hours, during which we’ll bake two breads — a German sourdough rye (the sponge will be prepared the night before) and a yeast-leavened Baltic sweet-savory bread. Be prepared to work hard and learn rye’s mysteries.
Classes are held in leading artisan bakeries all across America. Space is limited, so register early! Cost: $150
