About this event

Fresh Yeast Workshop Series

Nothing beats the smell of freshly baked yeast bread! In this workshop series participants will learn the tricks to baking delicious breads with fresh yeast and explore how various spices can add that little something extra. The price of each workshop is $35.

Workshop#1- Sweet Rolls

Saturday June 5th, from 1-4pm

Participants will be guided through all the steps to create delicious, sweet rolls topped with a shortbread cookie spiced with vanilla, cinnamon, or cocoa. We will bake them in the wood-fired oven and participants will take their creations home! (Please bring along an apron, a large bowl and a food-safe plastic bag, such as a grocery bag.)

Space is limited. Tickets must be purchased in advance for all those attending.

Instructor: Anita Smith

Anita has been baking bread since her university days when she would knead dough to help relieve the stress of writing papers and exams. After retiring from teaching, she overheard her uncle’, he'd retired to Canada after working in California, lamenting that he couldn’t find any “real sourdough bread” in Canada.

Anita thought to herself, “how hard can it be?” and set out to learn how to bake that elusive loaf. She researched sourdough techniques, bought books, took online courses, attended workshops, and even worked in a local artisanal bakery. Today her uncle loves her San Francisco sourdough bread and she now bakes bread several times a week for a host of loyal customers.

During the pandemic Anita decided to grow beyond her sourdough skills and earned her Artisan Bread Certificate from George Brown College. You can take the teacher out of the school, but this teacher is always learning!
