Local grains ROCK. We want you to try them, befriend them, and make delicious bread at home or in your bakery!
Unfortunately, due to the presence of the Uninvited Guest, we have cancelled all remaining classes for 2020. We look forward to seeing you on the flip side!
LEARN WITH US
We offer classes for bakers of all levels and experience.
Teaching is a big part of what we do. We began offering classes in partnership with OGRIN, the Organic Growers Research and Information Sharing Network, and GrowNYC. Since then, we've been offering more classes, and new classes, every year.
There is no time like now to start, and there is always plenty to learn.
Gift certificates available.
