KEEP IN MIND THE LIVESTREAM WILL ALSO BE RECORDED AND CAN BE VIEWED AT ANYTIME AFTER THE LESSON Perfect, for if you are unable to make it at the scheduled time Class will include recipe slide, INTERACTIVE BREAD FORMULA SPREADSHEET, & shopping and equipment lists for reference Bread making has become one of Chef Joe’s passions and rightfully so - his focaccia and breads have become almost as popular and well known as his pasta. Spend the afternoon learning the ins and outs of his basic bread technique, and how to repurpose the same dough as pizza. DON’T WORRY, NONE OF THE RECIPES OR DOUGHS USE A SOURDOUGH STARTER, AND CAN ALL BE MADE WITH INSTANT YEAST. This class will function differently than previous live streams due to the time consuming nature of bread. Chef Joe prefers a long, slow fermentation and gluten development that spans over the course of three days. Obviously this would not translate into a cook-along style lesson. So instead Chef Joe will have the dough prepared in various stages to demonstrate the different techniques and times of the bread making process. During the down time - there will be an open forum Q&A discussing various aspects of bread making. The recipe page will include detailed instructions, as well as, a FORMULA SPREADSHEET. Learning and understanding baker’s percentages is an invaluable tool when baking bread. Chef Joe has taken all the mathematics out of the equation, and created an interactive spreadsheet that automatically calculates ingredient amounts based on the changing percentages - perfect for tinkering with recipes and adapting recipes to different wheats and climates. Not only will the lesson go over baker’s percentages, the different wheat varieties, and the basics of bread making, but Chef Joe will also demonstrate the recipes for turning the bread into a pan-style focaccia pizza. -- Please don't hesitate to reach out to Chef Joe with any questions you may have throughout your cooking journey! Upon reserving your space, you will receive a private link to the recipe cards and a private link to the livestream IMMEDIATELY. Be sure to check your spam folder and be on the lookout! --
