Slow Food Presents…The Science of Bread Making

Science of Bread MakingBread comes in thousands of forms, from fluffy brioche to dense Armenian lavash. They all begin the same way – a mixture of milled grains and liquids. But it is how we combine these basic ingredients that results in a bread with big airy crumbs or a heavy compact consistency. In this Slow Session we will explore the science of bread making with CIA trained baker and Slow Food board member Hannah Casparian. This is an excellent opportunity to perfect your bread making skills and expand your knowledge of the basics such as bread leaveners, gluten development, and rising times. You also get to sample some of the breads discussed and we will end with a Q&A.
