Bread Is Basic to Life and Life Together: Italian Christmas Bread Class
November 14 @ 6:00 pm$39 - $44
Move over fruitcake — panettone is coming! Panettone is a traditional dome-shaped Italian Christmas bread, sweetened with sugar and studded with fruit or candied fruits. The class will introduce you to this specialty bread by tasting a finished loaf and by mixing up dough to take home to bake. During class time we also will explore the meanings and traditions of holiday breads from various countries and cultures. Bread is basic to life and basic to life together, especially when we gather as families and communities in celebration. The class is taught by Russ Hanson, an artisan bread baker, bread aficionado, and proud grandfather, and by Rev. Wendy Ward, a retired minister and willing artisan bread taster.
