Bread-making course ?

johnnyboy Nov 27, 2008 01:46 PM

Does anyone know of a place offering bread-making classes ? I mean non-professionally. I know of a course at L'Académie Culinaire, but was looking for alternatives, since L'Académie's prices have soared into rip-off territory. French or english are fine.

    It's a ride, but King Arthur Flours in Vermont offers professional and non-professional classes.

      Give "Les Touilleurs" a call (google for it, it's on Laurier w. st), or maybe at that book store on Victoria (in westmount).

        It's not in Montreal... but I would suggest L'École du Pain at Bois-des-Fillion :


        It's 100$ for one day and you leave with tons of breads and croissants !

          Another good solution would be to order up #73 & #74 of The Art of Eating .The particular article is called "The Baguette" authored by Montrealer James McGuire ( ex Passe Partout ) His recipie is insanely easy and the final product stands up to anything Montreal produces.
          The Art of Eating is a must read for anyone who takes their food seriously. You may reach them at PO Box 242, Peacham , VT 05862 or call 1-800-495-3944
