If you have tried making French lean bread (baguette) at home, you would understand why they say 'the simplest breads are the most difficult to make' is true. After months of practice and fine tuning, we are very excited to share with you our French lean bread recipe that balances time, flavour and texture. Making French lean bread at home might be easier than you think!
In this class you will learn:
- how to make a poolish
- how to enhance the extensibility of your dough
- how to optimise and control fermentation at home
- how to shape a short baguette

You will take home 3 loaves, a couche (a linen cloth for preparing dough) and a baguette flipping board home.
This class is suitable for experienced bakers who have made bread with flour and yeast before, we recommend you to take our Intro to Bread Making class first if you don't have any bread making experience.
