Loaves of bread

Artisan Sourdough Bread class offered

Posted January 22, 2018

Plymouth School District Community Education & Recreation is offering a new class called Artisan Sourdough Bread.

Participants are invited to put bread’s bad reputation to rest and create healthy homemade versions of store-bought favorites, by making the fermented bread of our grandparents with a live sourdough starter and hands-on mixing, kneading and flavoring.

Those in the class will sample a variety of loaves, and enjoy a complimentary bowl of homemade soup. A base dough will be provided, and participants will leave with four loaves at various stages in the bread-making process, one starter of sourdough, and step-by-step instructions.

Participants should bring a large mixing bowl for dough transport, two loaf pans (9”x5”x2.5”), ingredients to flavor their loaves (such as raisins, cinnamon, flax seeds, cheese, pesto, sun-dried tomatoes, etc.), and an apron (optional).

Class will meet with Kate Pearce, wellness coach and heirloom gardener, from 5:30 to 8 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 15 at Plymouth High School, 125 Highland Ave.; fee is $45 until Feb. 2, then $55.

There’s also still room in the following:

  • From the Garden – Infused Oils, Salves & Lotions: Learn to make herbal-infused oils with plants from your garden. Make and take home an infused oil, a salve, and a lotion, as well as recipes and an understanding of their therapeutic applications. Class will meet with instructor Linda Conroy, owner of Moonwise Herbs, from 6 to 8:30 p.m. Monday Feb. 5; fee is $36 until Jan. 26 (then $46), which includes all supplies.
  • Mural Masterpieces: All students in grades two through six – not just those at Fairview Elementary School – are invited to have fun, be artistic and be a part of a creative team. Students will work together to create a large theme-based mural for the school, plus a smaller one to take home. Class will meet with art teacher Field Lehmann from 4 to 5 p.m. Tuesdays from Feb. 6 to March 20 in the Fairview Art Room; fee is $25 until Jan. 26  (then $35).
