Meet chef Zoë François and learn about the variety of delicious breads you'll be making in this class, then dive right into mixing up the master no-knead dough and baking your first crusty loaf. Along the way, you'll learn about different baking surfaces and some other handy tools for making this easy and delectable bread.
The master dough recipe is large enough to make four 1-pound loaves, so you'll have many opportunities to experiment with variations: an olive-stuffed ring-shaped couronne, a cheesy boule baked in a Dutch oven, and an herbed loaf cooked in a slow cooker. Zoë shows you how!
It's true -- you can make sublime baguettes and bâtards (essentially, big baguettes) at home, as well as crunchy rolls and elegant pain d'epi, which are loaves that are shaped like stalks of wheat. It's all in the shaping, stretching, cutting and folding. Zoë walks you through each step as you create show-stopping loaves.
Zoë shows how a fluffy, crusty sandwich loaf is easy to make, and tastes even better when you incorporate diced apples and cinnamon sugar! For weeknight dinners and celebrations alike, you can make pull-apart dinner buns or herbed crescent rolls in just minutes.
Indian naan, or flatbread, might be the quickest artisan bread around. Make plain or filled naan with Zoë's guidance, using a covered skillet to mimic the environment of the Indian tandoor oven. Then roll out the master dough into pita and watch it magically puff up in the oven. Serve it soft or let it cook until crisp and use it to create a unique and tasty salad bowl!
You'll love making classic Neapolitan pizza at home with Zoë's easy method and no-cook sauce. Learn to toss the dough like a pro for a thin crust, or layer it in a pan for a thicker Sicilian-style pizza to feed a crowd. You can even make a crisp, cracker crust topped with apples, pine nuts and honey for a gourmet treat!
Stuffed breads, cinnamon buns and caramel rolls, oh my! Zoë will wow you with how easy it is to create a gorgeous braided loaf stuffed with spinach and feta, then show you how to assemble colorful pinwheels filled with sweet cream cheese and jam. You'll be a star at the breakfast table with her sweet, nutty cinnamon buns that are as decadent as they are simple to make.
