Tyler Carpenter, our bread-lover friend from neighboring Abby Jane Bakeshop, is coming to the mill to teach you how to make classic, French country style baguettes! From his years of experience in acclaimed artisanal bakeries in Austin and beyond, as well as time traveling and eating in France, Tyler has a wealth of knowledge & creativity to share with you in this class all about the baguette.
For this class, Tyler will be sharing a dough recipe and method to produce two baguettes within three hours, so you can take your recipe home and use it to your heart's content for any dinner or cheese board that just wouldn't be complete without a crusty & airy baguette friend! In class, you will start from the bottom of a recipe, mixing a dough with a unique and flavorful blend of carefully selected BSM flours. Tyler will include what flour choices work best for a baguette, as well as creative ways to incorporate specialty flours and whole wheats in your dough. He will walk you through the resting, rising, and shaping processes, as well as provide demos for more advanced applications of the baguette craft. This means that within class, you will master a basic, yet elevated baguette recipe & method, and leave with some techniques and ideas to inspire your baking at home. This class is suitable for beginner to intermediate, and even advanced home bakers. All levels are welcome and can gain something from this class!
Featured flours in this class will include our Rouge de Bordeaux, Big Country, and Wrens Abruzzi Rye! Get excited!
During class, we will provide some elegant snacking opportunities (carnivore & vegetarian-friendly options available 😉). Think: butter & cheese options galore from local & specialty purveyors!
BYOB is fine by us for participants 21+ 🥂
