If you want to make better bread, this is the class for you.

Roll up your sleeves and dive into the basics of kneading, shaping, and baking with the amazing Abby Love.

Understanding a little of the science behind bread-baking improves your chances of making a delicious and successful loaf every time, so plan on taking home some chemistry knowledge too!

Things to look forward to:

  • Learn the difference between stone-milled and store-bought flours
  • Have an opportunity to work with our own fresh flours, stone-milled right here at Barton Springs Mill
  • Tour the mill

Abby is amazing!

This experience was really incredible. Abby is so knowledgable and articulate and so generous. I learned so much and it was great fun to use my brain in a totally different way. I'm such a big fan of both Abby and Barton Springs Mill. I hope to take many more classes in such a beautiful setting.

Awesome class everything I hoped for

Great class covers a lot! And you leave with bread 😁

Noreen Williams
Fun bread bake!!!

Really enjoyed the class. Abby was very personable and knowledgeable. Being a first timer I learned a lot . That being said I got confused trying to keep the preparation steps in order. I thinks if the written instructions could have clearer(accurate - oven temps) - step by step and coordinated with the actual class I wouldn't have been confused. Especially with us beginners. Once I have more experience in bread making I would definitely take another class.

I am pleased that Barton Springs Mill still supplies this traditional regional rice. Once a common staple, this rice is hard to find in specialty restaurants let alone grocery stores. Thanks for keeping this product readily available for those of us who love the taste of down- home Southern cooking.
