Since the onset of industrial scale milling of grain, the taste of most widely distributed flour has been neutral to bland, a blank canvas used to develop structure or showcase other flavors. In this one day class, we will look back towards an older, and now re-emerging, idea in baking: that different flours have their own nuanced and complex flavors to offer.

Using locally grown and milled whole grains, we will make puff pastry and shortbreads that explore the different flavors and textures of a variety of various wheats, as well as rye, buckwheat, and more.

Guided by instructor Brennan Johnson, participants will have the chance to make pastries with flours of their own choosing, as well as decide on which additions and toppings to pair with their doughs. Pastries will be plentiful, and can be sampled at the end of class and taken home for later enjoyment.

Please bring water/snacks, as there are no food facilities at the school.
