I did something last Friday that I never, ever thought I would do. I took a private baking class. Yeast has alluded my feeble attempts on several occasions. When offered this opportunity to learn something that had stumped me, I jumped at the offer.When I walked into the kitchen, I knew I was in the hands of a born teacher. There were ingredients sitting out in perfect order. And two freshly baked boules of bread. It was a thorough kinesthetic experience. Seeing, smelling, and tasting before the lesson began. Then hands on instruction with verbal evaluation. Honestly, this recipe and it’s methods guarantees success but having a natural teacher who guided me through each phase made all of the difference.This is not the last cooking class I intend to take from Janet Oliver. – D
