This five-day series explores the fundamentals of baking and pastry. This course is great for beginners as well as the experienced home baker. You’ll learn core techniques and guidelines that will make you a more accomplished and confident baker.
Because we are at a higher elevation this course naturally deals with high altitude baking. If you find it hard to adapt to baking at elevation you will find great use in this course as you learn about the chemistry and how ingredients interact with and impact each other.
What to Expect: Baking Series
Get ready for an in-depth culinary exploration. All hands on deck…you’ll help prepare the meal you eat. Your class will be fun and informative, with an in-depth and hands-on view of the subject matter at hand. Arrive on time and wear comfortable shoes: you’ll be on your feet much of the night. Please come prepared to enjoy a meal at the end of the class. We’ll serve a light meal with a glass of wine for lunch.
Due to the nature of our kitchens and that cooking is an inherently dangerous activity, Cook Street asks that all participants be over the age of 18. This is for your own peace of mind as well as for the comfort of our other guests. The exception to this policy is any of our Kids Class series, which are all-ages. Wine, Beer, and Cocktail classes require that participants are over the age of 21.
