The Fundamentals – Dough Making
Want to be a better cook? Wondering where to start? This is our Fundamental Series.
Knife Skills, Incredible Eggs, Dough Making, and Basics of Sauce Making are all important to understand in order to create a delicious meal. These basics and more will be covered in our “Fundamentals” classes, taught by our Chef Barbara Sowatsky, and for that reason we have sprinkled these techniques throughout the series for what good is a sauce if there is nothing to smother.
Dough Making: What is the purpose of kneading? Is my dough too wet or too tough? Why does it need to rest? This class will focus on what to look for when making basic bread and tart dough. You will make a pizza dough that is versatile enough to make not only pizza, but quick flat breads and focaccia. You will make a classic tomato sauce (another mother sauce) to adorn your pizza. For desserts, we will make a Crostata – a free form pie using the best fruit of the season. Easy Pizza Dough; Marinara Sauce; Potato Proscuitto Pizza; Margherita Pizza; Flakey Tart Dough; Apple Crostata; and Easy Forcaccia all to be enjoyed with wine.
