Peter Reinhart On Bread

by Coltrane

Peter Reinhart gave a highly entaining and informative class on bread, April 17 at Sur La Table in Kirkland.  He signed copies of his new book “Artisan Breads Everyday.”  (As well as many of his other books.)

During the class he referenced this 15-minute clip on

Here’s his “stretch and fold technique” on Youtube, and this is his “Shaping a Boule” (French Bread) technique.  Both were presented during the class at Sur La Table.

It’s not a Peter Reinhart post without reference to the Bread Baker’s Apprentice.  If you’re at all interested in baking bread, buy the book.  You won’t be disappointed.

And thanks to Peter for such a funny and engaging class.

    Heck, it was one of the best cooking classes I have ever taken – and this coming from someone who has had no interest in bread baking at all.
