Class Description: 

We’re firing up the ovens and getting ready for an interactive morning of baking fun with experienced instructor, Laura Thomsen. She'll get things started as she shares her impressive talents while teaching budding bakers (ages 9-14) how easy it is to make homemade classics like Buttermilk Scones (including variations to add some variety to this basic scone). They’ll also learn to make Chocolate Chip Muffins. What kid (or adult!) doesn’t love chocolate ‘cake’ for breakfast! They'll also learn to make yummy oatmeal streusel muffins. So good.

You’ll explore the basic techniques of baking, as they tie on an apron and work in small groups alongside Laura as she teaches the ins and outs of mixing, measuring, folding, and more while creating yummy baked goods.  Along the way, she'll emphasize the importance of accuracy in measuring and introduce every chef’s best friend—“mise en place”. 

Of course, there will be sampling, and the kids will leave with all the recipes and confidence to make fresh scones and muffins at home for their family to enjoy on New Year’s Day. A perfect fundamentals class for young cooks!
