Virtual Mini Mambo Italiano

**Please note that this class takes place over two days.**

During this online, interactive class via Zoom, we’ll take you on a brief bread-making journey through part of Italy. (This is the mini version of our popular Mambo Italiano: Italian Breads hands-on baking class.) You’ll experience fresh-baked Italian bread made from scratch including Zingerman's Bakehouse recipes for Focaccia and Sicilian Sesame Semolina. 

We'll cover all the essential techniques, including finding out what in the world a poolish is and why you need it to make these loaves of bread, how to handle yeasted doughs, proper kneading, shaping your loaves, finding out when your loaves are ready to bake, and more

We can’t wait to (virtually!) bake with you! With your registration, you will receive the student guide, a grocery and equipment list, and any associated information for the class. You will also receive a link to the Zoom invite. This is your invitation into the class! Consider adding it to your Calendar.

We encourage you to look through the recipes at this time and the list of ingredients and equipment you will need to have handy in order to plan your trip to the store and have your class run smoothly. 

Day of Class

  • We ask that you have your ingredients out and ready to scale before class. We can all scale together, just make sure to have ingredients accessible. 

  • Please have a look at the equipment list to make sure you’ve got everything handy. 

  • While not required by BAKE! Law, we highly, highly, highly recommend that you use a scale to ensure the best results and accuracy when baking. 

  • On the day of your class, gather your ingredients, and make yourself comfortable. Expect to see your instructor ready to invite you in 5-10 minutes before class starts. We will do (with some tweaking!) carry on our class as we do our in-person public classes...but this time, you’ll bring your own apron! 

General Thoughts

We understand and expect that we will all work at different speeds, and ask that you be courteous of this in our classes. We have limited our class size to 12 (households, that is, we know there may be more than one of you participating in each home) to ensure that everyone gets the attention and help that they need. 

Since this is a new format for us, we’re learning as we go along! Any feedback or suggestions you have can be sent to [email protected]
