Attended: Rustic Breads: Sourdough Boules, Loaves and Preserves


It was a fun class. Very informative and hands on the whole time. Clemence is is not only knowledgeble but humorous and very passionate about bread baking. In the course of the day we made several different kinds of breads, chocolate chip cookies that were the best I have ever had and we made butter from heavy cream that we spread on the bread we baked, stawberry jam and it was fantastic.

Attended: Canning 101: Making Jams, Preserves and Pickles


This class was so fun! I have been wanting to learn about canning for years and this class was perfect. Not only did we learn about canning jams but Chef Clemence also taught us about preserving lemons and making butter. I've already signed up for the bread making course!

Attended: Bread 101: Simple Breads from Scratch


I loved the class. Clemence and Calista were informative ,humurous helpful and lovely. We made 4 or 5 different breads that turned very well. I can’t wait to try to make them again on my own. I will in the future take the class where you make sourdough starter and breads. We tasted one that was made the day before, it was sooo very yummy. Thank you
