WORKSHOP DETAILS “Bread / Pizza / Italian specialties prepared with natural yeast – maia”

We will learn to prepare the basic dough, we will bake and we’ll taste Italian specialties prepared with “natural yeast”, yeast that Anglo-Saxons calls it “starter” or “sourdough”, the French calls it “levain” and our grandmothers called it “leaven” “lump” or “Maia” – depending on the country area they came from.
Bread and dough obtained like this, had an unmistakable flavor and aroma. Through this workshop and the smell of new baked bread will remind us of the bread baked in our childhood by our grandmothers in the countryside.
In the end, the participants will take the bread dough to bake it in the oven,will have recipes, instruction sheet and tools so they can begin immediately after the class to make their own bread whenever they want!




What say theHobby learner.

  • It was the first time I ever participated in such workshops. Before, I never thought I could be an artist, but the workshop I attended changed my opinion about myself and encouraged me to continue to do what I've learned. Now, I know how to makevarious things, that beautifies and cheer my house, or I can offer it as gifts. I met new colleagues and we all felt that the time spent together, learning to do new things, was like a discharge, breaking the rhythm!

  • Atelierul de paine este in primul rand un curs unic pe care nu l-am regasit nicaieri! Ma tenta sa imi fac painea acasa, insa ma cam intimida subiectul. A fost un curs practic si placut, pentru ca m-am relaxat muncind, cu mainile in faina, apa si drojdie. Cel mai mare castig? Acum pot sa pregatesc rapid painea acasa! Dupa curs, am hotarat sa devin brutarul familiei. Cu siguranta o rupere de ritm fata de stilul meu zilnic de viata, care m-a incarcat de energie!

  • First of all, the Bread Workshop is a unique course, nowhere to be found but here! I was tempted to make my bread at home, but I was kind of intimidated by the subject. It was a practical and pleasant workshop, because I could relax while working, with my hands in flour, water and yeast. The biggest gain? Now I can quickly prepare bread at home! After the workshop, I decided to become the family baker. Definitely breaking the rhythm of my daily life style, that energized me!
