This class is being offered virtually.
This class takes you all the way back to the origin of bread. Flatbreads have been around since humans first picked wheat off the stalk and decided to grind it and heat it. In this class we’ll make whole wheat tortillas*, za'atar bread, and einkorn naan; and we’ll demonstrate how to make a proper matzo . We'll teach you everything you need to know to make these versatile, full-flavored flatbreads.
You'll leave the BAKE! class with our recipes, the knowledge to recreate them at home, and all the flatbreads you made in class.
*We use lard in this one, but if that doesn't work with your dietary needs we can substitute butter. Just let us know ahead of time.*
* Please note, there are some specialty flours (Einkorn and True North) that are needed for this class, both of which are available for purchase in the Flatbread Flour Kit and in the Bakehouse Bakeshop. If you'd like more information before signing up for the class, please email [email protected] and we'll send you the information.
What our guests have to say about this class:
These breads are amazing! I loved them all so much! The only difficulty with the class is deciding which one to make first. —Dana Y.

My Weigh Kitchen Scale
A scale is the perfect way to take the guesswork out of your measuring, but not all scales are created equal. The My Weigh KD-8000 is one of our favorites, and it's the same version of the scale our instructors use during BAKE! Classes. We like it because it weighs accurately down to 1 gram/0.05 oz, which means even small measurements will be precise. It also has a Baker's Math function that lets you calculate percentages of other ingredients in a recipe based on the total weight of your flour—a great way to figure out your dough's hydration, or to scale a recipe up or down!
The scale is battery-powered (but comes with an AC adapter if you'd rather have it plugged in) and has a weight capacity of up to 8000 grams/17.62 lb. It features a backlit LCD readout with a protective cover, and a removable platform for easy cleaning. The price includes ground shipping.
Flatbread Flour Kit
Use what we use in our Flatbreads Around the World class! This kit contains 1# of our freshly milled einkorn flour, 2.5# of our True North flour, and 2 ounces of Za'atar, a Middle Eastern spice blend from Épices de Cru. The price includes ground shipping.
