Artisan Bread Baking with Peter Reinhart

Dear LocalHarvest Community,

What do ciabatta, focaccia, sprouted bagels and chocolate babka have in common? Besides being mouth-watering rustic breads, each is a delicious treat you can learn to make at home. This month, Craftsy shared with us two of Peter Reinhart's unbeatable artisan bread making classes, including the new Artisan Bread: Ancient and Sprouted Grains. With Peter's guidance, you'll learn more than just a bread recipe. You'll discover bread making step by step and understand how bread really works.

Through July 4th, Craftsy is offering LocalHarvest subscribers Chef Reinhart's Artisan Bread Making or Artisan Bread: Ancient and Sprouted Grains for the special price of $19.99 each - that's half off the regular price just for you! When you take advantage of this limited time offer you'll gain lifetime skills for baking delicious fresh breads at home.

With Peter's newest class, Artisan Bread Making: Ancient and Sprouted Grains, you'll learn to make Struan, a delicious multigrain, French country Miche made with natural starters, sweet sprouted cornbread and sprouted homemade bagels, plus much more. You might be wondering, "why bake with ancient grains or sprout your grains and flours?". For some people, heirloom wheat varieties like emmer, farro, and spelt are easier to digest in comparison to commercial wheats. In addition to adding more complex flavors, using non-wheat ancient grains such as quinoa, amaranth and millet, and sprouting your grains can also increase the nutritional value of your home-baked breads. By taking Ancient and Sprouted Grains you'll gain all the skills you need to master working with non-traditional grains in baking.

When you sign up for a Craftsy class you'll get access to your lessons anytime, anywhere, forever. In each interactive class you can post pictures, ask questions of your instructor, and view and comment on your classmates' projects. Explore new baking techniques by signing up for Peter Reinhart's Artisan Bread Baking or Artisan Bread Baking: Ancient and Sprouted Grains at the special price of $19.99. As Peter says, "growth is the proof of life"'ll be glad you joined in on the journey!
