Yeast Breads {3 types}


Foods 2 rip roared through three types of yeast breads today. We are studying five different types: croissants, brioche, parkerhouse, cloverleaf and braid. Because we have three different cooking groups, I had them each focus on one.

We also studied mixer and batter method. We used the Artisan Bread dough in five to make a yeast bread batter and speed up the process of yeast breads. The students were not quite fond of the plain taste of this dough. I know that they are not used to homemade bread without the sugar and preservatives of commercial bread. I suppose you have to have a taste for homemade bread. I can’t wait to showcase how this dough is versatile with a pizza braid in an upcoming demonstration. We’ll see how they like the braid and a cheese brioche that I plan to make.

As the teacher, I was pleased with the before and after pictures. Let us know what you think…
