Get ready for a little snacking and a little hands-on creation as you learn to become a from-scratch master. Discover how easy it is to bake your own French baguettes and top them with preserves you’ve put up yourself!

We’ll start with a tasting of baguette with jams & cheeses before diving in and learning how to prepare Tom’s super simple no-knead bread; this versatile recipe can be used to create a number of styles of bread. After that, join Lyn to cook up and can easy, delicious Ginger Pear Jam. Take home your own prepared dough, a finished baguette, and a jar of your very own Ginger Pear Butter. Now you’re snacking in from-scratch style.
