Bake with Bettie Workshops!


May 9th, 2019- I Can’t: Bake Bread Event (Chicago, IL)

Are any of these you?

  • Working with yeast intimidates me…
  • I like the idea of baking homemade bread but it seems overwhelming…
  • The process of baking bread takes too long…
  •  I’ve tried baking with yeast and it never works for me…
  • I always kill the yeast…
  • I don’t own a stand mixer or a bread machine…
  • Baking homemade bread takes a lot of skill and I don’t have time to learn…
  • I don’t even know where to start with learning to bake bread…

If you answered yes, I Can’t: Bake — Bread Edition is for you.

I Can’t: Bake is part of Mac & Cheese Productions‘ I Can’t series, where adults state they’re unable to do something, they try it with a bunch of other adults who also “can’t,” and everyone proves themselves wrong and not only does the thing, but enjoys it and says, “That wasn’t so bad. In fact, kinda fun. Good for me! What’s next?!” Other upcoming I Can’ts include I Can’t: Clean, I Can’t: Wine, and I Can’t: Camp.

For this I Can’t edition, Mac & Cheese is partnering with trained chef and baking instructor Kristin “Baker Bettie” Hoffman.

Event Details

In this workshop, Bettie will demystify all of the common questions and problems surrounding yeast and the basic process of baking bread. Bettie will also demo several master recipes that can be easily made by hand without any specialty equipment. You will see how these master recipes can be used for a variety of breads. You will leave with approachable recipes, detailed explanations, and yeast in hand (and the confidence!) to give it a go at home!
