What you'll learn in this bread class:

Every day, our bakery produces freshly-baked bread for our restaurants, counters, and marketplace. Our secret ingredients? A custom-built wood-fired oven, select freshly-milled flours, and a time-honored mother yeast. Lievito madre, or "mother leaven," is the key to transforming flour and water into traditional Italian bread. 

Join one of our head bakers as they educate you on the basics of making your own bread at home from a mother leaven. Guests will enjoy a sampling of Eataly’s various breads and will take home their own mother yeast to bake with at home!


Antipasti, to be determined


1 wine, to be determined
