"So I've been wanting to learn to make my own bread, but it rather intimidates me! Lucky me, I have this fabulously talented and gifted, not to mention willing and patient, professional chef friend who so kindly gave me a private bread baking class today at my house! Okay, the whole process was still intimidating even though Steph walked me through every step, but she is such a motivator! (And totally fun to hang out with!) Okay so my bread didn't turn out as beautifully formed and impressively raised as the one Steph helped me with, but I'm gonna give this bread making thing a shot!
I'm telling you, she is your go-to girl! Okay, I'm done now. :)"
Thanks for the great review Gena!
A Chef Tess P.S.:
A true mentor in baking is open for questions and discussions. It is my continuing goal to be available to answer what I can or (as I often do) direct you to further learning. Sometimes the greatest teachers are the ones who had the initiative to teach themselves. My goal is to teach you how to love the journey! I want you to search the writing of those far more learned and experienced then I am! I will scratch the surface…spark the passion ( I hope) and do all I can to fan the flame. Then, when your fire is hot enough, you will share your experiences with others. When you are better, I hope you will in turn go out and serve.
Powerful lessons occur when abstract concepts intersect with practical application. You will benefit most when you are deeply and personally involved in applying the things you have learned. When you are home and try to recreate what we did in class, I am so excited to answer phone calls and help you further. Please do not feel limited to a one time class, but consider this the start of a new partnership and friendship in our journey together. I learn so much from each new class and student. I hope you will consider me your mentor in learning the craft of bread making. It is a skill that will change your heart if you let it. I will help you. I will be honest with you on your performance. I will offer a system of standards here of what I expect of your work, then lead you lovingly towards competence and indeed excellence, in time. Let’s begin our journey, shall we? Join me for one of our Upcoming Classes In Salt Lake City Next Week!
