Recent feature in @sonomamag about Spring Baking Classes: OUR COMMUNITY IS THINKING about the sandwich bread and baguettes they want to make fresh for picnics, to say nothing of the artisan pizzas, hand-shaped Italian pastas, and glistening fresh fruit pies and tarts they get to share with loved ones as the weather improves,” says Lorenzo Alviso, program director at Artisan Baking Center in Petaluma. This spring at the center, James Beard award-winning pastry chef Nicole Plue is leading hands-on classes on puff pastry and spring tarts. 🥧
