Quick Breads with Keegan Rodgers

Tuesday August 29, 2017: 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm -- Pittsfield Branch: Program Room

This event is intended for grade 6 - adult

Keegan C. Rodgers, Head Baker at the People's Food Co-Op, leads this hands-on and lively workshop on how to make quick breads.

Quick breads are a great way to take advantage of summer's fruit and vegetable bounty. Banana and zucchini are the most well-known but peaches, pears, blueberries, and pumpkin all make great quick breads. Learn some new techniques and recipes.

This event is in partnership with the People's Food Co-Op and is part of an ongoing baking series.

Double chocolate zucchini bread? With a garden overflowing, it sounds like I should go. At least for this recipe!

Are they called quick breads

Are they called quick breads because they bake quickly, or because preparation time is short before popping them in the oven? (I'm totally in the dark when it comes to baking!!)

Quick bread is any bread leavened with leavening agents other than yeast or eggs. An advantage of quick breads is their ability to be prepared quickly and reliably, without requiring the time-consuming skilled labor and the climate control needed for traditional yeast breads.

Thanks so much for the info!

Breads are full of vitamins

Many people like to have Bread and tea as their breakfast daily in the morning. It has its own taste and a man gets freshen after eating it. This is actualy a kind of light meal that just takes your hunger away for a while only. Academic Writing Help For Food Sciences
