Maine Bagel Lab
with Jeff Mao
There’s nothing like a great, chewy bagel for starting your day off right–except for a great, chewy bagel that you made yourself with delicious local ingredients! In this hands-on workshop, attendees will learn how to make bagels from beginning to end–measuring and mixing the dough, portioning and shaping bagels, and finally boiling and baking. Craft your perfect bagel using Maine Grains flour and mix-ins/toppings from local producers–even mix your own flavored cream cheese to top it off!
This is an interactive class and the course fee includes a beverage of choice in the Tasting Room immediately following class. All ingredients, materials, equipment and recipes will be provided.
Instructor Jeff Mao of Knead and Nosh is an avid home cook, baker and cookbook author who teaches cooking and baking classes with a special focus on foods that incorporate doughts in one form or another.
Maine Malts & Malty Beers
with Will Laliberte
Malted grains provide the backbone for beer, influencing its color, flavor, aroma and mouthfeel. In this class participants will learn about how malt is made here in Maine and around the world, and about the techniques that maltsters use to make different malt products from the same base grain.
You’ll have a chance to taste samples of malt and learn how different malts can be used together to produce the characteristic flavors of classic beer styles. The class will also include samples of several malt-forward Maine craft beers. If you’re interested in a break from hop-heavy beers, this class will provide a refreshing change of pace into the many varieties of malty beer.
Instructor Will Laliberte is a certified Cicerone®, homebrewer and lab manager for Bath Ale Works.
