What you'll do
You are joining an active bakery - we start our wood fired oven, finish milling our grains, and hand mix in our natural starter, then shape and bake - a daily ritual to produce hearty loaves. You can learn how to make a traditional country loaf with ancient grains, or a 100% rye loaf, gluten free bread or ancient baguettes.
Dorian And Carmina
Dorian has been an artisanal baker for over five years; his mentors are Chad Robertson of the famed Tartine San Francisco bakery and Dave Miller of Miller's Bakehouse in Chico. In a charming four hundred square feet bakery, we have a stone mill to prepare freshly milled flour, an ancient oak slab table for hand mixing and preparing the dough; our bread is baked in a masonry wood fired oven built with our own hands. Once an absolute standard, today less than 1% of the bakers still do this. Check out our website for more details: artisanlavinia.com

Where you'll be
We built our bakery on our own private property in the Sierra foothills; this is an idyllic environment resembling parts of Tuscany and Southern France.

The best learning is by doing it; while I will answer any questions, prepare yourself to see, smell, touch, sense - the bread making has a lot to tell us... No need for any other special equipment...
