It was a complete education and took all the mystique out of the process! Ann was very helpful and provided lots of tips and helpful information not only on the bread making side but generally too. The two hours flew by. Highly recommended.

This was bought as a present for me and I really enjoyed watching and getting involved in cooking. It was really fun as we were all in the same boat. There was an opportunity after to purchase some of the products used. Would definately recommend.
