We went to Larry's breakfast and bread making lesson. See their website. It was one of the most entertaining and educational three hours that I have enjoyed in years. The breakfast was more a lunch with several Italian dishes, cheese, and Enrico's croissants and scones. All great.

Larry starts with a very entertaining rendition of the history of bread and how it influenced history. He does this with several humorous stories. In order to allow time enough for the bread to bake, we start with proofed dough and are shown, and then practice, the proper way to knead dough. We each then put our loaf in the oven. Then we were shown how to make the dough. Larry debunked several ideas we had had about making bread. We were told how to make a simulated brick oven so we can make authentic Italian bread at home. I can't wait to try it out. We each took home our loaf. The whole experience was well worth the $50 fee.

Oh, bought some biscotti afterward and they were great, too.

Everywhere you turn in the bakery, there is something amazing-looking to eat.  The bread display, with a few cakes thrown in, is especially tempting.
