Boot camps

(NYC) Baking Boot Camp for Amateurs

This hands-on, skills-based series covers the basic baking techniques you'll need to feel comfortable being called upon to "bring a dessert" to your next gathering. Or at the very least, understand a lot more of what is happening on the Great British Bake Off.
