Baking Basics

Students' Area

Here is the Baking Basics Students Area.

Welcome to a new cooking course from CAVI. In November, we will be offering a 5 week baking fundamentals course aimed at those who would like to become more comfortable working in the kitchen. Have you ever wanted to make dainties for the holidays, but haven't had the confidence or the know-how to do so? We can help.

Lectures will consist of recorded demonstrations as well as discussion on the practicalities of successful baking without sight. Areas of study may include the following, and/or any areas students may find useful.

  • Bread. Making bread from scratch, without a bread machine. Making quick breads and muffins.
  • Cookies and bars. Making drop cookies, E.G. Chocolate Chip cookies. Making roll-out cookies, such as Short Bread. And you can't discuss cookies and bars without talking about brownies ...
  • Baking cakes. Techniques for successful Cake making. Ideas here include black forest cake and cheese cake.
  • Pastries. We'll make a pie or two and possibly Cream Puffs.
  • What about baking without an oven? We'll talk about stove top and/or Icebox recipes, including Nanimo bars, macaroons and/or home made chocolate.

Topics for discussion may also include:

  • Kitchen Safety and Organization
  • Ingredient Substitutions
  • Finding and evaluating Recipes
  • What tools do you really need to make your baking successful

The course aims at teaching cooks how to move away from prepackaged foods and create delicious baked goods that taste better and are healthier than out-of-the box options, and are quick and easy to prepare.
