with Laurie Anderson of Big Heart Bread

You haven't experienced focaccia until you have tried real homemade sourdough focaccia!  Join us in the HKS Kitchen along with Laurie Anderson of Big Heart Bread as she teaches you the fundamentals of making focaccia bread hands-on.  Laurie will show how to add in veggies, herbs and flavors to these mini Italian flatbreads to create beautiful designs. Due to the nature of sourdough fermentation, participants will begin with dough that has been fermenting 12+ hours. Laurie will teach how to make a Scallion Pancake from sourdough discard and create an easy dipping sauce that pairs with it. Recipes and notes on instructions will be provided.

**All class ticket sales are final.  No refunds or credit transfers to other classes are available.**

 

 

MEET THE BAKER:

Founder and baker for Big Heart Bread, Laurie Anderson created her home-based non profit bakery to donate funds from bread sales to serve her community. www.bigheartbread.com

When a friend insisted on paying me to make her a loaf of my artisan sourdough bread I knew I had something valuable. Cooking for and feeding friends and family has always been rewarding - in fact, it feels like my purpose. I wanted to find a way to maximize this opportunity, maybe even to use these funds to serve those in need. 

I discovered that my granddaughter's school had a benevolent fund reserved for students from under-resourced families. The fund I collected from bread sales would be donated to this fund, where the school would oversee disbursements according to the needs of the students and their families (winter coats, boots, shoes, assist in utilities, etc.)

My mission quickly caught on by word of mouth and on social media. In three months of bread sales, Big Heart Bread's first donation was $1,247 to McNair Middle School in Fayetteville, Arkansas! I knew my idea was worth pursuing as a nonprofit business. The word was out that I was a benevolent baker and co-workers, friends, neighbors responded in support with more and more orders and general donations. Many suggested donations for bread were exceeded in support of "the kids". My baker heart was touched, and Big Heart Bread was born.
