In this class, participants will learn how to bake pita bread and lavash, two typical Middle-Eastern flatbreads, in their home kitchen! The class will learn multiple methods of mixing and shaping the dough. The class will then bake the pita and use a few different techniques to finish the lavash. Some will be done in the oven, some we'll do on the flat top, as well as some on an upside down wok, mimicking a traditional Bedouin method. Participants will leave with dough to be baked at home, as well as the skills and knowledge to continue baking these delicious flatbreads!
