Allergen Warning:  Wheat/Gluten

This class will use basic kitchen equipment, including items that pose a cutting hazard such as a cheese grater, knife, and/or food processor.  Although we will not be using an oven in this class, links will be provided to instructions for baking sourdough bread.  For this step, students will need to use an oven.  

Links to sourdough baking resources may include blogs that contain content on other topics.  Parental supervision is recommended.
