House of Bread Bakery Cafes offer hands-on bread baking classes. The San Luis Obispo House of Bread on Farmhouse Lane is hosting classes! Further, they are offering private classes, which allows you to pick your fellow students, baking topics and bring young children. We can also customize a shorter class for businesses, book clubs, bridal showers, or child birthday parties or even adult birthday parties-where people want to want to play with dough and maybe enjoy our adult beverages while breaking bread together.

The students in the full baking classes learn how bread is made, the chemistry behind successful loaves, how dough is kneaded, how it should feel, how to bake it and what creative, fun things can be made! Students leave with recipes, the knowledge to make bread at home and breads they made from their own two hands!

There are no prerequisites to the classes, so beginners and advanced students are welcome. Classes start at 9:30am. Classes last approximately 3 hours. All classes cost $75 per person. Minimum age is 10 years old. Class size is limited to nine people. We do offer any of the baking topics for private parties of full baking classes of $300 flat fee and $20 per person, shorter sessions two hours, $200 plus the $20 per person or even a mini one-hour class for $100 and $20 per person. We are flexible and welcome creative input on how to create a fun event for your group.
