House of Bread Bakery Cafes offer hands-on bread baking classes. The San Luis Obispo House of Bread on Farmhouse Lane is open and hosting classes! Further, they are offering private classes, which allows you to pick your fellow students, baking topics and bring young children. The students 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 eight people. We do offer any of the baking topics for private parties of $300 flat fee and $20 per person. For the private classes we also offer shorted 2-hour versions that allows for larger groups, business team building, bridal showers, child birthday parties and just about any reason to get together, play with some dough and maybe drink some wine while breaking bread together. The shorter classes are $200 flat fee and $20 per person.
