Artisan Fillone with Biga with Italian Baker Stefano Tulipano – Advanced Bread & Pizza Making 2

March 21 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm UTC+0

Coming Soon…

Artisan Filone with Italian Baker Stefano Tulipano

Our Advanced classes bring people from around the country, from chefs and aspiring restaurateurs to seasoned home bakers. Until now, we have limited our Advanced Class to Part 1 only.

Finally we are rolling out a new generation of the Advanced Class: Part 2. The follow-up to the Part 1 class that has been selling out since we first introduced it back in May 2020, we will be introducing a variety of traditional and innovative bread and pre-ferment applications to our high hydration, long fermentation tradition.

We are bringing in a co-instructor to co-teach with Noel, Italian Master Baker Stefano Tulipano. Born in Novi Ligure south of Piemonte, Stefano started his culinary career at the age of 14 years old in a culinary school in Genova where he specialized in bread and pastry.

After working his way up the culinary ladder from high end pastry shops to luxury hotels and finally the world of super-star chefs, he landed in Chicago where he ran the artisan bread programs for eight high volume chef-driven restaurants simultaneously for probably the largest restaurant group in Chicago, Lettuce Entertain You.

And this is where I met Stafano, the best and most talented artisan Italian bread baker I have ever met. And we made pizza and bread together…and because life-long dough-dork -friends.

After mixing a dough together as a class, we will take our time to show you a variety of traditional and non-traditional techniques to prepare probably one of the more widely misunderstood breads  to come out of Italy.  Often mistaken for an “Italian Baguette,” the Artisan Fillone stands on its own as a wonderful bread product that is very versatile.  You can use it to make awesome sandwich bread, delicious bread for your bread basket and even pizza dough.

Once you learn the basics of Fillone, and how to incorporate a variety of preferments into the classic recipe (poolish, biga, etc), you will bet ready to innovate!
Once you register, we’ll send you a list of ingredients you’ll need, actual recipes and instructions…everything you’ll require to prepare for this class in advance.
