Baking Success

It’s no surprise that baking is often associated with comfort food. Taking the time to make homemade scones, breads, chocolate brownies, macaroons, or cupcakes has become a bit of a trend lately. Amazingly, recent science shows that baking can even brighten your mood if you’re feeling down. What better way for the NJREF and ProStart teachers to have a blast while learning something new?!

The NJREF held its Annual Professional Development Summit for ProStart Teachers on November 8th at Hudson County College. The day consisted of learning the art and science behind sour dough breads.  Teachers made sour dough rye, sour dough wheat, sour dough multi-grain, and sour dough Asiago breads.

A fabulous lunch display was presented by Hudson County College culinary arts and pastry students. The day finished with an informative talk with teachers about building connections in the industry.
