Susan's Bread

Learn to bake bread the old-fashioned way!  Susan Seltzer will offer a two-part workshop on June 1st and 2nd.

On Saturday (June 1st) participants will meet in the Meditation Centre at 3:30 pm to mix the dough.   Afterward, wine and cheese will be served, and the dough will be covered and left overnight.

On Sunday morning at 8 am participants will reconvene to knead, shape, and bake the bread, a process that will take 3 hours.   A light breakfast will be provided while we wait for things to happen.

Ingredients will be provided, but you should try to bring:

  • a big mixing bowl
  • a strong wooden spoon
  • a kitchen scale
  • a 5qt (or larger) Dutch oven
  • some measuring spoons
  • a silicon baking mat
  • a cooling rack

If you cannot come up with all this stuff, we will try to loan you the missing pieces.

Registration for this workshop is $30 + a promise of fresh home-baked goods for us to sell at our Indoor Yard Sale in September.  Participation is limited to the first 12 people.  Just 1 slot left!  To register, please email us.

SSBMS membership discounts apply.

Susan Seltzer

For many years before she moved here, Susan and her husband, Paul, had a catering business in Florida.  Her involvement with food continued when they moved to Mader’s Cove to run a bed-and-breakfast.   All told,  she has been producing baked goods destined for others’ palates for 45 years or so.  Contributing to the community is a major part of Susan’s life.  She and Paul were heavily involved in the creation of the Mahone Bay Centre, she was a member of the Chamber of Commerce for years, and she runs or assists in running many other community events.  We are extremely lucky to have her!
