High Altitude Baking with Molly Mix New - $92.00 +tax per person

Learn the fundamentals of high altitude baking in this demonstration-style class!

Explore the role that each ingredient plays in achieving a perfect finished product and study keys to successful home baking from a scientific perspective. Watch as Molly cooks through recipes for fluffy yeast rolls, seasonal fruit pie, and a perfectly light vanilla cake, then sample "before-and-after" versions of classic chocolate chip cookies. Each recipe will provide an opportunity to study when and how to adjust ingredient volumes, time and temperature at many elevations. Enjoy the freshly baked goods over a cup of pinon coffee and have all your culinary questions answered!

We will discuss the "whys" and "hows" of excellent home baking at every altitude so whether you live at sea level or 9,000 ft, leave with the confidence to create beautiful baked goods and never ask yourself, “What went wrong?” ever again! You will take a goodie-box of treats home to enjoy later.

Even from a young age you couldn't keep Molly Mix out of the kitchen! Hailing from West Texas, she graduated from Miami University in Oxford, OH with a degree in Dietetics. Her emphasis in food science came in handy immediately as she took a pastry position at a guest ranch in Creede, CO (elev 8,000 ft) and began to learn the secrets of high altitude baking. Her career "rose" to higher heights as she went on to bake at a mountaintop restaurant in Aspen, CO for a decade before moving to Santa Fe last year. Molly now takes full-time delight in ensuring Santa Fe School of Cooking never goes without something sweet to eat, and keeps things as "Mixed"-up as possible!
