“Man can not live by bread alone”, but I’m one “bread-a-holic” who would gladly give it a try. It’s the only staple I simply couldn’t live without. Hand me a just-out-of-the-oven long, skinny French baguette, with its crispy, crackly crust and soft, moist, chewy center, a couple slabs of cold, hard, creamery butter to melt on each piece, and I’m in my “gluten” glory!
Are there any aromas more intoxicating than the yeasty smell of fresh, homemade bread baking in a warm, toasty oven? The smell envelops you and draws you in closer to it’s source, fixating your mind on “the prize” and not allowing you to think of anything else but when is it going to be ready to eat?
At grocery stores, it’s expensive to buy the fresh, store-made loaves, and the more affordable factory-produced varieties are usually high in processed sugar and bleach. So it’s worth it-both economically and yummily-to learn how to make your own bread, and it’s really not as hard as you might think.

Friday and Saturday, learn about the science behind aphrodisiac foods and prepare a sensuous menu featuring recipes from the book. Some of the dishes include fried oyster salad with remoulade dressing, artichoke pizza with feta and thyme, and quail in grape sauce. On Sunday, satisfy your sweet tooth with chocolate fig bundles, chocolate Pot de Crème, chocolate torte dressed in berries, and chocolate almond truffles. Hopkins will also discuss the history and lore of chocolate and the science of why it has been influencing people’s emotions for centuries.
