Still need help with that sourdough? The MasterClass platform of virtual courses, taught by experts in a vast range of subjects, has added its first bread-baking classes. A series of 17 segments is taught by Apollonia Poilâne, the third generation of the Parisian Poilâne baking dynasty. The segments cover whole wheat and rye loaves, breads like brioche, and specialties, including rye cookies. She explains what to do with bread that’s dried out or stale. “I’m trying to share my expertise, showing how to open up your senses when baking,” she said by phone from Paris. She designed the classes to appeal to novices and experienced bakers.
