Saturday, February 28, Irish Soda Bread Cooking Class, 1-5 pm, at St. Patrick’s Church Hall, 2702 Broadway E, Seattle. A cooking class for adults who are interested in the art of making traditional ‘Irish soda bread’.

Bring your mixing bowl and measuring spoons. Bowl may be metal, plastic, glass or other washable material. The size should allow you to mix the ingredients comfortably using your hands. Bring an apron and other items to protect your hands and/or clothes. It is best to store your diamonds in a safe place, otherwise you might bake them!
We will provide flour, soda, salt and buttermilk to make a sample cake. The recipe will call for two cups of flour and there will be another cup or so for dusting the bake sheet etc. There are two large ovens in the church kitchen. We hope to be able to bake 4 loaves in each oven on the first round. Time for that will be approximately 90 minutes. Nutritionist and author Maureen Keane will also speak to the nutritional values of Irish food, especially soda bread.
For more information and reservations, please visit eventbrite.com, or email SodaBread@irishclub.org.
