Go back to school and learn how to bake with Chef Cleo Bell at The KITCHEN at The Boston Public Market! In this lively, hands-on cooking class you’ll learn the essential science and techniques to creating perfect baked goods. In each class, participants will create enough of each baked good to enjoy at the end of class and bring home extras to share.
Attendees will also enjoy a wine tasting of three local wines from the Massachusetts Wine Shop as they knead, mix, taste, and bake each scrumptious recipe.
Baking School is scheduled for Sundays from 1:00-3:00 pm.
Do as the Roman's do, and enjoy bread with every meal! We'll warm you up this winter with a bread making class focused on the classic savory breads of Italy.

Cleo was born and raised in Washington, DC. She attended McGill University in Montreal and has a BA in Cultural Anthropology. After graduating, she moved back to DC and began working at local restaurants, such as Againn, a British Isles-inspired gastro-pub and Komi, a high-end Mediterranean restaurant. She has spent 2 summers as the Head Chef for the Hog Island National Audubon Society summer camp in Maine, working with local farms to bring fresh food to the Island and to happy campers. Cleo is thrilled to have the opportunity to cook and teach at Boston Public Market, with the whole Market to source from and the whole of Boston to serve.
At first glance, it might seem a strange road from cultural anthropology to cooking, but food and cooking are integral to the expression and transference of culture. As they say: culture begins at the table. By concentrating on serving local, sustainable foods, Cleo hopes to elevate the experience of the diner and to make a positive impact on the local food community.
