If you picked up a recent issue of Bon Appetit, you probably read about Smoke Signals. A wood-fired bakery, lead by Tara Jensen, based in Marshall, NC. When I first learned about the bakery and the workshops hosted there, I thought: that girl Tara is living THE DREAM! If I could get into one of their workshops, that would be a great reason to get to North Carolina, a place I've never been, but have been wanting to check out.
Well, I'm about to find out for myself.
I was able to snag a spot at the now sold-out Wood Fired Baking Intensive workshop where I'll spend three days learning about, making and sampling wood-fired pizzas, breads made from starters and pie. Three of my favorite things on the planet.
I have no idea where to stay, if anyone will make the trip with me or if I'll make friends (I'm pretty sure I'll make friends) - but it's going to be awesome! XO
