Feb. 6, 2008, Edmonton – The Northern Alberta Institute of Technology's (NAIT) Baking program has announced a series of new courses aimed at post graduate training.

"The upcoming series has a variety of training modules including theoretical lectures, hands on classroom demonstrations and an intensive practical training component delivered by noted guest instructors," Alan Dumonceaux, chair of the NAIT Baking Program, said in a release.

NAIT's first course will be taught by Jeffrey Hamelman, bakery director and an instructor with the King Arthur Flour COmpany's Baking Education Center in Norwich, Vermont. Hamelman has a long list of qualification: captain of the 1996 U.S. baking team, he's a certified mast baker who received the Golden Baguette Award from the Bread Bakers Guild of America in 2005. He's also the author of Bread: A Baker's Book of Techniques and Recipes, which won the Julia Child Best First Cookbook Award from the International Association of Cooking Professionals.

Hamelman will offer a lecture on Maximizing Bread Flavour on Tuesday, March 4 at the NAIT campus in Edmonton and then will conduct a Master Class Series on Thursday, March 6, where participants can spend the day baking bread and viennoiserie under Hamelman's guidance. For  more information about the series of courses, contact Alan Dumonceaux at 780-471-8693 or by e-mail at: adumonce@nait.ca.
