'Breads of the World' starts Jan 17 with India

“Bread is the king of the table,” wrote American novelist Louis Bromfield. Every country has their “king,” from the French baguette to chapati from India. The Fond du Lac Public Library will be celebrating the royal food with Breads of the World, a series of classes held in the Idea Studio demonstration kitchen at 6 p.m. every third Tuesday of the month. The series is free; registration is required and starts at 9:30 a.m. two weeks before each class at the Calendar.

The series kicks off on January 17 with two flatbreads from India, chapati and paratha. The demonstration will be taught by library staff member Varsha Pathare, who was born in Mumbai, India, and has lived in the United States for more than 20 years. Pathare will demonstrate the steps to make each type of flatbread and will share recipes.

  • March 21: Challah from Israel
  • April 18: Tortilla from Mexico
