How it works

The Small Group Baking program is designed for individual classes including FCS/Culinary, after-school clubs, scouts, and home school groups. You bring your group of 10-50 participants together to watch the BFG Instructional Video. You may supplement the video lesson by demonstrating parts of the dough making and shaping process. Students/kids work in teams of 2 or 3 and make loaves or rolls. Some they keep; some are shared as an act of kindness.

We send flour and materials based on the number of kids AND how many teams are baking. Each student will receive a recipe booklet, dough scraper, bread bag and twist tie. Flour and yeast will be sent based on how many batches of dough your group is making.

Please read the Small Group Planning Guide carefully, it has a lot of information about setting up to bake and a few timeline options for your group.

Learn, Bake — and Share

Building community through baking is one of our core values at King Arthur Baking Company. The BFG bread recipe makes two loaves or a few dozen rolls. Your students will share one loaf or half of their rolls with a family member, neighbor, or friend as an act of kindness.
