2. either individually or collaboratively, bake a loaf of bread. document the process.

3. bring your loaf of bread to class on friday, february 26. also bring a plate to class so that you can sample other people's loaves.

4. along with your loaf, bring a little something to accompany it (a bread accessory!) - honey, jam, herb butter, lilikoi flavored butter, cheese, lunch meat, an avocado, hummus, aioli, olives, you name it. to avoid duplication and to give us a sense of the feast that stands before us, tweet your bread accessory once you've decided on it. also bring a serving utensil for your bread accessory.
