Good Buns and Bad Puns

School just started and my first week of class is over!I have one lab right now; Production of Breads and Rolls.As the name states, the class is devoted to making breads and rolls.Go figure.

On the first day of class, all we did was have a very long lecture and a tour of the class.We were even fed by one of the other culinary labs, and seeing as it was day one the food was pretty bad.Needless to say, day 1 was pretty boring.

We’re On A Roll!
For this first week of class we took it easy, making a variety dinner rolls and muffins.Each of the five groups in the room made different things.Our table was in charge of making soft dinner rolls, a multi-grain bread, and cornbread.

While the cornbread and multi-grain bread was made in a small batch solely by our table, the dinner rolls were made on a large scale to be used to feed the entire culinary building.The entire class stopped and helped us roll out and shape the almost 500 dinner rolls.

About 20 people huddled around our table, hands rolling and dough flying. Two people scaled out the perfect portions of dough and would, literally, chuck it across the table to anyone who had their hands free.The rest of us would than roll and knot the dough and place them evenly on a sheet pan, ready for baking.

As the speed kept increasing the joviality also rose.

“We’re on a roll!”

One of the students proclaimed as she slapped down the dinner roll.We all took turns carrying on the puns and jokes.Before I knew it, someone hit a guy in the face with extra dough and we all burst out laughing.It was just after that, that our Chef came over and gave us all a quizzical look.Fearing a good tongue lashing, we all quieted down and got back to work.

By the end of class we had copious amounts of hot dinner rolls, french baguettes, muffins, quick breads, and varyious type of loaves.All ready to be eaten and enjoyed!
