King Arthur Flour Baking Education Center
Today we traveled to Norwich, Vermont to the King Arthur Flour Baking Education Center. We participated in a cooking class led by a New Hampton alum. At the class, we learned how to bake an apple pie and a chocolate tart from scratch. It was a cool class and the instructor taught us tips on how to make the crust taste better. We also learned a tip that if using salted butter in a recipe calling for unsalted butter, to cut the amount of added salt by half. Our instructor is a graduate of New Hampton School, Robin Brown Sargent ’82, whose father was Chairman of the English Department at NHS. Her family lived on campus for 10 years.
