Reminder to join us tonight!
Back to school season may look a little different this year, but join your PHS friends for a virtual happy hour on Wednesday, September 9 at 8:30 PM, featuring our own Jackson Krule, who kick us off with a pre-High Holiday challah baking demo. RSVP encouraged here!
Location: via Zoom Meeting ID: 508 189 498
Challah Baking with Jackson:
Jackson will lead an hour-long, no-frills class where we learn how to make Water Challah dough (which is vegan, but not Gluten Free), Oat flour Challah (Gluten Free but not vegan). And we'll learn 3 types of braiding: 3 braid, 6 braid and a round braid (for Rosh Hashana). A stand mixer would be ideal, but we can also work the dough by hand if need be.
Bread Flour (all purpose flour works well too!)
(Eggs if you want to give it an egg wash)
Oat Flour Challah:
4 cups oat flour
1.5 cups Potato/Corn Starch
Xanthan Gum (no worries if you don't have)
Seltzer (tap water works as well)
PHS's own Jackson Krule started a Challah business after Covid-19 halted his work as a photographer. At first he made challah for himself and his wife, Arielle. But soon he started dropping them off with friends via a pully system off his Crown Height's balcony. Then, he started mailing them all over the US. Since the start of Covid he has made over 2,500 challahs.
