Kalani Cooking Class Series: The Secrets of Bread-Making

Mark Ceranski & Kenneth Drotar
Other Kalani - see description

This month, Kalani is excited to resume our Cooking Class Series! Kalani's talented chefs will be sharing their creativity and skills in classes that will cover a variety of subjects; some classes will focus on vegan, raw and gluten-free cuisine, while others will teach how to master cooking techniques and skills. Where possible, the classes will feature the wide range of beautiful local produce and food available on the Big Island.

This months class, The Secrets of Bread-making, will be taught by our baker, Mark Ceranski and our assistant manager, Kenneth Drotar.  Over the past few months, Mark has started experimenting with house-baked breads of all kinds, such as crisp sourdough bread (including how to get your own starter going), flatbreads such as focaccia (using locally grown herbs), and hearty gluten-free bread (great for sandwiches).  He will share the secrets, techniques and methods for successful bread-making in a tropical climate.  Kenny will demonstrate great ways to highlight home-baked bread, including that classis combo, grilled cheese and tomato soup.

Mark Ceranski

Author and Chef Mark Ceranski lives in Puna, and has been professionally cooking for over 30 years.  Mark has served as an executive chef for a Saudi Prince, a Formula One team owner, and countless British dignitaries.  While cooking and baking at Kalani, Mark has been working on the upcoming book, Potboiler: In the Kitchen with Royalty, Dictators and Despots.  

Kenneth Drotar

Kenny is one of Kalani’s beloved chefs, recently promoted to assistant manager.  He is Culinary Institute of America (CIA) trained and has been professionally cooking for 12 years.  "In my classes you can feel great about consuming the food we are preparing.  Buying local and knowing where the food comes from brings you closer to your food, and makes you part of the global change."
