After leaving the lauded Manor Road eatery last year, she’s been teaching classes and making partnerships with other food businesses around Austin, including a special chocolate sourdough with Confituras last weekend. (The classes have been selling out quickly, so keep an eye out for tickets if you want to snag one.)

The bread baker and pastry chef easily met a crowdfunding goal for L’Oven, a brick-and-mortar operation she has in the works, but in the meantime, you can catch her teaching classes at various locations around Austin.

From the about page of her site: “She will bore us with science. Because making good bread is often about understanding the building blocks of your loaf. Be prepared to learn baker’s math, think about the structure of a wheat kernel, and use words like “enzyme” and “protein” for the first time in maybe decades.”

The Louisiana native, who moved to Austin in 2013, is also hosting private classes and pop-ups, which you can learn about at lovenbread.com.
