Denton, MD – Steve Konopelski, pastry chef and owner of Turnbridge Point bed and breakfast in Denton will be teaching a four-part Christmas baking series throughout December. Konopelski is a classically trained pastry chef who is currently competing in Food Network’s Holiday Baking Championship, which airs Sundays at 9:00 p.m.

The Christmas baking series includes four classes. The first class on December 3rd will feature two pie recipes that incorporate the flavors of Christmas. The second class on December 10th will focus on holiday-themed decorating techniques for cakes and cookies. The third class on December 17th will feature four different cookie recipes that are unique and beautiful additions to any cookie swap. The final class on December 21st will feature sweet and savory breakfast breads that are perfect for Christmas morning.

Each class builds on techniques learned during the Thanksgiving baking class series previously taught by Konopelski. Bakers who attended the first series will learn new skills and recipes that continue to develop their repertoire. First-time students will also benefit from the instruction and do not need to have attended previous classes.

“The Christmas season is my favorite time to teach,” says Konopelski. “Everyone is in a festive mood, and it’s very rewarding to help students prepare special treats for their families. Students leave each class with plenty of product to share. In the pie class, for example, each student will take home two complete pies.”

Before graduating at the top of his class from the renowned French Culinary Institute, Konopelski was a Broadway performer. His theater background helps him create a class atmosphere that is engaging and fun.

All classes will be held from 6:00 – 9:00 p.m. at Chesapeake Culinary Center at 512 Franklin Street in Denton. Registration is available online at www.TurnbridgePoint.com. The class fee is $100 per class or $350 for any purchase of four classes. For additional information, please contact Turnbridge Point at 443.448.4782.
