Artisan Bread Baking Courses by Orion’s Belt Bakery

Thomas Haney, a classroom teacher by profession, recently retired from full time teaching and moved back to Houston to pursue another passion, bread baking. In addition to a master’s in his first love, music, he enrolled in and graduated (with honors) with a culinary degree in Baking & Pastry from the Art Institute of Houston. Chef Haney chose the Baking & Pastry program because he wanted to specialize in breads. He is an award winning baker and has baked as a caterer, worked with local bakers, worked as a personal chef, and has many enthusiastic customers. Chef Haney has been teaching these bread baking classes for six years and has taught over 500 future bread bakers.
