We look forward to more baking days filled with laughter and friendship.
The best place to start is at the beginning so this course will teach you the basics. We’ll start the day by measuring, mixing and kneading by hand a simple white yeasted dough. While it is proving, we’ll create another dough and talk about the ingredients and stages of making bread. Then we get busy – shaping, proving, slashing and baking our first loaves. As soon as they’re out of the oven, it’s onto creating a delicious handmade pizza for lunch (with a glass of wine, of course!) then moving onto Italian Focaccia and shaped rolls before finishing off the day’s baking by rolling up some Chelsea Buns. There’s a welcome cuppa whilst the buns bake and when they’re ready, we all devour a sumptuously soft Chelsea Bun straight from the oven! You’ll go home laden with all your handmade freshly-baked breads and buns as well as all the recipes so that you can bake everything again.
