Course Details

One of the best things about making your own bread is that you can be inventive and create your own flavours. Learn with us how to use a variety grains and flours, add interesting flavours, and use various enriching techniques. Using yeasts, sourdough starters, sponge starters & wet doughs to make shaped and tin loaves, flatbreads and crisp breads. All our breads will be vegan, teaching you how to add flavour and richness in a healthy way without relying on butter and eggs.  

We will make breads such as:

  •  Sourdough
  •  Fougasse
  •  Fruited malt loaf
  •  Potato and fennel sourdough focaccia
  •  Buckwheat muffins
  •  Rye walnut crisp bread with sumac
  •  Saffron spiced sweet currant buns

You'll walk away with some essential bread skills so you can carry on at home:

  • The right types of flour to use 
  • An understanding of different ways to use yeast
  • How to mix, knead and bake bread of various shapes, sizes and flavours
  • How to enrich a dough and add flavour
  • How to proof dough and get the perfect rise, crumb and crust in your bread

Expect lots of hands-on bread making. 

We'll provide a delicious lunch to compliment the breads we make, served with organic wine or juices.  

There will be lots of bread to take home and a recipe pack, so you can continue your bread making at home. And you will, because it's difficult to go back to store-bought bread once you know how to bake bread at home.
