Bread Making MasterclassOn this full day workshop we will prepare and bake a variety of breads: sourdough, walnut and Roquefort fougasse, challah, rosemary potato bread, and porter and treacle bread.
Bread Making Masterclass
Bread uses just 4 key ingredients – flour, water, yeast and salt – but the method of making it is essential in determining the quality of the bread. We discuss the science behind bread making, techniques to create the best flavour and texture and why ‘slow’ baking is so much healthier for you than mass and fast produced bread.
On this one day workshop, we make sourdough (using a ‘starter’ prepared the day before), challah, fougasse, rosemary potato bread and cocoa, porter and treacle bread (delicious with smoked fish). By the end of the workshop you will have the confidence and knowledge to bake perfect bread in your own kitchen.
The workshop starts promptly at 10am and finishes at 4pm. A light lunch will be provided of homemade soup and the school’s own sourdough with cheese and fruit.
Please note, this workshop is suitable for vegetarians, not vegans or coeliacs. Please email us if you need to know more about the allergens in this workshop.
All refreshments, equipment and aprons are provided, but please bring a couple of large paper or hessian carrier bags to take your bread home in. A booklet of recipes is also provided at the end of the workshop.
Everyone works individually at their own workstations, sharing only a 4 burner induction hob and standard size fan assisted oven with one other learner. We all work together at the same pace with each stage demonstrated before you do it yourself.
It is essential that you wear flat shoes with a closed toe – this is for your safety and comfort as we will be on our feet most of the time.
