Covid-19 Update

Given the Covid-19 pandemic, the College calendar has been changed for the first term of the 2020/21 academic year and has introduced a two-week October half term break. This break is from Monday 19 to Friday 30 October during which time the College is closed to Learners. The College office will be open from Monday 19 to Friday 23 October (telephone/email enquiries open) and closed from Monday 26 October to Friday 30 October (telephone/email enquiries closed until Monday 2 November). From 2 November we are increasing the areas in which a face mask or covering is required to be worn.

What opportunities will this course give me?

There are a number of other baking and cookery courses on offer at Eastleigh College - please browse the website for further information.

What will I be learning?

You will learn how to make:

French fougasse bread, fresh olive ciabatta, French petit pain baguettes, and sensational beer and parmesan bread.

You will be taught different techniques to give you the best bread ever! You will receive moulding and kneading advice and be taught how to get a professional classic finish.

This is a full hands on day with opportunities to ask questions on artisan bread, flour and yeast cookery.

This is an exciting opportunity for keen bread makers who enjoy making bread from scratch to expand their repertoire!

A college certificate will be available on request.

Why is this course for me?

You will watch demonstrations from the tutor and then make your recipes. The tutor will provide one to one support to each learner so you will finish the day with professional products to take home.

What do I need to sign up?

There are no formal requirements necessary to join this course but some baking/cooking experience would be beneficial. You do not need to have attended the Bread Making for Beginners workshop to participate in this course.

Is there anything else I need to know?

In addition to your ingredients, you will need to bring a 2lb loaf tin, electric scales, apron, and pastry scraper if you have one, containers to take your food home in, and silicone paper/baking parchment.

All four breads will be demonstrated by the tutor. Time allowing, you will then have the opportunity to make all the items demonstrated. An ingredients list will be provided approximately 7 days before the start of the course; learners are responsible for the purchase of these ingredients.
