What does this programme involve?

You will learn how to make delicious baked bread, using the basic techniques of bread making.

We will take you through all the steps of bread baking, what to look out for when you knead and prove your dough, and simple tips and tricks so that your bread baking will be a success.

The day will cover various mixing and kneading techniques of the dough, and shaping and baking of the loaves.

Breads on the day may include a white loaf, then more exciting ingredients and you can choose from many varieties of flours, such as wholemeal, malt or rye.

How is the programme taught and assessed?

Students will learn through demonstration and hands on teaching, with some recipes for you to take home and try.

What else do I need to know?

If you have always wanted to make delicious home baked bread but never had the courage to try, then this is the class for you. This one day introduction is suitable for anyone wishing to learn the skills of bread making at home.

Please bring an apron and appropriate containers to take your products home.

Students are responsible for the purchase of ingredients relevant to the course.

Ingredients for a basic loaf, which you will make at the start of the lesson, will be provided. You will then have the opportunity to make a further bread item of your choice, for which you will need to provide the additional ingredients, i.e. alternative flour, flavourings, seeds, etc.
