  • Beautiful-Bread-for-Beginners

    Great British Breads

    Suitable for the complete novice, for rusty bread makers and for anyone who wants to bake beautiful bread at home. Soft ham and cheese wraps, multi-seeded rye, white cottage loaf and a sweet spiced / fruited braid.

  • Beer-Bread-and-Sausages

    Beer, Bread and Sausages

    This class is full of big flavours. Great for mates. No fuss and no experience necessary. Oat and ale bread to mop up a stew, crusty beer bread for cheese and pickles, rolls for the BBQ and garlic, potato and clotted cream focaccia. Perfect after exercise and washed down with a cool glass of beer!

  • cider-and-sourdough

    Cider and Sourdough

    A match made in heaven! Longer, slower fermentation using a sourdough starter (created by the yeasts and bacteria floating around your kitchen) produces breads rich in flavour with an open crumb and deep, crispy crust. Best for bakers who've already attended a basic class.

  • Festive-treats

    Festive Treats

    Held in the weeks leading up to Christmas and Easter, these classes are dedicated to breads enriched with butter and eggs, spiced with nutmeg, ginger and cinnamon, jewelled with nuts and fruits - and topped with sugary naughtiness. Places are limited so please book early.

  • bread-americas

    Breads of the Americas
