This class is based on the Italian philosophy of life:Vivi la tua vita al meglio! Live your life to the fullest! You’ll bake crusty ciabatta, focaccia doused with olive oil and flavoured with rosemary, tomatoes and garlic and a spiced wholemeal fig loaf. Rachael will demonstrate schiacciata – a sweet, fruited focaccia flavoured with orange, lemon and vanilla.
