Hi Paul, Just wanted to say a huge thank you for all the knowledge imparted during the sourdough course on 10 May, ironed out where I was going wrong time and time again using recipes only. Planning on coming back for an apprentice day later in the year if you’ll have me!
It was a real pleasure to meet you, I am always in admiration of humble people like yourself who are so keen to share and pass on all that you have learnt. Being at the beginning of my bread making, I am truly thankful there are people like you around!!! Despite sore feet after two days, I still felt like I was walking on clouds!!!!!
Having been given the Paul Hollywood Bread book last Christmas, I have been baking bread for just over a year. I attended the PANARY Basic Bread course with Paul Merry just to ensure that I really understood the principles of baking and to learn from a master baker.
I must say the day was fabulous, the programme covered a range of flours, breads and very hands on. Paul is very personable, obviously extremely knowledgeable and has an easy teaching style. I have already booked up for my second course and would recommend PANARY to others.
What an incredible day we had on Saturday! It was inspiring, instructive and awesome in every way. Your teaching method was brilliantly fluid and responsive, I don’t think I’ve ever been taught so much in a single day.
We hope we can come and do lots more with you over the coming months. Have a million questions lined up but for now enjoying the unfolding of our bread journey. With many thanks and all best wishes
Thank you for a great course. I hugely enjoyed both learning and your excellent tuition and company – an ideal learning place where theory and practice could operate simultaneously, and a teacher who struck the right balance between encouragement and exactitude.
I especially liked the way you were happy to abandon Rob and me to get on with mixing dough or kneading or whatever while you busied about other stuff so that we felt we weren’t being micromanaged although we also knew we could ask if something went pear-shaped.
Ofsted would give you an ‘outstanding’ report – were they not to, that would only confirm all teachers’ reservations about their methods.
