On the Three-day “Going Professional” course, Sarah Cobbold wrote in BBC Good Food Magazine, Feb 2010: “Paul Merry, an experienced and enthusiastic artisan baker, adapts each three-day course to the participants’ requests and interests. My class decided to focus on sourdoughs and the wood-fired oven.
There is a lot of teaching, but we were involved in every stage, calculating the quantities in each recipe, making up doughs, shaping the bread and firing the oven. The course was a fantastic confidence builder. We left with a real knowledge of bread, how it works, and how to adapt no matter what the situation.”
