Course Description

Basic Bread Baking Course

Molding for a tin loaf

Molding dough for a tin loaf

In my 1-day basic bread baking course, we discuss yeast, fermentation, and bread flour. We knead white and wholemeal dough, make buns with a “ferment”.

There is plenty of time for hands-on shaping practice and be guided about dough development, proof, and baking.

We tackle as much as can be reasonably covered in a day from 10am to 5pm.

A tour of the working stoneground mill is included.

Festive bread baking

Basic courses before Easter will feature the Hot Cross Bun. Basic courses before Christmas will feature stollen.

An excellent hands-on course today

Hi Paul

Many thanks for an excellent hands-on course today. We both really enjoyed it and learnt a lot.We have been tasting some of the bread at home for our supper and it is all fantastic and really tasty.I hope that we now continue to make bread like this at home ourselves.Thanks again for a great day.
