Basic Bread Festive Baking Course
My 1-day basic festive Christmas bread baking course features the making and baking of the famous German Christmas bread – Stollen.
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 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
A tour of the working stoneground mill is included.
An excellent hands-on course today
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.
