1 Day Pizza & Italian


Course Description

This course aims to capture the fun of those quintessential Italian breads like pizza & focaccia. Learn to make and bake these flatbreads with flair, creating a thin crust, good flavour, and the right amount of additions or topping to achieve a subtly satisfying result.

Have fun making the remarkable and irregular grissini which will stun your friends at the cocktail hour; make a superb rustic bread from the Italian south with golden semolina.
