Breadmaking Classes

In person … I’ll be easing back gently into in person classes. In May these will mainly be held in my retro tent in the garden (weather permitting). All those lovely people who have been waiting months will have first chance to book.  I’ll make sure everything is Covid friendly so you can be sure to feel safe to do the course. Class size will be for one or two (or a bubble) until June 21 and tailored to you.

Online … Join me for an online One-to-One Breadmakingintroduction to the Rofco Oven or sourdough session. Just right for perfecting a skill, sessions are £20 per half hour and are held at a time to suit you. I work with people all over the world. Online one-to-one classes are ideal for any level of experience and are tailored to you.

Most topics can be covered in two to three sessions, four sessions for sourdough. I’ll set up a quick chat before your session to plan what we’ll bake.

If you have a voucher, this can be put towards any course.

Breadmaking Classes

In the breadmaking classes you’ll discover recipes I learnt in France, adapted for the home kitchen. We use as much local produce as possible and flour milled by independent flour mills many of which are local too. Classes are kept small for maximum enjoyment: indulge in your passion for bread.

If you’re looking for bespoke, tailored courses, I can help. You might be ready to take the next step and are considering purchasing a Rofco bread oven, or are setting up a microbakery or cafe.

To discover the range of scheduled breadmaking and pastry classes, head straight for the classes page. There’s much to choose from: breadmaking (bread, sweet doughs); pastry to seasonal classes (including Christmas and Easter). You can also purchase a voucher for a class as a present.
