Severn Bites – Learn breadmaking skills

Sharing is much appreciated!

Welcome to Severn Bites the place for breadmaking courses. I’m Danielle Ellis I’m a professionally trained bread baker having trained at Ecole Banette in France in 2014.

Come and join one of my scheduled courses which include bread baking, sweet doughs, pastry and pizza making.  Or create your own tailored one-day breadmaking classes for one or two people using the Rofco bread oven. Courses are run near Slimbridge, Gloucestershire and selected venues across Gloucestershire.

If  you are a small business, a microbakery or cafe I can help you develop ideas for breads right for your business. You’ll learn techniques to enable you to produce excellent, consistent loaves of bread and other yeasted products.  I also develop new products to make your offering unique.

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. Come and spend the day baking before you go further. I can also teach at your venue.

To discover the range of scheduled breadmaking and pastry classes, head straight for the classes page or read more detailed information on the courses. 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.
