Workshop Update

During August and September, bread classes are held in the garden. Designed for two people, the classes in the Garden are a great way to hone your breadmaking skills whether you are a beginner, have some experience or wish to learn a new skill such as sourdough bread. Please check out my Covid-19 protocol.

Many participants are choosing to take online classes. Join me for an online One-to-One Breadmaking Session or introduction to the Rofco Oven or to try sourdough. Just right for perfecting a skill, just £15 per half hour at a time to suit you. Most topics can be covered in two to three sessions.

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.
