Improve your breadmaking skills

This is a breadmaking for those who want to bake better bread. You’ve learnt the basics, you’ve been baking bread a while, but would like to get just that little bit better.  Why not join the class to refine your breadmaking skills?

In a series of posts I cover a wide range of breadmaking topics including autolysing, yeast, baker’s percentages, scaling and using heat and steam. On this course, we’ll put some of these topics into action.

A delicious bread selection

Example topics:

  • Autolysing – how pre-soaking your dough can make a huge difference
  • Temperature – you don’t need a hot room or a proving drawer, just adjust the temperature of your water
  • Scoring or slashing – allow your bread to expand when baking
  • Shaping – shaping your dough for consistent results
  • Proving overnight – breadmaking can fit into your busy schedule
  • Ensuring your dough is ready to prove and bake

At the end of the session, you’ll have plenty of tasty bread to take away and skills to bake better bread every time. Classes take place in my bright kitchen equipped with a Rofco bread oven overlooking our productive garden.

The session will last approximately 3 hours.
