Learn breadmaking skills

Learn to make bread in a small group class. If you are a beginner, or have a basic knowledge, this is the course for you.

My aim is to bust the myths about bread making:

  • Learn how to mix and prove your dough
  • Learn how to weigh and shape dough
  • How to add flavours
  • Bake your bread to perfection
  • And learn how to bake great bread every time.

Breadmaking courses run for approximately 3 hours. Classes take place in the garden, with a tent for shelter. Bread is baked in my bright kitchen equipped with a Rofco bread oven overlooking our productive garden.

At the end of the class, I left Danielle’s laden with my own bread, recipes, new techniques for baking bread and a great confidence in being able to do this myself at home. I really enjoyed the class, and would thoroughly recommend it to anyone who wants to learn more about making bread. Karen Whitlock

This is one of the elements I like most (about the class) besides actually learning how to make bread, the obvious concern for general households and helping people to bake bread at home. Charlie, the Millennial Runway

    The course was fantastic, a very enjoyable way to spend three hours on a Sunday. We learnt so much and enjoyed everything we baked. Can’t wait to follow the recipes next weekend at home.
