11 am start!

Spend half a day baking learning to bake the French way and discover a whole new range of techniques. Armed with a wealth of knowledge and recipes at the end of the half day, you’ll be ready to create great bread at home consistently. Classes are run on selected Sundays and weekdays.

On the basic course you’ll learn techniques to make good consistent bread with recipes adapted for a home kitchen. You’ll go home laden with bread, recipes and the satisfaction that you’ve learnt a new skill or enhanced your skills.

Group classes run with a minimum of 2 people.


Sharing is much appreciated!


Home baked bread or that bought from artisan bakers is a world away from bread baked by the giants. Mass produced bread does not suit many people.

Bread is not complicated to make once you know the techniques. You’ll discover ways to fit it into your busy schedule.

You’ll learn techniques I learnt in France. Armed with a wealth of knowledge and recipes at the end of the half day, you’ll be ready to create great bread at home.

Courses run for approximately 3 hours. All you need to bring are boxes or bags to take home your bread in.

This course is suitable for both complete beginners and those with some knowledge. You’ll learn to mix, prove, shape and bake your dough.

  • Learn how to mix and prove your dough
  • Learn how to weigh and shape your dough
  • How to add flavours
  • Bake your bread to perfection

Courses are kept small making it easy to learn and practice. We’ll work hard but we’ll have great fun.
