Bake bread online together
It is amazing what you can learn to bake with me online. I trained professionally in France and I’ll be sharing techniques and tips I learnt there.
Sessions are personalised and are for one or two people. We work together in half hour sessions to create some great bread and some seasonal goodies. With a little preparation, you can create and bake a simple bread recipe in two half hour sessions. Sessions necessarily need to be spaced apart to allow the bread to prove. Seasonal bakes and pastry are available too! Before we begin, we have a quick chat to plan the sessions and discuss ingredients and equipment you might need.
Ideas for your sessions:
- Learn how to knead dough
- Shape your dough to perfection
- How to score your bread
- Yeast vs sourdough
- Start and maintain a sourdough starter. Bake a perfect sourdough loaf
- Create delicious sweet or savoury treats
- Bake for Easter – Hot Cross Buns, Simnel Cake
- Bake for Hallowe’en – pumpkin bread or fougasse frights
- Bake for Christmas: Pudding, Cake or Mincepie? You choose
- Bake European Seasonal delicacies: Stollen, Potica, Kugelhopf
The more complex the bake, the more sessions will be required. But we’ll discuss that first of course. I’ll set up a quick chat to discuss what you would like to achieve then schedule the sessions at a time to suit you. This could be daytime, evening or weekend subject to availability. I work with people worldwide.
Sessions are charged in half hour segments for £20 a segment. You will need to do some preparation at home outside the sessions. Do factor in that the bread will need to prove between sessions.
Previous participants have taken two or three half hour sessions to complete a project. For example we made these baguettes in this way and made and shaped the loaf!
