One to one online courses continue. Half hour online baking sessions helping you to bake better bread.

Do you have a baking dilemma? Do you want to hone a particular skill? Do you want to know more about the Rofco oven? Using the wonder of Zoom, this is the next best thing to working with me in person.

Most participants choose to take a couple of half hour slots a day apart, but it is up to you! Cost is £15 per half hour. Examples of what we’ve covered include: making sweet buns; making baguettes; autolysing, shaping and baking bread; an introduction to the Rofco oven; setting up a sourdough starter. You will need more than one session to make a loaf from start to finish.

Terms and conditions apply.

Bake online together

One-to-one online baking sessions are tailored to help you bake better bread. Sign up one session at a time and date to suit you. Sessions are charged in half hour segments for £15 a segment. Making a loaf from start to finish in one session is not the aim, it is to refine or introduce a particular skill

Ideas for your session:

  • Learn how to knead dough
  • Shape your dough to perfection
  • Start and maintain a sourdough starter
  • Try something different – a sweet dough if you usually bake just bread.
  • You’ve no bread flour, what can you use instead
  • Discover the Rofco bread oven.

Sessions work particularly well when you’ve done a bit of preparation beforehand eg.

  • You have autolysed (soaked) your ingredients;
  • Your sourdough starter is ready and you want to know what to do next
  • You’ve made your dough but want to learn how to shape and slash.

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!

  1. Ywain

    I contacted Danielle for help whilst trying to master baking a straightforward loaf during lockdown. What I was baking tasted ok but I felt that if I was putting the effort in every day I wanted to get better results. I was also experimenting with T55 flour and wanted some tips. Her page stood out amongst the sea of nondescript advice as being more precise, and practiced so I decided to book a session.
    Danielle contacted me for a brief run through of what I needed advice on, booked a time for the seesion and emailed me breakdown of what prep I needed to do. She also suggested a second session to follow up which I found completely necessary and worthwhile.
    My bread now [almost] looks like I want it to, and tastes better thanks to Danielle’s advice.
    Highly recommend these sessions to anyone who who has started baking and needs advice on specific aspects of bread baking – make sure you have your questions sorted before starting!

    Thank you Ywain. I really enjoyed our two sessions together. I’m really impressed with the bread you’ve made since!

  3. Jill Springbett

    Danielle was very friendly helpful and approachable. I am a reasonably experienced breadmaker, and I have been making sourdough recently. However, it wasn’t quite as I wanted; Danielle helped me with my specific questions and gave me lots of useful tips. Her advice has given me much more confidence, and I recommend her tutoring based on my session.

    Thank you Jill. It was a pleasure to chat to you. Looking forward to seeing the results with your new flour!

  5. Jane Fleming

    I was really looked forward to my sourdough sessions with Danielle and I was not disappointed – Danielle is a very experienced and inspiring breadmaker. I loved the fact that during our sessions she gave me lots of tips and advice and I have come away feeling very confident about baking my next batch of bread. It is also really good to know that she is on hand if I need any further help. I would thoroughly recommend her very friendly and professional services.

    Thank you Jane. I really enjoyed our session together. Looking forward to seeing your next sourdough loaf!

  7. Julie Shelton

    As a fairly experienced sourdough baker I was getting stuck in finding the exact advice regarding over proving of dough, as well as advice about some technical aspects.
    Danielle’s knowledge and experience were clearly evident in the advice she gave me.
    I found this time an invaluable asset to my dilemmas and well worth the money.
    Danielle has a lovely manner and took an interest in my methods. She also enabled me to trust my own ability with her reassurance advice and support.
