Join us on a Wednesday or Saturday 10.00 till 16.00 to learn how to bake delicious breads in hands-on classes with practical tips, plenty of opportunities to sample what we bake as we go along and lots to take home to share with hungry friends. There is no special equipment needed, just a normal domestic oven and good flour.
Come along on your own, with a friend or if you know someone who is just itching to learn how to bake bread why not give them a gift voucher for a bread baking and tasting session?
For more information read on, call me on 01337 858 031 or email email@example.com.
The Baking calendar shows dates for the classes listed below till the end of June (currently no vacancies) Classes for July, August and September will be published at the end of April, possibly sooner.
Please note that as from 1st April 2014 the cost will be increased to £75 however all classes booked before 1/4/14 will still be at the old rate regardless of when the class takes place. Vouchers purchased before 1/4/14 at the old rate will be valid regardless of when they are used (within the 6 months validity window).
Rolls, wholemeal Loaves, a white cob & oatcakes. These are breads to enjoy every day, wholesome and good with just about everything. Once you can make these, even good shop bought bread tastes dull.
Walnut Cob, Olive Cob, Lemon Bread, Malt loaf, Challah. If you want to push the boat out in terms of flavour then try these. You need to choose carefully what you serve them with, and when you get that right you will have a great meal. We will make three or four of these breads in the class.
Croissant, baguettes, focaccia and pizza: flavour and fun.
Have a look at our recipes to see what we do or just to get cracking.
The baking classes start with tea/coffee while we discuss what we are going to make. There is a coffee/tea/clean-up break midway which will give you a chance to swap experiences and also to leaf through bread baking books for more ideas.
We usually manage to fit in three oven baked yeasted breads plus something quick which we can have for lunch.
Classes are for a maximum of four people and a minimum of two.
How about treating someone to something completely different: a bread baking gift voucher! The perfect Christmas gift - a fun day out, a life skill and bread to take home! The cost is currently £50 as for any class (£75 after 1/4/14). For more details please phone or email me.

Please email me your comments and suggestions:
"...... as well as being good fun the class was very focussed with lots of hints and tips about breadmaking in general. When we left Colin gave me extra recipes for oatcakes which were absolutely delicious, as was everything we made on the day .... very memorable day which I would definitely recommend ...."
"the baking course feels like just friends baking and eating together, if they aren't friends when you arrive they certainly will be when you leave.
Most satisfying to my tummy and my mind, also completely non scary since Colin manages to work in such a way that even the least capable of us come home with wonderful bread. My children were delighted with this, scoffed the lot, two children three loaves!"
