Our Classes

Essential Breads

Rolls, wholemeal Loaves, a white cob & oatcakes, with flatbreads for lunch. 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.

Fancy breads

Walnut Cob, St Lucia buns, pirozhki, 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.

French & Italian

Fougasse, parmesan & pine nut twists, cheese & olive breadsticks, baguettes, focaccia and pizza: flavour and fun. Recipes mostly from Richard Bertinet's "Dough"

Lets Bake a Picnic

Pirozhki - little Russian pasties , roast vegetable picnic loaf, banana loaf - nearly healthy, apple and almond ring - again nearly healthy, panini for jam or cheese or anything really. Now all we need is a coffee flask and some sand to give that picnic crunch!?!?

Gluten free baking

Catherine Baker of The Auchtermuchty Cake Company who has a wealth of experience in gluten and wheat free baking is running gf baking classes in conjunction with BreadinFife. The next of these "The Essentials of Gluten Free Baking" is on 11th March. The venue has changed to Ochil Villa in Freuchie ie as for other classes, bookable now.
The menu is pizzas (for lunch), corn bread, white loaf, oatcakes and oatmeal crepes.
While Catherine is the expert guiding us all, I expect this to be a class where each person attending will be contributing information on ingredient suppliers, recipes, disaster stories and triumphs.
Please be aware that the emphasis is on gluten free baking and the recipes do use eggs, butter and milk. You can check the ingredients in the recipes to be sure that you are OK with the ingredients in all or at least most of the breads. If you have questions please email me

The format of the bread making classes

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.
