Chef & co founder
“This course is for home bakers who are looking to expand their repertoire, and understand the processes of wild yeasts”

We cover making and working the dough. How to build structure in to a loaf. Traditional and modern baking methods. Simplifying the bread making process, and understanding key points to ensure everyone can make great bread wherever they find an oven.
We all get involved with 3 doughs.
White bread for fougasse, baguette, loaves and epi.
Italian olive oil dough for focaccia, ciabatta, and picnic bread.
Pain de campagne, a French country bread with rye and malted flour. We also discuss sourdough, and all students can take some starter home to experiment. This course is very hands on. We make plenty of bread, and everyone takes home bagfuls of bread, notes and the
knowledge gathered over the day.

The cost is £110. This includes notes, all equipment, lunch and a bag of your finished bread to take home.
