    Nothing beats the taste and smell of wonderful homemade bread. Unless you are lucky enough to have access to a fantastic local bakery, the bread on offer from general supermarkets and shops, irrespective of what is looks like, is highly processed and full of preservatives. Water. Flour. Salt. Yeast. From such a simple list of ingredients comes a multitude of possibilities, depending on how we combine those basic variants and what choices we make in the core bread-making steps of mixing, kneading, proving and baking. To allow us to indulge our passion for bread, we have lengthened one of our most popular one day courses into a 3 day workshop. From starter and overnight doughs for crusty rolls and flavoured breads, we’ll explore pizza dough, flatbread, naan, brioche, focaccia, crackers and multigrain. Enjoy becoming completely hands-on in what we hope you’ll find is something that you will become confident in producing regularly at home.
