My wife and I attended Sarah's 'Bread baking course' in September 2014. We had previously attempted bread baking at home, with no great success. Sarah demonstrated a simple and straightforward method which we were able to put into practise during the course.Sarah's professional but easy going manner made it a most enjoyable day. Came home with 2 loaves each, which we had proudly baked ourselves. Would recommend this course to complete beginners or those wishing to improve their skills
Doughnuts and Churros Making
At Delightful Tea, we think a proper doughnut is one made with yeast that has time to rise and develop great texture and flavour. Come and learn to make proper yeasted doughnuts in this completely hands-on class. Students will prepare an enriched dough, before fermenting, shaping and proving the doughnuts. Each student will also fry and fill their own doughnuts with jam and custard. Also covered are churros, a well-loved Spanish variation on the doughnut, which will be made individually by each student, before piping, frying and coating.
There will be a demonstration of how to make a rich dipping sauce to accompany the churros too.
Safety: Hot oil is used for frying during this class, so please note that all students will be closely supervised during this stage.

What our clients say about this course
Everything about the Delightful Tea is excellent. The website and booking system is intuitive and easy to use. The location and parking are easy to find and convenient. The tutor was professional, knowledgeable, but friendly, patient and approachable with it. The course content was exactly as described, fun and appropriate. The pace of the course was just right too. Even the other students were lovely. Also excellent value for money.
We made 6 amazing filled doughnuts. Proper doughnuts. Like the ones your parents used to buy when you were a kid, not the mass produced ones available today. We also made churros, which were little bites of heaven. I cannot recommend the school and this course high enough. I will certainly be returning to do one of the bread making courses. Well done to everyone involved :)
Great day with my niece and her friend on the doughnut making day.
Sarah is a wonderful, enthusiastic and inspirational teacher , making everything so simple so our doughnuts looked like they were made by professionals..
Her mum was superb at doing all the clearing up after us, Thank you.
The recommendation for fish and chips was fantastic- best i have tasted in years.
