Italian Bread Making

Italian breads are some of the most well-known and well-loved continental varieties. This course will cover three classic and versatile recipes:

Pizza dough – learn to prepare, shape and bake your own from scratch

Focaccia – a delicious bread with a crisp exterior and soft texture inside. Great for dipping or for making your own panini

Ciabatta – this is a slow dough and can be trickier to make but we will help you develop your skills in making this classic

Students will work on all the doughs by hand individually, learning a range of core techniques to get great results at home.

Please note that students will shape and bake a pre-prepared pizza dough, but will work on their own during the course of the day to take home – meaning lots of chances to practice and eat!
