This two day course is designed to cover a range of core baking techniques. Over two days students will make from scratch the following:
* Shortcrust pastry – and will use it to make a classic quiche lorraine (or vegetarian alternative if required)
* Sweet shortcrust pastry – and will take it away to practice with at home, along with our suggested recipes
* Rough puff pastry – and will use it to make sweet and savoury palmiers
* Real bread – wonderful, wholesome tin loaf, great for sandwiches and toast
* Muffins – savoury tomato and basil, perfect as a snack or for dipping in soups
* Cookies – our decadent dark chocolate chip recipe
* Loaf cake – lemon drizzle, a sure crowd-pleaser
In addition to the recipes covered, the tutor will be on hand to give advice on alternative recipes, to enable students to make variations and extend their baking repertoire even further at home.
Students will take home everything they have made and will also get to taste a variety of the recipes during the course.

We are restarting our class calendar with Bread Making for Beginners on Thursday 16th July! Many of you will have tried your hand at a little bread baking during lockdown and perhaps now you’d like to refine your skills or just spend some fun and relaxing time in our Covid Secure baking space.
Bread Making for Beginners is exactly that; the perfect way to introduce yourself to the joys of bread making (or perhaps helping you see where you could improve).
Class sizes are much smaller than pre-lockdown, so with maximum FIVE students in all titles, places are more limited. Our advice, book early to avoid disappointment!
3 generations attended this course - and we all really enjoyed it. My eight year old daughter loved being treated as a grown up, and was very proud of herself. Thank you Sarah, and I look forward to seeing you again soon
