About this experience

Bread is nutritious if it is made the right way. Allow us to show you how three simple ingredients can transform into a beautifully crispy loaf of bread. Half way through this session you will sit down to enjoy a tasty lunch.

Techniques you will learn:

  • Learn how ingredients work, why is your bread good one day and not good the next? Let our resident chef show you how to produce a consistently good loaf.

  • Learn how to shape the dough and apply toppings.

  • What signs to look for to judge when your products are proved and how to produce a crispy crust yet light and airy crumb.


Full recipes including ingredients list and method are provided for you to take home to add to your repertoire so you can keep on cooking them time and time again. Students make:

  • Challah (a traditional Jewish enriched dough, a 4 strand plaited loaf)

  • Irish soda bread (A traditional Irish unleavened bread)

  • Date and walnut dinner rolls

  • Focaccia with seasonal herbs and garlic

What you can take home:

You will take all of your bread home.

There is also a tasting session after each class where you have the chance to sample the tutor's version of the dish.
