Hands On Breads & Pastries- GF breads made with alternative ingredients or flours ie NOT gluten removed wheat flour - Gill comes with a host of exciting ingredients for you to use over the workshop.


When cyclists and walkers visit our Cafe and opt for the Gluten free bread they say it’s the best they’ve ever tasted. All our bread is made by Gill and on this course she will teach you how to create really tasty bread that you’ll find doesn't bear any similarity to any other you’ve had before.
It's the gluten in baking and flour that gives bread and pastries their elasticity and cakes their spring.

Therefore Gluten free flours are a little more difficult to work than normal flours and results less predictable - but there are ways round to getting good results.

In addition there are other ingredients to use as substitutes for a gluten free diet which will provide equally tasty alternatives and so help towards a fresher approach and better results.

Gillian Harris has been a popular county wide bread maker for many years and was used as an advisor demonstrator when Carrs Flour were creating their new bread-making flour ranges some years back.

She is also one of our most popular cookery teachers over the past 4 years. Her courses are always very hands on, productive and busy.

You will share and taste all you have made for lunch and then leave with anything that is left over.
Quirky Gift Vouchers are now available to buy and download online for all our courses. Perfect present and even better as a last minute gift if the shops or postman has let you down. See our website.
