Breadmaking by Hand

Breadmaking by Hand


One of our very popular traditional Baking day workshops, these are always very busy and productive day. Gillian will explain first over coffee the importance of the various ingredients, dried yeast vs fresh, liquids and proving times and quickly demonstrate a basic farmhouse loaf. Soon after you'll be following her example and preparing your first loaf.

Once you have the feel of the dough you'll soon be starting the second...and third! Gill comes with an array of recipes and a 'shop full' of ingredients too. Options include wholemeal or granary - loaves or rolls, Focaccia. Rustic soda breads, Challah, Parmesan buns, garlic rings and much more - make room in your freezer.

There really is something special about making bread by hand! It's the 'doing it' and the warm dough-y smells that ensue to provide an unrivalled homeliness for your kitchen, friends and family.

Gillian, who is becoming very well known throughout the county for her whole repertoire of bread making skills will share with us her secrets for a wonderful variety of her very achievable and special ‘hand made breads’.

Using both Aga and conventional fan oven. Your day will include a lovely 2 course lunch, with hand made bread and all refreshments.

Please note that March 19th and Oct 11th include scone making too.
