This course demonstrates the skills and techniques required to make delicious, freshly baked bread. Students learn how to make two types of breads with different flavours. Students will need to bring the following to the first class: an apron, container to take food home in, ingredients needed for the session, which will be sent out to students closer to the time of the course.

This one day workshop will cover the following:

  • Flavoured focaccia
  • Soda bread
  • Fruit loaf

We will start with an overview of bread basics; covering tips on achieving a good rise with different types of bread and tips on the do's and don'ts of baking. The baking will begin with preparing the focaccia bread and you will be able to choose from a range of ingredients to flavour your bread. Whilst this is on it's first proving stage, we will bake a quick and easy soda bread (which will go really well with some fresh soup!).
As the soda bread is baking, the second stage of proving the focaccia will commence. You will then have a freshly baked soda bread, ready to take home. The kitchen will be full of the wonderful smells of baking bread which will create a perfect environment to learn the art of making chapatis, a light Indian flatbread, a fun activity to share as a group.
By the end of the workshop your focaccia will also be ready to bake and take home.
