Really get to grips with the dough in your own kitchen

 

The following bread making courses are fully hands-on. You'll get the full experience of making three to four breads, start to finish, and we'll use your own oven to its full potential for the best results

Together, while the dough is resting, we'll build a meal around the bread with some of my favourite accompaniments. So you'll pick up up some handy chef tips, and knife skills too. We’ll take everything at a nice pace, and the course will last around 5 hours depending on how you get on. There will be plenty of opportunity to ask me your questions, and after that, sit, relax and enjoy the food

 

Duration: 5 hours plus eating time

Courses start at £295 for two people, plus a little for travel

Additional guests are welcome at only £35 per person

Mediterranean Bread

For the ambitious beginner, or introduction graduate

Classic mediterranean flavours, simplicity & passion. You'll make four of my favourite breads

My Mediterranean course is great to start building your knowledge. We'll enhance your basic dough with olive oil to make a focaccia, try more specialist flours, like rye, and use a "biga" to make a traditional ciabatta

We’ll match your breads with a selection of fresh and tasty dishes. Incorporating olives, rosemary, garlic, tomatoes fresh salads and a selection of cured meats and Salamis

Artisan Bread

For experienced home bakers

A great opportunity to get really technical. This course is the home of the classic baguette, where we'll delve deeper into the more advanced techniques of the artisan baker

Learn how to recreate that "stone-baked" effect in your own oven, achieving that perfect crust. You'll prove the dough using banneton baskets and a couche cloth, and with a grignette you'll create decorative cuts on the top of your bread. We'll explore high hydration dough, and the use of a preferment for amazing flavour and texture to the bread, as well as spelt flour, which requires handling in a completely different way

Your artisan breads will be complemented by a classic baked cheese, cured meats, dip, and wholesome salads

We had a great day and thoroughly enjoyed learning how to make beautiful breads - which were delicious. Jack was very good company and a patient teacher.
