The ultimate learning experience, or a fun social event.

Jack comes to your home, with all the ingredients you need, and guides you to bake the sort of bread you would admire in a continental bakery, and all using your own humble oven! The delicious meal to eat with your amazing bread is unbeatable. We absolutely loved it”
— Ben & Jon

 

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.

Whether you are looking for a real education in bread making, a social gathering or a celebration with friends and family, the courses below work really well. There will be plenty of opportunity to ask me your bread making questions along the way, and after that, sit, relax and enjoy the food!

 

What happens on the day?

I will arrive at your house with all ingredients and equipment we need, and set up for our day of baking bread.

We'll make our doughs all together and put them to one side while we have a cup of tea and a biscuit. The dough will rest nicely, and we'll have a little time to prepare a selection of tasty dishes and accompaniments. This part can be a cookery demonstraton, with some participation if you wish.

Then, as we take the lids off the dough we'll see how much they have grown! We'll get to work shaping up all our breads together, and let them prove up once more. While they are baking I will take care of the finishing touches for your lunch or supper.

Together we'll set the table ready for a delicious tasty meal with all your fresh breads too.

I will tidy up everything, making your kitchen spick and span as if nothing ever happened!

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.
