NEW for 2018 - four wholesome and unbelievably tasty breads

I am a great believer in eating "well" over eating "healthy." I believe that naturally, food that is real is better for us. That's why I have created this brand new course. You'll learn how to make these four super tasty real breads.

If you are a beginner this course will introduce you to a real variety of proper breads that sit MILES above their supermarket cousins, and if you are already a confident home baker you'll learn plenty of new techniques when adding these breads to your repertoire.

If you're looking to take your first steps, or learn how to create classic breads on a regular basis, this one is for you.

Right from the basics you'll learn my "never fail" method of making bread at home! You'll discover exactly what all the ingredients do and why they each play such an important part in the process. With this knowledge you'll understand what causes a dough to collapse, what prevents it from rising, to make sure that your bread comes out perfectly every time.

No more worrying and no more dense and doughy loaves.

The ever so slightly refined process of creating an enriched dough is suitable for those with previous bread making experience.

 

In this enriched dough workshop you'll discover for yourself the incredible lightness, and silky softness that comes from adding milk, butter, sugar and eggs.

Traditionally, tea time accompaniments of this nature are a luxurious treat, and require a slightly more delicate hand to create. You'll be involved in making a variety of rich doughs starting on one end of the scale, adding only milk and butter, and ending up at the king of all enriched breads; the brioche!
