Learn how to work with a typically wetter bread dough which are in the centre of traditional Italian Bread Baking. You will learn how to bake your own Focaccia and how to make a simple, but tasty pizza with your choice of toppings. You will also learn how to bake Italian Grissini, which are easy enough to make, but impressive to take to any dinner party.
And for those with a sweet tooth, we have also included traditional italian pistachio biscotti, which make a great little handmade gift and are perfect with your morning coffee.
You will get the chance to taste your own bakes at lunch time (especially the pizza) and still have plenty to take home with you.
This course is suitable for anyone who likes to learn new skill - no previous experience is needed. The course is held in a domestic kitchen in a small group to allow you to practice making bread in similar surroundings that you might have at home. The small groups are ideal for learning and ensuring that you get most out of your day.
The day will start with cup of tea or coffee and friendly chat about what to expect from the day. We then move to our kitchen, which is part of a lovingly refurbished Victorian house.
Here you will learn how to mix basic bread dough and more importantly how to knead it, so it rises well. By the end of the morning, your bread will be happily rising, whilst you enjoy a light lunch including your own pizza and glass of wine.
The day will finish in late afternoon and you will leave full of ideas and with a step by step tutorial on how to make italian bread at home and plenty of your own freshly baked bread.
