Residential Bread Baking Course Content

The Bread Baking Residential Course is your opportunity to get fully emerged into bread baking, learn the techniques and skills and truly understand everything there is about bread baking.


Over the course of the week you will bake more than 25 different bread recipes, have the opportunity to practice your own bread recipes and even learn how to mill your own flour in a traditional flour watermill.


We are also preparing special evening talks and extra hands on workshops with tastings of locally produced food - such as wine or cheese tasting, chocolate making or similar. Your 'non-baking' partners are very welcome to join us for these.


Bread Baking Residential Course

At the end of the week, you will

  • Have a practical understanding of Basic & Advanced Bread Baking techniques
  • Recognise where you might be going wrong with your bread baking and know what to do to correct it
  • Be able to follow Bread Recipes and create your own
  • Experience how to mill your own flour and use it to bake great bread
  • Understand how best to use bread baking equipment, including proving baskets
  • Gain confidence to carry on baking at home


I look forward taking you through the bread baking step by step
