This bread day is an introduction to bread making. Making bread by hand is very satisfying, there is a magic, in starting with a bowl of flour, yeast and water and ending up with a warm sweet smelling loaf.
You will learn how to use different types of flour from spelt to gram flour, the types of yeast and raising agents to use, how to mix, knead, proof and bake. It will be a hands on class with tips on how to get the most from your bread machine for those that have one.
We will make a selection of breads for example: Irish soda bread, all purpose easy dough for pizzas, calzone, bread sticks and rolls, Italian olive oil drenched rosemary focaccia, Indian stuffed paratha, sourdough, and sweet cinnamon whirls.
We will have lunch to compliment and accompany the breads we make, with organic wine or juices.
There will be lots of bread to take home and a recipe pack, so you can re-create the recipes at home.
