Another successful course

Another beginners course on Saturday with a couple, Regan and Karl from Southampton and Emma from Royston.  None had made bread before so we started off with white, seeded or granary flour mixed by hand to get a feel for the dough and the different flours.  We moved on to focaccia with olives, sun-dried tomatoes or garlic and rosemary and finished with our famous swirls: pesto, cheese and tomato or spiced apple and marzipan.  The results speak for themselves:

Feedback was good:

“Very relaxed, friendly environment.  Lots of fun”

“Neil made baking less scary than I believed it to be”

“This was an excellent course!  I could not believe how easy it was to make the bread.  Great gift”
