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:
Emma mixing by hand, cool hand Karl rolling his dough
and Regan concentrating hard on spreading pesto!
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”
