Oldest pupil is star baker

Saturday saw our oldest pupil to date when 84 year old Joan attended a course with her daughter Helen and another student, Denise.  Having always wanted to bake bread and particularly DSCF4034focaccia, Helen bought a place on the course as a birthday present for Joan.  Although a keen cook and baker, Joan had never quite mastered bread.  After starting with a basic granary loaf and knot rolls, Joan went on to bake a great looking sun-dried tomato focaccia and then an impressive pesto swirl.

Helen and Denise produced some excellent loaves too and both enjoyed the coffee, tea and lunch as well as the tuition.  Helen chose to make a stuffed olive focaccia and pesto swirl while Denise was keen to make a loaf she had been buying from our market stall: spiced apple and marzipan.
