Festive Breads Course
Our festive breads course proves popular year on year, enjoy a day of Festive bread baking and perhaps a tipple or two throughout the day. This a relaxed fun day of making some truly delicious festive breads.
On the day we will make a Panetonne, a Danish crown and 12th night bread, they will look fantastic, taste incredible and are a joy to produce. This is an intermediate course and will ideally you’ll have some cake baking/ bread making skills prior to the course, but not essential.
