A full day of understanding creating some beautiful looking, visually impressive Festive Bread

Festive breads is a all about getting into the Christmas Spirit in the bakery.

We forget calories exist, at least on this course, and we go all out to produce some of the best tasting, visually spectacular, centre piece breads for Christmas.

This is a fun course using a variety of ingredients and needs no prior baking knowledge to attend.

We only run this course once a year and it books up fast, so if you want to come along, don’t leave it too late!


What we’ll teach you on this course:

Basics: Equipment & Ingredients

Bread: Panettone , Stollen Wreath & Twelfth Night Bread

Techniques: Weighing out Ingredients, Mixing, Developing gluten, Shaping & Baking


“Absolutely fantastic course - basic bread making today. If you are interested in making your own bread this is your one-stop shop!

Came away with a head full of knowledge and a bag full of bread. Couldn't be happier. Oh and great coffee and lunch thrown in 😁”
