Flavoured Breads and Staffordshire Oatcakes Course

A full day of understanding creating some Flavoured Breads as well as making the local food legend, the Staffordshire oatcake.

Flavoured Breads and Staffordshire oatcakes is a re-styled new course for 2023 based around a popular course we ran up to 2017. We’ve given the material a re-vamp and are looking forward to running it with you in 2023.

This covers many methods of the basic breads course but will require no previous experience to participate. We’ll show you how to make 3 yeasted breads and how we incorporate flavours into the breads as well as making traditional Staffordshire Oatcakes.


What we’ll teach you on this course:

Basics: Equipment & Ingredients

Bread: Walnut & Ale, Tomato, onion seed & Rosemary, Fig & Black Pepper & Staffordshire Oatcakes.

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


“Firstly I just wanted to say how much I loved the course and thank you all for an incredible day, I can't give it enough praise and seriously recommend it to anyone regardless of their baking skills! Secondly as I got this course as a gift can I ask you send the recipies to this email as obviously you won't have it and I really don't want to loose out on what I've just learnt 😁”
