Macbiehill Farmhouse, Lamancha, near Edinburgh

This course is for

  • beginners
  • people who have baked a bit (perhaps in a breadmaker) but don’t feel very confident about the process
  • cake bakers who would like to get into bread
  • those who’d like to make real bread for their family and would like a helping hand to get started

You will learn

  • how easy it is to make basic loaves without additives or special tricks
  • what flour to choose to get the flavour, texture and nourishment you want
  • how to get yeast working reliably without anxiety and why ‘sourdough’ is a great way to make bread
  • how kneading produces light loaves - and how some great breads can be made without it
  • shaping, rising and baking methods and tips for cutting, serving and storing your bread
  • how to develop your new-found skills

You will make and take home

  • four different loaves that you have made with your own hands with expert guidance

You will also get

  • a signed copy of Bread Matters by Andrew Whitley
  • coffee, lunch and tea (all organic, with much of the food grown on the Macbiehill smallholding)

Please telephone 01968 660 449 or email to book.
