Contact this Bread Angel
Alexandra has been running her microbakery, The Crow’s Rest Bakehouse, for over 3 years and has taught dozens of people how to make their own bread in a domestic setting.
Her classes are kept to small numbers to allow plenty of time to talk and discuss the processes covered, whilst getting you to make a hand-full of bakes from scratch. 
Whether you chose to attend a sourdough or commercial yeast class, Alexandra will show you how to incorporate bread making into your daily life with tips and techniques to use your domestic kitchen to achieve this.

Become a Bread Angel - Start your own microbakery

Alexandra Vaughan has been running a microbakery since Spring 2016. All bread is baked to order, on a domestic oven with doughs worked by hand. She has recently become very interested in Gluten Free options, initially out of natural curiosity, and lately due to own restrictions in what food she should have. Not having given up on gluten flours, she is happy baking with both.

On this How to Set up a Microbakery course, however, we will only be covering regular, gluten baking and you will learn how to get your self set up, explore the different type of products that have more impact with customers and overall how to create your own sucessfull microbakery!
The course runs for 12h over two Saturdays- 19th and 26th of January 2020.
Each day will cover different aspects of the bureaucracy behind setting up a small food business and how to promote it and engage with potential customers (think sourcing ingredients and equipment, marketing, legal requirements and administration).

We will also explore different types of flours, their properties, nutritional values and behaviour.
Over 6h on each day we will have enough time to bake and talk, so be ready to go back home with a lot of products and a head full of ideas.

"The workshop with Alex was great fun - very accessible and really well organised so that we were working on different doughs and techniques all the time (apart from lunch!) I'm amazed that we did 3 doughs and about 7 bakes, all within 4 hours. It's so much easier to learn things like working with dough and shaping when you can see it being demonstrated in front of you. Alex is passionate about bread and left plenty of time for us to ask questions and test out ideas for future bakes... yum!" TripAdvisor review, March 2018.
