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.

Artisan bread class - 8th February 2020

In this course you will learn to bake with sourdough and commercial yeast methods. We will talk ingredients, kneading, proofing and shaping. More importantly, we will really look into yeast - the different types, how they work and what their differences are. You will learn how to make and keep a sourdough starter and how to build a dough using it; we will also explore baking with commercial yeast.
On the day we will make doughs using both processes and you get to take home all the bread you will bake.
There will be a light tea and refreshments, allowing time to chat. Please bring an apron and a (large) bag to take home all the bread you have made.
Notes will be provided with step by step recipes from the day which you can replicate at home.
Suitable for ages 16+.
If you don't see a class time that suits you, email me and I can arrange a more suitable date and time.
