On the practical session, we will explore different types of flours, their properties, nutritional values and behaviour whilst covering the particularities of bread making with sourdough processes.
"I had a wonderful couple of days learning with Alexandra Vaughan of the Crow's Rest Bakehouse in Wakefield. Alexandra was kind, patience and so generous with her time, knowledge and experience - it was a real privilege to learn with her. We made loads of fantastic bread, and Alexandra shared lots of really invaluable information and her own experiences as a baker and a businesswoman. The experience has really helped me to consolidate and build upon my existing experience, deepen and expand my knowledge, and, perhaps most importantly for me, has really lifted my confidence in running my own microbakery. Thank you so much." TripAdvisor review, January 2020.
The course fee includes your first-year membership of Bread Angels, giving access to invaluable ongoing support and advice, plus useful discounts.
