  • Sourdough Made Simple

    Sourdough, made with a wild yeast culture instead of commercial yeast, is delicious and easier to digest than many other breads because of its longer fermentation. It has also become extraordinarily popular so what’s it all about? How do you make and maintain a starter? Can you fit bread that takes many hours to make into your busy life? Please join me in my not very big kitchen for a day immersed in all things Sourdough. We will make a “starter”, also known as a chef, mother, levain, poolish, biga, etc., a white sourdough, rye sourdough and multi-grained sourdough. We’ll also devour slices of different flavoured sourdough loaves over lunch while we continue our conversation about these utterly fabulous breads. Advice on recipe books, websites, useful equipment and folding techniques are all part of the package and at the end of the day you’ll take home all you’ve baked plus the confidence to have a go yourself.

  • Bread Baking for Beginners

    Please join me in my not very big kitchen and learn that however small your cooking space you can still bake great bread. We will work together to make several loaves, from a white loaf and buns to a rye with caraway seeds and sodabread too. Over lunch we’ll chat about our passion for really good bread and you’ll take home all that you've baked, notes to work from plus the confidence to repeat the experience in your own kitchen. I’m a spit from Teddington Station, easily accessible from Waterloo or there’s private parking if you need it. Or how about a Baking Party? The day is exactly the same as described above except that you invite a few friends over and I come to you, bringing everything we need, including lunch of course! Do get in touch so we can discuss. at 5 Old Station Gardens, Victoria Road, Teddington TW11 0BA Tel: 07587 184874
