Back to Basics Bread Making Course

Course Description

The Back to basics bread making and baking course is a day-long bread experience. In a world where real bread is so hard to come by, this course will equip you to make consistently good, wholesome bread at home.

This hands-on course led by baker Tom Baker takes bread back to its essential ingredients – flour, water, salt and yeast – and teaches you a great repertoire of beautiful breads based on these basic building blocks. During the course you will make rustic white loaves, wholemeal seeded rolls, sourdough bread, ciabatta, fougasse and pizza, which you’ll eat for your lunch. You’ll also make an enriched brioche dough for you to take home and bake the next day.

Tom will be sharing his tips and techniques throughout the day, and you’ll learn everything from what is the essential bread making kit to how to form a perfectly round boule, and there’ll be plenty to take home and share with your loved ones too! To add a Taste the wild touch you will also learn to add some wild flavours to your breads.

The course starts promptly at 9.30am and finishes at 4pm. The course will run in Taste the wild’s woodland kitchen using our wood fired earth ovens to bake the bread.

The cost of the course includes all tuition, ingredients and lunch.

The course is run in an open sided barn in our 18 acre wood. Please wear appropriate clothing and robust footwear.

There are 10 places on the course.
