Homemade bread and cakes taste wonderful. You know exactly what goes into what you are eating and there is a real sense of achievement eating something you have made.
I have been baking for our family for many years and for the past 8 years for bed and breakfast guests and am pleased to offer baking days in our own home.
The days will start at 10.30am with a drink and introduction to the day, followed by a demonstration. It will then be 'hands on', straight into you making your own bread and cakes in our kitchen. On the traditional bread making days the intention will be to make a variety of basic and enriched breads, learning hints and tips on the way. The Christmas Baking Days will include a variety of enriched doughs’ including Panettone and Stollen Cake.
New for 2016/2017 an ‘Afternoon Tea’ day.
I have made some changes since I first advertised the ‘Afternoon Tea’ day. It will now consist of one type of delicious bread, ideal for sandwiches; either cheese or fruit scones, and three different yummy cakes. No experience is required as I will take you through each process, step by step. Impress your family and friends by producing a variety of lovely cakes. A light lunch will be included and the day will end about 5pm when you will leave laden with all your newly baked goodies.
A maximum of 4 persons per day so you will enjoy personal tuition, have a great day learning new skills and acquire confidence in baking your own bread and cakes. Baking is a skill for life and the day can be enjoyed by young and old alike.
Cost per person for the basic course is £70, this includes all refreshments, a light lunch and all ingredients for the day, you take home all you bake, a £10 supplement for the Christmas Baking Day and the Afternoon Tea Day. Children from the age of 8 are welcome.
Booking all 4 places attracts a discount and will ensure that the day and the date can be tailored for your requirements.
