Taught exclusively by Richard Bertinet our one day Introduction to Bread Making class is a must for beginner bakers, regular home bakers and experts alike. Richard will take you back to basics. This is the course where you will learn and fine tune Richard’s method of working the dough and show the dough who’s boss so you can confidently bake bread at home.
There will be plenty of hands on dough time and an introduction to moulding and shaping, something that is needed to progress to Richard’s more advanced bread making days.
Your skills will be honed while you focus on working with both a white and an olive oil enriched dough. From these you will make a variety of breads including tin loaves, fougasse, olive and pecorino bread sticks and a focaccia.
At the end of the baking you will all sit down to enjoy a late lunch with a well-deserved glass of wine and a chance to ask Richard any dough related questions.
You will leave us with the famous fougasse grin as well as plenty of bread that you have baked! Please bring a bag with you so that you can take home some of your delicious creations.
