From the delicious crunch of a crusty traditional baguette to the soft, rich taste of brioche, fresh artisan bread is an integral part of daily life in France. By the end of this practical one-day course you’ll have the skills, knowledge and confidence to bake a selection of authentic French loaves in your own kitchen.
Guided by our artisan baking tutor Emmanuel Hadjiandreou, an internationally renowned baker and author of the award-winning How To Make Bread, you’ll be given the opportunity to make your own doughs and to master shaping, moulding and cutting techniques.
No previous baking experience is required; just enthusiasm and a willingness to work alongside other food lovers to make fresh French bread. During this hands-on course, you will be baking:
The School of Artisan Food is nestled in the heart of Sherwood Forest on The Welbeck Estate, Nottinghamshire, just a few minutes from the A1 and M1.
Your bread will be available to take home and enjoy at the end of the day. The School of Artisan Food makes a conscious effort to reduce waste and packaging. Students are welcome to bring their own containers to transport their bread home.
Refreshments will be available throughout the day, as well as a buffet style lunch prepared by our team of chefs. All ingredients, equipment and recipes will be provided.
"I really felt that Emmanuel took the time to explain how to use the techniques we learnt in our own ovens giving us confidence to try again and again at home."
"This is now my second visit to the School and both have been hugely enjoyable and useful. I now have kitchen joy instead of kitchen fear."
