Bread Workshops

Introduction to Bread Making Workshop

How does the day work?

Each workshop will be run directly from my home kitchen from 9.45am until 4.00pm, and will include:

  • Practical, hands-on tuition, covering many key baking techniques – everyone will make every bake and small classes of no more than 4 people allow me to direct as much attention as required to each person.
  • Morning and afternoon refreshments – hot and cold drinks, plus home-baked snacks!
  • A tasty home-made lunch, eaten around my kitchen table with the rest of the group.
  • Everything that you bake, which will be packed up to take home with you.
  • A recipe bundle with print-outs of each recipe made that day.
  • Your very own dough scraper (an essential piece of kit!) to take home.
  • The confidence to carry on baking bread at home!

The price for the day is a special introductory offer of £95.

Depending upon the speed of the class, we will aim to cover 4-5 bakes in the class, including such bakes as: rosemary and sea salt focaccia, white bloomer, honey wholemeal tin loaf, cinnamon buns and cheese and herb rolls.

The cost of the workshop is £120, and includes:

  • Practical hands-on tuition – everyone will produce each bake and small classes of no more than 4 people allow me to direct as much attention as required to each person.
  • Morning and afternoon refreshments – hot and cold drinks, plus home-baked snacks.
  • A tasty home-made lunch, eaten around my kitchen table with the rest of the group
  • Everything you bake, which will be packed up to take home with you.

Reviews:

“I had no idea how satisfying it would be to make my own bread and for it to not only look professional but the taste was immense. A commercial loaf can contain as many as 26 ingredients whereas Larisa showed us how easy it was to make bread with JUST 4 .

This course was one of the most enjoyable and rewarding things I’ve done and I can’t wait to go on another. 

Larisa was a great tutor, very knowledgeable and took away the fear of making bread.”

“I’m in no way a keen cook, but I left Larisa’s cosy kitchen with a new enthusiasm for baking. Add in new friends as well as new skills and it was the best recipe ever!”
