Bread: Back to Basics
Bread: Back to Basics 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 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.
Good bread is best made slowly, so throughout the course you’ll be introduced to techniques for building superior flavour, texture, nutrition, and keeping quality into your bread using the best ingredient around: time.
During the course you will make rustic white loaves, wholemeal seeded rolls, ciabatta, focaccia, fougasse and pitta. You’ll also make an enriched brioche dough to take home and bake the next day.
Loaf will share tips and techniques throughout the day. 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 (or keep to yourself!)
