Bread: Back to Basics

There are spaces available on our 29th September Bread course, it’s a week on Saturday and will take place in the new cookery school adjacent to Stirchley Stores:

Bread: Back to Basics is a day-long course. Loaf Director Tom will equip you with the skills to make consistently good, wholesome bread at home. This experience 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. You’ll learn how to make rustic white loaves, wholemeal seeded rolls, ciabatta, fougasse and pizza, which you’ll eat for your lunch. You’ll also make an enriched brioche dough for you to take home and bake the next day.

 

New butchery courses

1st November – Perfect Poultry & 21st November – Nose to Tail Lamb

These are run in partnership with Steve Rossiter, who runs Birmingham’s only certified organic butchers in Bournville.
