Bread Special: ‘Sugar & Spice’ Easter Treats with Rob on 21 Mar 2020

March 21 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm

£37.50 – £75

This March, we’ll be sharing the secrets of delicious sweet buns, so you’ll have plenty of time to perfect them before Easter!

Rob will help you get the perfect consistency for your enriched starter dough, then show you how to adapt this for two recipes: hot cross buns and Chelsea buns. Your hot cross buns will be crossed with pastry and glazed with a delicious mix made from apricot jam. Your Chelsea buns will be filled with soaked dried fruit, orange rind, mixed spice, brown sugar and cinnamon – all those mouthwatering flavours that bring these quintessential 18th-century English buns to life.

Mmmm, we can taste them already!

For those with a savoury tooth, Rob will be teaching you how to make a mouth-watering focaccia and hot & cold drinks included.

This session is suitable for all levels of experience, from absolute beginners to those wishing to further develop their skills. For vegan requirements, please contact [email protected] when booking.

All ingredients are bought locally at Unicorn Co-operative Grocery and other local independent shops.

Feedback from previous bread sessions:
Jennifer – great session. Rob is clearly passionate and that came across. Good to talk about practical bread making as well as artisan bread.
Chris – enjoyed making a basic loaf, fascinated by the difference between a supermarket bread and home made artisan bread. The science behind bread making.
Leanne– loved learning about different flours and mixing to give different breads.
Simone – really good to cover the different bread making methods. Also the information ablout the flour and other ingredients was useful as this would not be included in ordinary cookbooks.
Laraine – enjoyed working with others – expert guidance-building up confidence by knocking down some breadmaking myths
Astrid – all of it was fantastic, to try so many recipes for doughs, brilliant to go home with fresh home made breads. Rob’s knowledge made everything accessible.
