Artisan Bread Weekend
Nothing can beat the taste of fresh, homemade bread and our Artisan Bread Weekend is designed to teach you the traditional artisanal bread-making techniques that result in delicious, nutritious bread.
Over this weekend you will be learning traditional techniques including Poolish, a traditional starter for breads such as Sourdough, Baguettes and Italian Ciabatta. Often known as the "Mother dough", artisan bakers will use a starter that has been kept alive for years and is often passed down through generations within the family. These methods create an incredible crust and a sour flavour to the dough along with aeration that can't be achieved using quicker methods.
All breads made on this course can be made by hand and replicated at home and you will leave the course on Sunday with an abundance of baked breads.
In contrast, 'Real Bread' develops a complex flavour with a lengthy fermentation process giving dough up to 24 hours to develop, allowing the natural enzymes to react with the flour in their own time for a much more robust flavour and texture. Since the enzymes have had time to begin breaking down the gluten in the flour while fermenting, the resulting bread is easier to digest. As Real Bread contains no additives or preservatives, it has a shorter shelf life but it's taste, texture and purity more than makes up for this.
