Learn how to make bread on a cookery course in Birmingham

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 both white and wholemeal loaves, ciabatta, foccacia and fougasse and pitta.

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!)

The course starts promptly at 9.30am and finishes around 4pm takes place at Loaf’s cookery school on Stirchley High Street in South Birmingham.

All refreshments, vegetarian lunch, equipment, recipes and aprons are provided.

You’ll feel right at home at Loaf, and everything you learn will set you up for bringing your own kitchen alive with the smell of fresh bread. There will also be a chance to tour Loaf’s in-house community bakery and to stock up on bread-making equipment from our shop after the course.
