Bake it real!

Saturday 18th Sept 2010 10 am – 5 pm at Jewel & Esk College

This was a great oppor­tun­ity to spend a day mak­ing your own deli­cious bread with well-known artis­an baker and teach­er Andrew Whitley, for a frac­tion of the cost of a cook­ery school!

A dozen of us learnt the secrets of fer­ment­a­tion using yeast and sour­dough, how to shape, prove and bake a vari­ety of breads – and much more!

Andrew Whitley star­ted The Village Bakery in Cumbria in 1976, using loc­al stone­ground wheat and wood-fired ovens. He’s now moved to Macbiehill where he teaches bak­ing and is help­ing to start a com­munity bakery at Whitmuir Organic Farm. He is co-founder of the Real Bread Campaign and author of the award-win­ning book Bread Matters.

The course cost £20 which covered all mater­i­als, but not lunch.

If you missed this course, but would be inter­ested in us run­ning it again, or some­thing else, please con­tact polly [at] ped­al-porty [dot] org [dot] uk or phone the office on 0131 258 4483.

  1. I hostessed on the bread­mak­ing course, and at half term thought I should really make some bread as I hadn’t made any since the course. So, I made lovely 80% white 20% rye loaves for my fam­ily every day! Even my 5-year old daugh­ter loved them! Felt so much more con­fid­ent to just go for it after being on the course, I am ask­ing for the book for christ­mas!

    • Hi Jan, I’m afraid the course is now fully booked. We will place you on the wait­ing list in case there is a can­cel­la­tion. Otherwise, we’ll let you know if and when we run anoth­er course. Sorry, the course was very pop­u­lar!
