About Veg Patch Kitchen

At Veg Patch Kitchen we offer bread making courses in Shropshire, with most being held at our bespoke kitchen in Ironbridge. The courses are taught by me, Kath. I am passionate about bread and the difference that making your own bread at home can make to your health and your happiness. I will teach you how easy it is to make bread at home and how you can make breadmaking part of your regular routine. You can find the full list of upcoming courses here.

Bread making in Ironbridge
The majority of our courses are run from our bespoke kitchen based in the garden of our home near Ironbridge. Our home is in a beautiful rural setting amongst woods and fields and close to the historic Ironbridge with its World Heritage Site status and ten museums managed by the Ironbridge Gorge Museums Trust. Shrewsbury, Bridgnorth, Telford and Ludlow are all easily accessible. There are hotels, b&bs and self-catering cottages nearby so you could combine your course with a short break or week-long holiday.

We offer day courses from 10am – 4pm, evening classes from 6pm – 9.30pm and sourdough courses run over an evening and the next day. Take a look at the Ironbridge course page for full details of the courses available.  You can read about a typical day of bread making with us on the blog.

We can also offer tailor made day and evening courses for groups of people, whether family, friends or for a corporate away day (maximum of five students). If you would like to come as a family group we welcome children to our courses and we can arrange a course specially for you.  Please get in touch to discuss your requirements.

Full Day Course in Clunton, South Shropshire
By special request we can offer full-day courses  in Clunton, at my sister’s house.  This offers you the opportunity to enjoy a relaxed, informative day in a beautiful 17th century farmhouse kitchen near Clun in South Shropshire honing your bread-making skills in a domestic kitchen. We pack in as much bread making as we possibly can but we also make time for tea and cake breaks and enjoy a delicious lunch in the glass garden room. So, if you are closer to South Shropshire than Ironbridge and have a group of friends or family that would love to spend the day making bread take a look at the full-day course in Clun  page for more information about the day.

Harborne Food School
In 2018 I will be running bread masterclasses at Harborne Food School in the centre of the bustling Harborne high street in Birmingham.  If you live closer to Birmingham than Shropshire then this might be an ideal way for you to enjoy one of my classes. Please contact Harborne Food School to book your place on your course with them.Booklet and scraper
