Bread & Butter

We had a really successful bread and butter course on Wednesday at Ironbridge. The room was set up for the four course participants and we had a busy and fun evening of bread making and butter churning.

We made a wholemeal wheat or spelt dough using the folding method, a white dough, kneaded on the table. We shaped these into bannetons, tins or focaccia and baked them off ready for the participants to take home with them. They all turned out beautifully.

We churned some cream into butter to finish the evening off.

I received some lovely comments from the course participants:

“It was a really great evening Kath, thank you, already had a taste of the bread and butter for supper .. Lovely.  Thanks again for a really lovely evening….. Definitely going to do more bread baking, you have really inspired us..going to take some to a team meeting tomorrow for a tasting session.”
“Thank you so much for a lovely evening. I had a great time and am looking forward to trying the recipes again – hopefully with the same success as last night.”
