Learn how to make bread the easy way

At Veg Patch Kitchen Cookery School we show you how to make delicious bread the easy way so that you can easily fit bread making into your busy day.

The courses are taught by me, KathI am passionate about good food and in particular about bread and the difference that making your own bread at home can make to your health and your happiness.

Online courses available now

Because you can’t come to our classes in Ironbridge right now, as social distancing isn’t possible, I have created an online masterclass that you can take at your own pace and in the comfort of your own home.

Bread Made Easy is a comprehensive course that takes you step by step through the bread making process and will transform you from a baking novice to a confident bread maker. It’s like coming along to our full-day Bread Basics course here in Ironbridge but without the travel. You have ongoing access to the course too for at least 12 months so you can revisit it often and practise your new skills.

Our Christmas Breads course is suitable for those already familiar with bread making but want to learn how to make delicious festive breads to share with family and friends.

Bread making and cookery courses in Ironbridge

We offer full-day courses from 10am – 4pm, half-day courses from 10am-1.30pm and evening classes from 6pm – 9.30pm. Take a look at the Ironbridge course page for full details of the courses available. Please note: We are currently closed due to not being able to safely socially distance in our small cookery school. We will reopen as soon as it is safe to do so. 

At our cookery school we 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). So, if you would like to come as a group we can arrange a course specially for you. Please get in touch to discuss your requirements.

Full and half-day gift vouchers are available to buy as a special present for a loved one.
