What to expect from the Ciabatta, Baguettes and Bagels course
Our full day Ciabatta, Baguettes and Bagels course introduces you to slow dough. Each of these breads uses a pre-ferment. A pre-ferment is a portion of the dough made with a very small amount of yeast that is left to ferment for several hours before adding to the rest of the ingredients. This technique improves the flavour and texture of the bread.
You will learn:
- about the different pre-ferments that you can use and how to prepare them – biga, poolish, pate fermentee
- about mixing these doughs and the difference in hydration in each of these breads
- how to shape these very different breads and
- how to bake them
This course is more suitable for those that are already familiar with bread making but can also be enjoyed by a novice bread maker.
Our classes are small so that everyone has individual attention.
The course includes refreshments throughout the day and a home made lunch. You take home all of your breads and a recipe/ advice booklet.
