Ciabatta, Baguettes & Bagels Course

Full day Ciabatta, Baguettes & Bagels class, £140, Ironbridge


If you are already familiar with the basics of bread then our Ciabatta, Baguettes and Bagels course might be perfect for you. On this course I will show you how to make bread using pre-ferments to improve the flavour and texture of your loaves. Making these three different breads will show you how to handle doughs with caring hydration levels. You will also learn new shaping techniques and different ways to bake your bread.

Our courses in Ironbridge are on hold from January 2023. If you would like to join me for a Ciabatta, Baguette and Bagels course please add your name to the waitlist and I will be in touch when demand for the courses return. You can read more about this decision here.

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.

How about an online course instead?

I offer a comprehensive range of online courses that you can take in the comfort of your own home at your pace. You can buy these individually or become a member to enjoy them all plus join me for a monthly live demo and bread chat. You can find out more information here.
