Full Day Croissant & Sweet Dough course, £120

Our croissant and sweet dough course teaches you to make a variety of delicious sweet breads. We make a laminated dough to make croissants and pain au chocolat. We also make a sweet dough to make your choice of Chelsea buns, Shropshire butter buns or iced fingers.

This course is suitable for beginners and those that have already mastered bread making. You will learn:

  • all about laminating dough to make delicious croissants
  • how to mix your enriched dough properly
  • the effect of adding fats (butter, eggs, milk) to your dough
  • how to use the different yeasts
  • different shaping techniques
  • how to bake your dough

You take home all of your goodies that you make during the day. Your croissants are taken home unbaked so that you can pop them in the freezer and bake at a later date. You also take home my recipe/advice booklet.

We start the day with a cup of tea/coffee and cake and enjoy a delicious home made lunch and refreshments throughout the day.
