Shropshire Hills Discovery Centre launched their spring cookery courses on Saturday. The centre, in Craven Arms, South Shropshire is introducing a range of cookery courses, including Asian, Cajun Carribbean and International Cuisines courses.
I am teaching an evening of Bread Making for Beginners at the centre on Wednesday 23rd March.
Saturday was a chance to showcase all of the courses. The centre was buzzing with people visiting the farmer’s market, the craft fair, the centre’s cafe and the secret hills exhibition. I did a half-hour demonstration of how a basic white dough can be shaped into a wide range of different breads. I shaped fougasse, focaccia, turkish pide, a round loaf, a batard, a cottage loaf and a braid. I baked the fougasse so that the crowd could sample some of it. The demonstration flew by in the blink of an eye.
If you would like to book the bread making course, or any of the other courses, contact the Shropshire Hills Discovery Centre to book your place.
