Another wonderful day of bread making was had by all when five students gathered to learn about the basics of bread making last Sunday. We made white loaves, iced buns, chelsea buns, fougasse and focaccia. We drank lots of tea with three cakes to choose from (clementine, ginger and chocolate, in case you are wondering) and a delicious lunch served by Leena.

We had a wonderful day of baking with three lovely ladies last Sunday. The course was bought as a present for one of the ladies’ special birthdays. A lovely day of celebration was had, with lots of tea, cake and a tasty lunch. We made some enriched dough, with two of the course participants choosing to make chelsea buns, another chose hot cross buns and I made iced fingers. They were all absolutely delicious. In fact, the hot cross buns were the best I have ever tasted.
We also made some focaccia and fougasse from an olive oil dough, which looked amazing. I was so pleased to hear that the focaccia has been a big hit back home and that one of the ladies’ sons has made it himself in the week since the course so that he can enjoy it at breakfast time. That is why I started these courses, to hear stories just like that.
A happy day of baking
