Breads and Pastries

Breads and Pastries

Duration: 1 Day

If you think making your own bread is too much like hard work, think again.  Kneading bread can be very therapeutic and the end results definitely make the effort worthwhile.  This new course will show you how to perfect your kneading technique to create the perfect dough for sweet and savoury breads and give you some great ideas for the endless flavours and fillings that can be used.

The course also includes the secrets of perfect sweet pastry and a divine baked cheesecake.       

  • Bread Making 
  • Blue Cheese Baps
  • Pizza Dough.
  • Chelsea Buns      
  • Successful Sweet Pastry       
  • Baked Vanilla Cheesecake      

The day begins at 9.30am and we invite you to join us with a welcome tea or coffee in the cookery school’s dining room from 9.00am, where you will have a chance to meet your fellow delegates and chef. Your chef will talk you through the class menu and how the day will run before you are assigned a workspace in our fully equipped kitchen, overlooking the beautiful estate at Braxted Park.

The step-by-step tuition is fun and easy to follow and the cookery school team will be available to assist you throughout the day.

At the end of a full day of cooking, everyone’s efforts will be rewarded with a glass of wine and a sit-down meal that has been cooked during the day, where hints and tips can be shared with the group while enjoying the food that you have prepared.


Please note that the dishes listed may vary due to the availability of fresh produce as a result of seasonal changes.
