We hold bread workshops 3 times a year. The 2013 workshops are fully booked. Dates for 2014 are Saturdays 30th March, 31st May and 30th November.
Please contact us if you are interested in booking a place. And if you don’t want to wait that long – take a look at our Bite-Sized workshops taking place in June, July and August this year.
“Your Home Baking”
A day of baking and conversation for beginning and experienced home bakers. A selection of breads will be made (and taken home) in order to learn or brush up on a range of basic skills.
Places will be limited to 7 participants. The small numbers will enable discussion to cover topics raised by participants, as well as covering general introductory matters. The workshop will aim to take beginning bakers (for example, someone who has used a bread machine but wants to do some more) or more experienced home bakers (for example, a regular bread-baker but in a rut) into some new experiences and open up some new ideas.
This workshop has now been run a number of times and has been a great success on every occasion.
To quote two previous participants:
“That workshop was just what I needed to stop my home baking from getting stuck in a comfortable rut – I enjoyed it a great deal at the time but maybe didn’t realise quite how many useful things you’d managed to teach us until later, as they cropped up in my own home baking efforts.”
“Just wanted you to know that since the workshop I attended a month ago I have been putting your help and advice to good use and making bread every week. And I am enjoying it and have not had to buy any bread at all. So, many thanks for an informative and interesting day. FJ.”
The workshop will run from 9.30am to around 3.00pm and will cost £75 + VAT per person (£90.00 in total). This will include a buffet lunch (please let us know any dietary requirements at the time of booking), all materials, recipes and some other goodies. This will all take place at Cobs Bakery, 7 Robert Davies Court, off Nuffield Road, Cambridge. Young people aged 10 to 16 years are welcome but must be accompanied by a responsible adult (which will count as 2 places). Booking, by e-mail or post, will be strictly first come, first served.
All workshops will be led by Alan Ackroyd, Head Baker at CobsBakery.com. Alan is a trained teacher who has worked in a number of child and adult educational situations.
