A gorgeous, crusty, hand-made loaf can make even the simplest meal heart-warmingly memorable. It is also far better for your health.

Home-baking skips the mega-dose of chemicals found in much store-bought bread, while slow fermentation lowers GI and makes nutrients more accessible to your body. It's good news for every body!

Content and Overview

Our hands-on course walks you step-by-step through five different projects, each designed to highlight different aspects of artisan baking.

We'll take you through the uninterrupted 'straight run' from mixing to baking on each project, and we'll also show you how to use your fridge if you want to slow down the process. This creates flexibility so you can easily fit the baking around your life, not fit your life around the baking!

These will give you a practical grasp of such concepts as kneading and gluten development, fast or slow fermentation, the relationship between rising time and dough temperature, hydration, leavens, proving, shaping and baking.

Mastering basic artisan breads will give you the confidence to impress your friends and family and to create recipes of your own.
