Have a go at making sourdough breads, yeasted loaves, savoury snacks and sweet treats. Whether you are a beginner,an experienced baker, or simply a food lover our one day bread courses aims to take the fear out of bread making and return bread to its rightful place as ‘king of the table’

Run by chef and baker Patrick Ryan, co-author of ‘Bread Revolution’ and as seen on BBC Two’s ‘Big Bread Experiment’ Patrick has returned home to share his passion for great food with you. Patrick promises to accompany beyond the limitations of bread books and take you on a hands on journey through the world of real bread. This is a hands on experience so prepare to get floured!
