We had such a fabulous day learning to bake bread from scratch with all natural and healthy ingredients. Delicious!!

A really good day learning about the types of bread and actually making them. Great recommendation and I will definitely come back again for a different course.

Thank you for a really enjoyable day. Made wonderful pizza and bread - think I will struggle to eat shop bought again.

I enjoyed the course immensely. Before this I thought "Stromboli" was an obscure volcano in Italy; now I know how to bake one and eat it! Highly recommended.
