Our motto is "100% Bread" - we only ever use a 100% of the grain and never use additives.

Our aim is to teach you how to bake, learn skills, gain confidence and leave with a good understanding of the health benefits of using all natural and fresh ingredients.

We cater for all levels of experience on our workshops; from absolute beginners to masterchefs in the making.

A truly inspirational day of sourdough making. What Vicky doesn't know about bread making, clearly isn't worth knowing! We packed so much into our day; learning about heritage grains and milling, making our own sourdough starter, through to, how to make a sponge, kneading and baking loaves, flat breads and cottage buns. What fun, in a beautiful workshop and lots of goodies to take home. Vicky is a lovely thoughtful lady, with lots of knowledge and a passion for good food. - Tracey

Just spent a really enjoyable day with Vicky learning about sourdough. Would thoroughly recommend a course at the baking school, Vicky is an excellent teacher who has a real passion for all things related to baking. I enjoyed it so much have booked a four day intensive baking course at the beginning of December. - Gigi

I attended a basic bread making course today and it was fantastic. We made and baked 3 different loaves, which we took home, still lovely and warm straight from the oven. You will learn about flour milling, different flours, kneading bread and more importantly how to tell when it's fully baked. I had a great day and it was a wonderful Christmas present from my partner. Would make a wonderful gift for anyone wanting to know more about baking bread. - Alka
