  1. Artisan Bread School

    Artisan Bread School
    On all Artisan Bread School courses an emphasis is placed on sourdough bread, with participants creating their own sourdough culture, learning how to maintain it, store and refresh it prior to bread-making.

  6. How to use Bakers' Percentages

    The recipes that most of us are familiar with use specific weights of flour, leaven, salt etc in grams, teaspoons, tablespoons, cups or ounces. But what if you would like to make the recipe a little larger, or a lot larger?

Making an odd proportion of the original recipe, say 3/4 or 2.5 times is much more prone to error. Read More
