Held at the Acton Scott Historic Working Farm, this course is run by a master baker and covers basic breadmaking including how to mix, knead, ferment and bake dough. During the day participants will look at the types of flours and yeasts available. You will then practice shaping dough and be guided through dough development, proving and baking. You will bake your bread using everyday domestic ovens but there will also be the chance to use Acton Scott's traditional wood-fired bread oven. You will return home with a collection of freshly-baked, delicious and wholesome breads as well as the knowledge to be able to produce them in your own kitchen.
