The Best Of Bread

Midweek from £205 per person

Looking for inspiration or to get to grips with your dough? We will take you through the what, why, when, where and how of bread making so that you can make the perfect loaf whatever the ingredient or shape.

At the start of the day you will meet our Baker who will show you around our new Bakery in The Kitchen, discuss our homemade bread for the hotel and of course give you some freshly baked bread to taste as inspiration for the day. We will then head back to the cookery school to get hands on with a variety of doughs. Celebrate our amazing kitchen garden and home grown ingredients with a trio of breads in our signature clay flower pots.

Whether you have 10 minutes or several hours at home to make a bread you will leave with breads, recipes and inspiration for any occasion.
