Details

All our chefs are skilled and passionate artisan bakers, with decades of experience. We share all that skill in all our one hundred percent hands on bread making classes. As a cookery school our role is to share our knowledge and empower our guests.

This class will de-mystify sour dough and make it accessible for home bakers. The class allows for Q&As and a friendly and helpful teaching style. The focus is on key factors for successful sour dough baking – temperature control and timing.

Sour dough is by far the most delicious and healthy of breads. It offers resistance demanding chewing, which aids digestion, it tastes like bread used to and it has a low GI which further aids digestion and delivers slow release energy. What’s not to like?

We make one classic sour dough loaf and some lovely seeded semi-sour dough rolls using both a starter and a small amount of dry yeast. This recipes demonstrates how sour dough can be made quicker when that is required, by adding a very small amount of dry commercial yeast to the starter-based dough. Our third recipe for the class is a sour dough version of our Swedish cinnamon rolls.

We start by gathering around for morning coffee or tea with something freshly baked, and finish off by enjoying a light lunch with freshly made bread, while the final trays of bread bake.

The class includes full recipe packs, 3 sour dough based bakes, a slow rising dough made in class and taken home to bake off the next day and also your own freshly created starter which will hopefully be the mother of many doughs and breads to come.

WE DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS CLASS FOR NOVICE BAKERS AS SOUR DOUGH IS SO DRASTICALLY DIFFERENT FROM NORMAL BREAD. WE VERY MUCH SUGGEST THAT YOU START BY TAKING OUR BEGINNERS’ BREAD CLASS.

We are found at the very end of Purbeck Road (off Hills Rd by the sixth form centre) where you turn left by Abbey college and then carry straight on for about 60m to the white awnings you will see ahead.

Please note that there is very limited parking on site. We recommend the multi storey at the Leisure Centre less than 10min walk away or the Babraham Park & Ride which stops on Hills Road, very close to Purbeck Rd.

CANCELLATIONS: 72h prior to class to move to a future date and 7 days for a full refund
