Breads of the World - French classics

Join us for a wonderful class focusing on the unrivalled breads of France. This class can be taken by beginners but is best suited to more experienced bakers comfortable with working with yeast dough and keen to expand into more advanced shaping.

We will kick off with a Fougasse, the  classic Provençal leaf-shaped bread and a rustic Pain Campagnard with raisins and walnuts which we will later enjoy with some cheese and honey. We then move on to a classic wheat-stalk shaped Pain d’Epi – celebrated both for its appearance and for being “the crustiest bread there is”, a wonderful Pain au Fromage using delicious Savoyard Comté and as our pièce de resistance, a magnificent glazed Apricot Couronne. The class starts with fresh bread, tea and coffee and includes a light lunch with fresh bread and cheese.

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.
