Can anyone resist the smell of freshly baked bread? Making your own bread is so rewarding and satisfying and not as hard or time consuming as people think. This one day course is great for people who are looking to gain more confidence in making bread. We will start with a basic dough and then show you how to create more complex and flavoured breads.

Here are examples of what we will make on the day:

  • Basic dough- good for rolls, loaves, pizzas.
  • Enriched doughs - Cinnamon and Brown Sugar Doughs, Aberdeen Butteries (which once mastered will give you confidence to master croissants, Danish Pastries etc)
  • Using specialty flours - rye/spelt - French Country Bread
  • Italian Breads - Stromboli, filled with Mozzarella, Pesto, Parma Ham, and Basil- a very clever bread which is great for picnics, a real tear and share bread.
  • Then to save your muscles we will also look at quick non yeast breads, such as Irish Soda Bread

And all these lovely breads made on the course will go home with you at the the end of the day. Have plenty of friends and family waiting at home!

Our short Cookery Courses are a great way to learn new skills and flavour ideas in a fun and relaxed atmosphere at our Perthshire cookery school. They are suitable for all levels, from the complete beginner, to someone who is looking to broaden their culinary repertoire.

Here is what to expect on the one day courses:

  • Small and informal classes.
  • Coffee and Home Baking on arrival.
  • Mixture of demonstrations & practical sessions; we believe that you can’t really get to grips with something unless you get your hands dirty!
  • All ingredients are weighed out for you in advance, giving you more time to spend on cooking.
  • All washing up done
  • A chance to eat your creations with a well deserved glass of wine. Or a light lunch will be provided if we have not cooked a meal.
  • Any dishes not eaten can be taken away - download our Storage & Reheat Guide:

  • A recipe booklet to take home with you.
  • Aprons provided.

We will be in contact with you the week before the course starts and will let you know if you need to bring any containers to take home some of the dishes you have prepared.

The classes make great presents. Please call or email to ask about gift vouchers or you can now buy a voucher online. For more information on any of the one day courses, please do call or email.

Happy Customers

We had a fantastic day with you yesterday on the intro to bread making course. It was really well planned out day- I liked the mix of demos and practical work. Super enthusiasm and energy from you kept the group going all day, the bread is absolutely divine! Cant quite believe we made it. The location is fabulous - the facility is beautifully put together. Small touches appreciated - homemade soup, recipe cards to take home, ingredients all measured out, hayleigh's washing up skills, endless tea/coffee supplies! Excellent communication from booking to course date. Perfect gift idea
