smchallah0004.jpgsmbrioche0002.jpgAt this class you will learn how to make a range of festive breads perfect for the coming holiday season, including Jewish braided challah, buttery brioche, traditional Dresden stollen and Italian panettone.

After this intensive workshop you will understand how eggs, fat, milk and sugar work to enrich doughs, how to shape three- and four-strand braids, classic brioches à têtes, fruit-laden stollen loaves and tall panettones.  We will also cover the importance of long fermentation periods, essential for developing complex flavours in bread, and how to fit bread-baking into busy lives.  Plus you will learn how to use up leftover festive bread to make delicious puddings.

smbrioche0007.jpgpanettone0001.jpgThis class is perfect for anyone who wants to get baking for the festive season and spoil their friends and family with outstanding home-made treats.  This is a hands-on class.  You will leave laden with plenty of freshly baked bread and feeling confident to make more at home.

The workshop includes a delicious seasonal lunch showcasing different types of bread, with wine.
