The class includes :

4hour baking session at The Flour Pot Bakery HQ

Our Senior Bakers will teach you how to knead, shape and bake a range of sourdough and yeasted artisan breads. During the course, you will also learn how to create and maintain a sourdough starter.

The course will take place at our production bakery, all bread will be baked on our stone-deck ovens. The day will start with coffee and freshly baked Flour Pot treats. Lunch will also be included; this is a good opportunity to pick our Senior Bakers minds on any questions you may
have on how to create the perfect loaf.

Along with all the freshly baked bread you will have made that day and the recipes to go along with them, you will go home with a Flour Pot branded apron, your very own tote bag, and your sourdough starter to get you on the journey to better bread!

Just bring yourself and any bread questions you have.

This will take place at our Production bakery
on Saturday 24th March at 11am.
