Bakers were powerful credit brokers during the Middle Ages in France. They would often loan out bread as currency or as a form of credit. King Louis IV said, “He who controls a nation’s bread is a greater ruler than he who controls their souls.”
This class teaches an original technique to create a light airy dough, going on to create baguettes, ciabatta, olive bread and a delicious specialty bread, flavoured with gruyere cheese and cumin. In this class you will be working with a variety of flours and using a sourdough starter which gives structure and flavour to the bread you will be baking.

Regardless of your level of experience we guarantee that you will be making an impressive bread in your own kitchen in no time!
