Having left a corporate career, Rhiannon re-trained on a microbakery course in late 2012 and set about establishing The Epsom Bakehouse in 2013. Selling delicious handmade artisan breads and bakes, she established a loyal following through a local Farmers Market stall.
In 2014, The Epsom Bakehouse expanded to offer a range of small, informative bread making courses. Rhiannon is an enthusiastic teacher who makes baking and learning fun. All classes are held in Epsom, Surrey. ‘I started the classes because I really enjoy teaching, and I meet a diverse range of students’ Rhiannon explains. ‘There’s a wow moment that I love when a loaf of bread they’ve baked themselves comes out of the oven’.
During a class, you’ll get hands-on mixing, kneading and shaping various dough, plus you’ll get simple hints and tips to ensure you can get baking great bread at home with ease. Students come away with armfuls of fresh-baked bread, plus notes and recipes to use at home. Class sizes are small, with plenty of time for questions and discussions. A light lunch is included on the day.
