Advanced Baking Course

Advanced Baking Course

This one day advanced bread-making course concentrates on using a ‘Mother dough’ to produce a dough within a working day.

Taught by Clive Mellum, our Master Baker, this course concentrates on using a ‘Mother dough’ to produce a dough within a working day.

The basic laws of fermentation still apply but we will be concentrating on technique. Learn about blending flours and the reasons why we do this.

Try your hand at

  • 100% rye loaf
  • An open crumb loaf with high water absorption using 24hr saltless sponge to practise wet dough development
  • Soft rolls for baps or bridge rolls using sponges and flying sponges with the addition of natural crumb softeners
  • Scones, the typical problems which can arise and how to eradicate the variances that can occur by understanding how each of the ingredients interact with each other

Please note:

This is a very full and complex day and breaks will be governed by production. You will get more out of the day if you have previously attended the basic course.

No. of places per course: 6

Price per person includes light refreshments and lunch.

All ingredients, equipment and recipes are provided by Shipton Mill.
