Breadmaking course at Acton Scott Historic Working Farm.

Join us for a day of breadmaking and learn how easy it is to make your own delicious bread at home. You will try out a range of dough making techniques using wheat and spelt flour, then learn how to shape your dough into loaves. One of your loaves will be baked in the original wood-fired bread oven in the farm’s Bailiff’s Cottage, you will also make hot cross buns as a special Easter treat. You will leave with the bread you have made and a booklet full of bread making advice and recipes.
You will need to bring an apron and a basket to take your loaves home in.
