About The Artisan Bakery School

The Artisan Bakery School was first established in 2008. Partners Penny & Dragan remain as passionate about teaching baking skills for breads, pastries and pizza, as when we first began. We also love hosting baking guests in our Devon home, and enjoying good food by the fire or in the garden. Baking makes people more self-reliant, more responsible for their own health, and generally much, much happier! Why not join us?

Croissants, pastries & brioche: Viennoiserie day at The Artisan Bakery School
Devon
£175
Delectable pastries, hand-crafted by you! Viennoiserie means 'things from Vienna' - in this case, delicious things created from a laminated (layered) or non-laminated yeasted dough, and supposedly invented by the Viennese (although the French did their fair share!). By the end of the day, you will be able to make your own mouth-watering croissants, pain au chocolat, frangipane butterflies and a selection of Danish pastries. You will also learn how to make a feather-light, buttery brioche, and ways of making it either traditionally, as brioche a tete, or as a...

Brilliant baking without the gluten.

On your day at The Artisan Bakery School, you will learn the different properties of flours made from nuts, beans, grains and vegetable starches and how to blend your own house flours for maximum convenience. You will discover the mechanics of gluten-free baking and how to...
