The Brighton & Hove Food Partnership's Community Kitchen is a cookery school where everyone can cook, learn new skills and enjoy food with others. We want everyone to experience the benefits of cooking and eating together. By paying for a cookery class, you help other people to attend cookery activities, regardless of finance, confidence or ability, and to make lasting changes to their lives.
The joy of eating tasty, artisan breads is something many of us appreciate, but making your own at home is something special. Classically trained chef, Cat Rochefort, will show you just how easy it is!
Your chef will lead you through the mixing, rising, knocking back, shaping and proving - processes that won’t be hurried in this laid-back session, which will include a shared lunch of sourdough frying pan pizza.
Learn a range of techniques including: shaping a loaf, shaping individual buns, how to tell if your bread is proved, how to tell if you have kneaded for long enough, how to tell if your bread is cooked, handling different types of dough and how to make an enriched dough. You will leave the course replete with new skills, a lovely meal as well as your bread to take home.
The course is suitable for beginners as well as more experienced bakers looking for new ideas and expert advice on their techniques.
By the end of the class you will create:
- Confit garlic and rosemary focaccia
- Chocolate brioche buns
- White seeded sandwich loaf
- A shared lunch of sourdough frying pan pizza with a range of vegetarian toppings
