Cooking and Other Culinary Skills


Never run out of bread again after you’ve completed this hands-on workshop.

You’ll learn how to make two quick, easy, and delicious bread recipes -  a versatile soda bread and a nutty fruit loaf. Both recipes are yeast-free. One needs no kneading at all and the other about a minute only. Both loaves keep well and toast beautifully. They also freeze well so you can build up a good supply of bread to keep on hand for those unexpected visitors.

All you need to bring are two of your own loaf tins, a large mixing bowl and an apron please. All the other ingredients are included in the cost of the course.

This workshop will be held in the kitchen at Haddon Community Learning Centre so the number of participants is strictly limited to 5. However, a second workshop can be arranged for June/July if there is enough interest.
