Introduction to Bread - Real Bread - Dublin
I’m a trained chef and naturally leavened bread enthusiast with a background in working in a number of bakeries before setting up my own company Bread Nation. I have worked in Ballymaloe Cookery school were I learnt a true how to treat ingredients with the utmost respect. After Ballymaloe I was involved in setting up the Firehouse bakery and became its head baker. I have travelled the world from San Francisco to Ballycastle perfecting my skills in between and have had the fortune of working with some amazing bakers and I wish to share the skills I have learnt to help you make real bread.
I’ll teach you how to make an homemade bread from scratch using a variety of methods.
Everyone is encouraged to have a laugh, while everyone gets "hands-on” bread making experience at a relaxed pace, and our team are always on hand to insure that our customers every need is catered to. After a quick introduction it’s down to business. We start by weighing our ingredients and making a variety of breads. We teach you how to make and sustain a sourdough starter, along with teaching you how to knead and make a variety of breads in different shapes and sizes. The primary objective is to help you build confidence in all aspects of real bread making.
Courses 8-12 people and suitable for all abilities.
We can also run bespoke group classes during the week which can be tailored to your personal requirements. Contact us for more informations.
Our courses start at 6 pm sharp. Because our bakery is located in an industrial premises people who arrive after 6pm will not be able to access the premises and will forfeit their course at their own expense.
The class costs €99 for the day and includes recipes, a light welcome spread with teas/coffee. And plenty of bread of course! You will also get 10% off in our shop if you’d like to buy any additional baking equipment, cook books or organic produce to take home.
Bring a bag with you for carting the breads you make home with you!
