• Festive Baking Course

    • Christmas is a wonderful time of year for baking festive treats to share with family and friends. Here at Hobbs House Bakery we have filled this special class with a variety of delicious breads from around the world to inspire you. Studded with luxurious dried fruits and nuts and flavoured with aromatic spices and oils, we’ll be baking a light and airy Italian pandoro, a fun twist on marzipaned German stolen, a darkly nutty Finnish rye bread fragrant with spices and showing you how to add some sparkle to savoury breads perfect for parties.

      Enriched, sweetened breads can often be tricky to get right, so our expert tutor will guide you through, step-by-step, with lots of baking tips and advice, giving you the confidence to bake with great results back at home.  The class features a range of different techniques, flours and flavours so whether you are new to bread making or more experienced and looking for something different, this hands-on class has something for everyone.

      The day will begin with coffee and pastries and end with a festive lunch. As well as taking home a bag full of bread you’ve baked, take the opportunity to stock up on your seasonal Hobbs House Bakery treats and get ahead of the game.
