ALL ABOUT THIS EXPERIENCE

Full Day French Baking Course Dorset

Spend the day learning the fundamentals of French baking, creating classically French bakes and tasting along the way!

This informative, hands-on class reveals the secrets behind authentic French baking. Benefit from all the expertise of a highly-experienced professional, as you discover how to give your baguettes and croissants a continental je ne sais quoi.

Upon arrival, the small group will sit down to discuss the day’s programme over coffee. Your teacher, Paul, has been involved in the industry for over forty years – twenty of which have been spent teaching courses like yours. Under his capable supervision, you’ll learn to bake several traditional treats – including a walnut-studded pain de campagne, the perfect baguette, and butter-rich croissants. You’ll shape rustic boules and batards, make use of poolish ‘starters’, and practise the tricky art of ‘laminating’ dough to give gorgeously flaky results. When your creations head to the oven – and whilst you anxiously await their reappearance – you’ll enjoy a tour of the working watermill the class occupies, before the final test of your day’s labour – the tasting!

The Full Day French Baking Course, in Dorset, is a chance to refine your dough-handling skills. An Experience Days voucher makes an ideal gift for the budding boulanger in your family.
