The smell of home made bread is one that conjures up memories for many of us. We all love homemade bread but don’t always have time to make it. During this session you might be surprised at how easy and quick it can be as we make 3 different varieties of bread:- levened (flowerpot), soda and focaccia. You will also learn more about the nutritional and cost benefits of homemade cooking, you will take home what you make and receive recipe cards for the items you have cooked so that you are ready to make these again at home.

What are you doing to keep learners safe?

The safety of our learners and staff is our top priority and we’ve made some big changes to our centres, from socially-distanced training rooms to staggered start times. Although things will look different, our staff will be as friendly and helpful as ever and we’re really excited to welcome learners back.

If you’re concerned about visiting one of our centres, please get in touch so we can discuss it with you.
