Haven't made sourdough for a while but quite pleased. Began starter last Wednesday. 1st prove overnight in fridge.
Very time consuming but very very tasty.
My gas oven is a bit hot so will use a lower shelf next time.
I would really like to make them so I can bake them for breakfast. Can I get them to the stage where they are shaped and let them have their final rise overnight in the fridge?
French Bread masterclass today. They taste as good as they look!
Very excited, my first successful baguettes. I've tried over the years, but this morning watched the video and my daughter and I made them this afternoon. Waiting for 30 minutes before we try them 😆
First attempt at cinnamon buns today with the online masterclass
Just completed my Cinnamon Bun masterclass, really enjoyed, found it soo easy to follow and the results are yummy! Thank you Les for spending the day with me!
I treated my daughter and I to the online cinnamon roll tutorial. The video was great, with clear instructions, lots of extra info and tips and lovely views of the bakery and surrounding area. We are lucky enough to live just a few miles away.
After the video we printed of the recipe and started off. My daughter has an acquired brain injury, so needs assistance, but she persevered and you can see the result.
They taste fantastic, we had them warm from the oven with a glass of red wine and today had more with cappuccinos.
Note: we glazed them with my home made crab apple jelly, gently warmed without the water added. Next time I will try using fresh yeast.

Next project.....baguettes

Hopefully the bakehouse will be open for the 2 day bread course I have booked for the end of February 🙏
Best start to the day, baked a sourdough loaf using starter from the Glorious Grain day course....
Wonderful day today.... Making breads, eating, drinking and dodging the raindrops!
Thank you Louise (and Les) as well as Mike from (Noble and Stace), fab day on Wednesday in the Bake Off tent learning chocolate skills. Great day, good food and nice company.
Victoria sponge and a cup of Darjeeling. Flour from my order I picked up on Saturday. 🍰🥂🥰
Malthouse sourdough.

So 19th July marks 'freedom day' but we have decided after much customer feedback to continue our classes in what has now affectionately been called 'The Bake Off Tent' to enable us to :-
💚 Provide good ventilation
💚 Space to distance if you want to
💚A one way system
💚We will continue with strict sanitising & hand washing
💚 And if you want to continue to wear a mask please do, no judgement here!

We know this gives us more overheads but our priority is our team & customers and we just want everyone to feel comfortable, relaxed and safe to come and enjoy all that our classes offer ☺️

Yay! It's World Chocolate Day!

🎉Its unclear who came up with this yummy food day. However, the day is celebrated on July 7th because it was on this date in 1550 that chocolate was first brought to Europe.
🎉Nine out of ten people love chocolate. About 1 billion people eat chocolate every day. Besides the fact it tastes so good, there are some health benefits of chocolate too - yay!
🎉Can't wait for our next chocolate making masterclasses 1st & 2nd Sept with Noble and Stace Chocolatiers

🎉How will you be celebrating today ?
(Personally we love a brownie with rich dark chocolate 😋)

♥️ "A huge thank you for today, I had the most amazing & inspirational day...Your hospitality was so generous & warm, it felt like I was on holiday not just a course, the food was delicious, a truly memorable day thank you!"

Happy Sussex Day ! And what a glorious day it is!
❤️ We are always so grateful to run our business from such a picturesque, beautiful hideaway in sleepy rural Ashurst, West Sussex.
❤️ People often comment that we are one of Sussex's hidden gems.
❤️ Of course we like to think so too but the county is so abundant with glorious unspoilt rolling countryside, miles of beaches, fabulous food & drink producers, wonderful people and so many small craft businesses that really do help to make up the rich tapestry that we proudly call Sussex!
❤️ If you've never explored Sussex, come stay !
❤️ And if you already know it, today is the day to really celebrate all it offers !
