"I went on the Essential Bread course and came away with oatcakes, pitta bread, two different loaves and a collection of bread rolls. I also came away with a lot more knowledge about bread making. And I had an enjoyable and social day. Colin is very welcoming and able to reassure the most nervous bread maker. But the results were fantastic and I will never buy oatcakes again!"
