Where Bread is King.
Have you ever wondered what the windowpane effect is or what knocking back involves? Well this is the place to find out. Soda breads, yeasted loaves, savoury snacks and sweet treats, together we will make them all.
Whether you are a beginner, experienced home baker or simply a food lover our one day courses aim to take the fear out of bread making and return bread to its rightful place as ‘King of the Table’.
The Firehouse Bakery is run by chef and baker Patrick Ryan, co-author of ‘Bread Revolution’ and as seen on BBC 2’s Big Bread Experiment. Since opening the bread school in June 2012, Patrick has caught the nations imagination and wants to share his passion for great food with you.
Here is a sneak peak of some the baked treats you look forward to making during a day at the Firehouse Bread School.
