Beautiful Breads

29th February 2024

/ 5 hr, including lunch

Class Description

Romilla Arber has been baking bread for many years and is passionate about real bread, made traditionally. She firmly believes that good-quality bread doesn’t make you fat! Industrialised, mass produced bread is the perfect example of how our food culture has broken down. It is made with only profit in mind not what is best for the health of the customer.

 

On this course you will make a variety of breads (there will be plenty to take home) and enjoy a simple lunch with a glass of wine. You too can fall in love with the art of bread making and learn how to make exquisite artisan loaves in your own kitchen.

 

Romilla is the author or two cookery books and she has won the prestigious Gourmand Best UK Cookbook award for her second book. She is a passionate advocate of eating a balanced diet and in 2008 founded the Food Education Trust with the aim of working with schools to promote the benefits of home-cooked food.

 

Romilla is the founder and owner of The Honesty Group which includes the Crown and Garter at Inkpen and the Hartley Arms at Donnington.

 

Lunch Included:

Your workshop will include a light lunch of Honesty seasonal soup, a selection of breads and  cheeses from our farm shop.

 

All abilities welcome

FAQs

What is a Cook Together ticket?

Cook Together tickets allow an adult and a child between 10 – 18 years to book onto a course for a cheaper price. You will work together at the same workstation and produce enough food for you both to eat. This is part of our drive to encourage young people to enjoy cooking from scratch.

Can I book for a large group?

We have eight workstations and accommodate larger groups by working in pairs or small groups around each station. People often report they enjoy working in this way as it makes the event sociable and allows people to take a short break from the cooking as there are others to take over.

Who can attend these classes?

Most of our scheduled courses are for adults only. However, where you see a ‘Cook Together’ ticket offered then you can book for a place for a child over the age of 10 years with an adult.

It is also possible to book a bespoke course for children with an adult from the party remaining in charge of the group. Please make enquiries to cookeryschool@honestygroup.co.uk

Do I need to be a confident cook?

We welcome people of all cooking experience and abilities. Our tutors will assess and adjust to your needs.

What if I have a food allergy or special dietary need?

Some of our courses can accommodate allergies and special dietary requirements however for others the replacement of one ingredient for another will not work. As there is such a range in what people require we request that you ask at the time of booking by emailing cookeryschool@honestygroup.co.uk

What should I wear/bring with me?

All ingredients and equipment are provided, including aprons. For a cookery course we advise wearing layers as the cookery school can heat up once the ovens and hobs are on. Closed shoes are also requested for health and safety purposes and a band to tie back longer hair.

If you are attending a course that could be messy please adjust your clothing to take account of this.

We hope to make our courses as sustainable as possible and so request that customers bring containers to take home any food left over at the end of a course.
