The Event

Join plant based naturopath, Sharon Gardner, to learn how to make easy delicious breads using one basic recipe. Using easy-to-find ingredients, Sharon will show you a tried and tested fool proof bread recipe which can be used to make different types of breads from a ciabatta loaf, to baguettes and bread rolls.

The session will include:

  • The basics of no-knead dough
  • The science behind a long proving time (fermentation)
  • Handling and shaping dough
  • Best baking techniques to produce a rustic loaf
  • Time for a short Q&A 
  • Recipe handout

You will need to make your dough the night before or by 9am using this video link so that you can shape and bake your bread during the class. Tickets will be available until 9am on the morning of the class for this reason.
