Traditional English bread workshop

Traditional English bread workshop

Bring back some old recipes and learn to bake them at home. The classic Bloomer, the Country Loaf, the Split Tin and my favourites the Kentish Huffkin and Cornish Saffron Cake. Whilst we happily devour French and Italian breads we should keep alive our own traditional loaves and love making them at home. The Kentish Huffkin has almost died out but we are on a mission to bring it back. Come join us bake these English classics!
