Perhaps you have fond memories of traditional delights... or maybe you're about to discover some wonderful new bakes

You'll learn how to make the famous stottie (as seen on TV: BBC2 Robson Green's Weekend Escapes) : a hearty North East flattened bap sufficient to fill and take down a mine and truly wonderful filled with local ham and pease pudding; quick as you please Singing Hinnies that melt in the mouth; a golden Sally Lunn Cake ready to slice and fill with clotted cream and a long-lasting lardy cake, oh so naughty but the perfect tonic after a day of digging in the garden.

Roll up your sleeves on this hands-on course and we'll delve into the delights of Traditional English Breads. We'll cover all the basics: the different types of yeasts, kneading and proving, shaping and finally baking your array of breads. We'll relax over a 2-course lunch by 'Papaya' - you'll have earned it!
You'll depart with recipes and a veritable feast of your warm, handmade breads along with a passion to continue your 'bread journey'.

We seriously think Lardy Cake needs a rebrand, as Deborah, on the last course, so aptly suggested after tasting this delicious, crisp, buttery, laminated indulgent cake: ‘Let’s call it Linnels Layer Cake‘ and Peter then piped up: ‘Luscious Linnels Layer Cake!’
