Learn to bake like they do on Great British Bake Off

Learn to bake break

The Great British Bake Off returns to our screens tonight and you can learn to bake on a Great British Break.

Renowned artisan bread maker, Carl Shavitz is hosting a five-day Artisan Bread School at Barsham Barns in Norfolk. The course offers would-be bakers the opportunity to learn about the unique techniques of artisan bread making.

As well as acquiring knowledge of various ingredients, temperatures and varieties of bread, bakers will learn about artisan flour from a traditional miller and sourdough cultures from an expert in the field as well as taking part in an olive oil tasting.

Shavitz has supplied handmade artisan bread to high-end restaurants and specialist shops in Cambridge and London for many years, while Barsham Barns offers chic accommodation in the Norfolk countryside.

The course will take place in Barsham’s largest barn, the Great East Barn, which sleeps 14 people in 7 rooms. Guests should arrive on Friday September 27 to settle in and enjoy a welcome reception and dinner together as a group. The course then begins Saturday morning at 09:00 and continues until Wednesday afternoon.

The course costs £1,675 per person, including five nights’ full board, tuition, course notes, recipes, ingredients and an Artisan Bread School apron.
