In this workshop we’ll make a couple of different Scandinavian inspired buns.

You’ll receive recipes and advice to help you bake these buns at home.
Rye breads are very popular across northern Europe, giving an enormous variety to the bread cultures of Germany and the Scandinavian nations particularly. Rye bread is easy to make, stays fresh for a long while, and has fantastic flavour. In this workshop we will look at how rye flour differs from wheat flour, creating some delicious rye crispbreads, as well as a light rye loaf. We will have a light smörgåsbord to accompany some of the bread we’ve created, and will be able to discuss the different techniques needed to work with rye dough.

Suitable for novices and those with baking experience. You will receive a light meal of pizza, recipes, and bread to take home.
