The Chiswick Calendar – July ’24

| 11th July 2024

Our latest post on The Chiswick Calendar outlines the highlights of our most popular course Introduction to Making Bread

This week, I’ve run my favourite course, Introduction to Making Bread, not once – but twice, and also spent a whole day with a local primary school teaching their Year 3 pupils how to make bread – yes all 90 children took home their own loaf that they made by hand with me…

I’m not sure why I enjoy ‘Intro to Bread’ so much, it could be the leisurely welcome, getting to know the guests over fresh coffee and warm buns, it could be the pleasure of watching each guest develop baking skills that will last a lifetime, the pizza lunch is always a winner (each guest makes their own and I pop out to the garden to pick fresh salad leaves as an accompaniment) washed down with elderflower cordial – again from the garden.

However, the biggest delight is probably the surprise at the end of the day when each guest marvels at all their wonderful creations, packing them up to take home and amazed at just how much there is… and I simply say ‘You made all that – you should be really pleased with yourself’ – sometimes I even break into that Heather Small song ‘What have you done today to make you feel proud?’
