Join this 5 day artisan bread baking course (3 full baking days) in the host's very own micro-bakery in the hills of Andalucia, just 30 minutes from the vibrant city of Granada; roll up your sleeves and get hands-on to prepare your own artisan loaves from start to finish and learn the tricks of the trade.
If you have been wanting to master the art of baking your own bread and love sourdough and croissants, this is the getaway for you. Head to this private artisan micro-bakery in the heart of Andalucia, roll up your sleeves and learn all the tricks of the trade!
Although the perfect loaf may look difficult, it is just about finding the right ingredients, learning timing, some additional skills and patience. Follow this 3 day course and you could be well on your way to discovering a new hobby and you will never have to buy your bread again.
The bakery is an authentic, family-run business, and your classes will leave no stone unturned – you will be walked through the process from start to finish for 3 days until you have mastered your techniques and perfected the craft of sourdough.
Your hosts and bakers, Lydia and Mike, will guide you through making your own sourdough loaves as well as baguettes and the process of laminating dough with butter to create specialties like croissants, pain aux raisins and pain au chocolat.
This 3 day course is a far cry from anything you’ll find on YouTube – hands-on, bespoke tuition will provide you with everything you need to know to easily bake top-quality artisan products at home with the most basic of equipment.
Classes are kept small, with a maximum of 4 people, to ensure individual attention and guidance and each guest is equipped with recipes, a notebook and apron on arrival. You’ll join a group of other like minded travellers, making this the ideal holiday for couples, friends or for those on the hunt for a singles activity holiday in Spain.
Your 4 night accommodation will be in the family owned casa, with your own private ensuite room, where you will be welcomed like one of the family yet given privacy and space whenever you need it. There are plenty of spaces to curl up with a good book and take in some sun, and a sunny terrace for one of the family’s delicious homemade international dinners with regional wine.
If you brought a car, you’ll have some time to explore and perhaps visit Granada, the Sierra Nevada National Park, or the beaches of the Costa del Sol. There are also nearby walking and cycling trails to enjoy.
