We are delighted to be collaborating with Alexandra from the Crows Rest Bakehouse in Wakefield, a microbakery making and selling bread without additives or improvers, with organic flours and traditional methods.
Our Christmas workshop – 3 fantastic festive breads using a range of skills, techniques and ingredients.

  • Stollen – homemade tastes best! & if like me you have relatives who don’t like marzipan, you can do one with and one without.
  • Christmas focaccia – a sweet focaccia with hardly any work involved that you can mix in the evening and bring together in 5 minutes in the morning, for an unusual breakfast treat
  • Christmas Soda bread – walnuts and stilton come together in this quick loaf perfect for keeping the relatives happy with a taste of warm bread.

  • Gluten Free loaf – a delicious and fluffy loaf of bread that will please anyone that tries it, regardless of them being on a GF diet or not.
