‘The Loaf’: Simple Half-Day Personal Tuition from £65
For just £65* you can enjoy the wonder of creating a simple loaf of fresh homemade bread in the comfort of your own kitchen.
Michelle will come to your home and spend 4-5 hours with you, creating and working dough, shaping loaves and cobs and sharing knowledge. You will then be a certified Planet Leicester Baker. This is perfect for complete beginners or those who have tried to bake bread before but not been happy with the results!
The price includes the basic ingredients and recipe sheets.
Larger groups are priced as follows:
2 people: £95
3 people : £120
For more people add £15 per head. If you have a large group that will not fit your kitchen, a community kitchen can be hired with the cost split among the group.
*Small additional travel costs may be added depending on distance.
“Michelle has been an excellent teacher, sharing lots of hints, tips and scientific explanations. And she has been great fun!”
