Tailored Services

Planet Leicester Bakers offers a number of exciting tailored bread services for private individuals, organisations and businesses to enjoy. As a business with social purpose, these services support the community work of Planet Leicester Bakers.

Ranging from learning to hand make bread in your home, to offering team activities for staff and volunteers, Planet Leicester Bakers will work with you to develop bespoke activities that meet your needs.

More information is added to this page as these services and activities develop. Please contact Michelle to start a conversation about bread and what it can do for you, your family, friends, clients and colleagues!

‘The Loaf’:  Starter 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 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.
