I have pondered long and hard about whether to write this review. I participated in the French bread course earlier this year. The day was interesting and the group I was with enjoyed our day but there were a couple of things which made the day 'not quite perfect.' Firstly, the cost. The day was £145. Although the day was...

I booked a somewhat different festive team building day for myself and 11 colleagues at Hartingtons of Bakewell. Julie and Chris were extremely accommodating in tailoring a course specifically for us on Bread Making. The timing of the day was perfect,ensuring time for practical work but also some 'watch and ask question' sessions. There was also a couple of team... More
