There's nothing more Christmassy than going to Sara's warm and welcoming home with some carols on in the background to stir up a boozy Christmas pudding. A really fun afternoon.

Sara quickly makes you feel totally at ease, in fact the first thing you get is a lovely cup of tea and a warm sample of what you will be making during the course of the day.
I've always wanted to get to grips with bread making as I love to cook, so I was excited to get it as my Birthday Present and the day was enjoyable and fun. There was plenty of time to chat and get to know the the other person on the course too, the day was sprinkled with cups of tea, great advise and loads of bread and buns at the end of the day. Brilliant

Delighted with my order of cheese and chilli bread, half and half bread and cinnamon swirls. The cheese and chilli bread was fantastic - very tasty indeed - and the cinnamon swirls were wolfed down by our guests, leaving one disappointed husband later! Well done, Sara!

My two sons (9 and 5) and I visited Sara at Hen's Corner for an Autumn experience over the half term for a 2 hour experience. It was truly a memorial and fun way to spend the afternoon. Hen's corner really is an oasis and Sara made us feel completely at home. In our jam packed 2 hours we managed to home-make some truly delicious bread, explore the garden to reap it's rewards. We harvested pumpkins, garlic and chillis and turned it into an Autumnal soup. The boys also loved feeding the chickens and checking out the freshly laid eggs! We'll definitely be revisiting.

Home made bread, cake and preservatives from out of a neighbours kitchen and garden. What else would anyone ask for within their street.
We have tried the bread and garden piccalilli which have been delicious. We look forward to sampling more wares soon!
