Sara hosts a brilliant bread making day in her lovely home in Brentford. I think we made five different breads in total of all different kinds. And I have never been able to make a sourdough but the end of the day it was a piece of cake (well, bread, but you know what I mean). A really lovely day where you learn a huge amount but have a great time. Could not have been better.

Hen corner is an urban retreat. Sara is an excellent host and teacher - it’s a fun and relaxing day to do something different, learn new skills, and go home with some delicious bread and marmalades that you can replicate at home if you want to. Such a lovely environment. Sara creates a homely vibe which makes you feel that you are spending a day with old friends and not just doing a cookery class.

The gorgeous garden, hens, bees and cocoa the cat add something special to the experience. Thank you Sara for a fantastic day!

Absolutely wonderful "Toast & Marmalade" workshop at Hen Corner, making traditional Seville Orange Marmalade, a Lemon, Ginger & Honey Marmalade, and a loaf of bread. Sara was an excellent teacher - and aside from the marmalade making, she taught us a whole different way of mixing and kneading dough that really produced great bread. Mine was a mix of 40% seeded white/60% wholemeal flour, using normal Dove yeast, so easily replicated. It tasted great both as sandwiches and toast.

So far I've dug into the Lemon marmalade (designed by Sara for a Honey Show competition), which is delicious and definitely worth repeating. The ginger in syrup ingredient adds a little kick that knocks it out of the flu 'lemon & honey' taste profile and into something really lovely.

We also got to check out their mini urban smallholding backyard, complete with hens and bee hives as well as the kitchen garden. It's a little slice of 'Good Life' paradise in the centre of London.

It was an excellent day - learnt lots, in a lovely environment, delicious lunch and afternoon tea, it was a great deal of fun and very sociable with four other lovely ladies. I would definitely recommend the Hen Corner courses (there's a Cider course in September), and am actually going back next month to do the "Cheese in a Day" course to learn to make Mozzarella, Feta and Camembert. Looking forward to it!

Perfect way to spend a day in chilly January, spending time in Sara's home soaking up her expertise and marmalade and bread-making. I learnt so much and I was delighted by the content and attention to detail regarding recipes and ingredients. I had high hopes for the day and it definitely exceeded my expectations.

We had a team training day here and we had a lovely time. The smell of fresh baked cinnamon rolls hits you as soon as you are welcomed into Sara's family home, we all had a chance to hold the chickens and were introduced to the bees though they were busy trying to keep warm ! Sara is very knowledgeable about the chickens, bees and how being a bit more conscious about the food we eat and where it comes from can be done and you don't have to live in a rural location, that all came across during the course. We were also fed very well, we had a gorgeous lunch and the breads were just amazing...which only added to the enjoyment of the day.
