The first day of March saw the team in St Margaret's in Chorlton working with the DEP (Development Education Project) to deliver the first in a series of five breadmaking workshops for local people. In our first session, our resident breadmaking expert Rob instructed the class on the art of baking a basic loaf, using a variety of yeasts and flours.
Dough was soon mixed and kneaded then left under a tea towel to double in size while we retired to the classroom to find out some more about bread. A lively discussion ensued and we pondered the history of bread, grain and gluten, its impact on health, modern and artisan baking techniques, cost and milling processes, and so much more.
