I've been busy learning!! 👩‍🎓👩‍🎓

A few days ago I joined a chocolate course with Mike at Noble and Stace Chocolatiers I had a wonderful time, learnt lots of things and ate the most delicious food!! All cooked by our hosts at The Artisan Bakehouse!! Once they are open again for lunches I highly recommend a visit!!

Thank you so much for glorious food, company and knowledge 🍫
Now to apply this to my cake decorating!!

A fantastic 2 days at The Artisan Bakehouse with Les, Louise, Leigh and some budding chocolatiers!

Very time consuming but very very tasty.
My gas oven is a bit hot so will use a lower shelf next time.
I would really like to make them so I can bake them for breakfast. Can I get them to the stage where they are shaped and let them have their final rise overnight in the fridge?
Celebrating the completion of a BIG project. 11 brilliant bread-making masterclasses DONE ✅🍾🥂🥳🥳

We’ve been on quite a journey with Lou & Les The Artisan Bakehouse and we hope these online classes are a huge success for them. Hopefully we ‘rose’ to the occasion 😉🤣🤣🤣

Love a full log basket to welcome our weekend cottage guests.
We think it's kind of comforting to arrive at a cosy country cottage knowing you are all set to hunker down and relax for the weekend

Happy Pancake Day!

🥞 Are you a thin or a thick lover?

🥞Thick & fluffy all the way here!!
🥞 For these we used 200g self-raising flour, 1 ½ tsp baking powder, 1 tbsp caster sugar, 3 large eggs, 25g melted butter, plus extra for cooking, 200ml milk . (Our daughter likes to add a dash of vanilla too!)
🥞Mixing the wet and dry ingredients in separate bowls helps avoid overmixing after you’ve combined them. Overmixing leads to tough, heavy pancakes which only our chickens like!
🥞 Keep a few lumps in your batter to minimize gluten formation, mix the wet ingredients into the dry just until the batter is evenly moistened but there should still be lumps.
🥞 Enjoy !

As if you ever need an excuse to enjoy chocolate, it's National chocolate soufflé day today.....well hello Monday !

🤎 The word soufflé is the past participle of the French verb souffler, which means “to blow up” or more loosely “puff up” which describes a souffle perfectly.  

🤎 A soufflé is a lightly baked cake made with egg yolks and beaten egg whites that are combined with other ingredients to make the dish either a savory main dish or a sweet dessert.

🤎 But today is all about the chocolate one!!
We like to think of it as a rather lighter posher brownie and let's be honest who doesn't love a brownie!

🤎 The trick is to not over bake it so you get the heavenly molten chocolate oozing out.

🤎 Enjoy !! 😉

Another lovely group of people today making wholegrain breads with @emsbread on our Glorious Grains class
🍞 Walnut 🍞 Multigrain
🍞 Raisin Rye🍞 Wholemeal Soda

Working with wholegrain is considered a little more tricky as you need to maintain a good hydration to ensure you don't end up with a really dense loaf.
Wholegrains have great nutritional benefits because you are getting ........well, all of the grain! Stoneground wholemeal flour is best as nothing is lost in the milling process.
One of the highlights of this class is a visit from our farmer neighbour, Simon. He grows wheat locally and pops in to talk about this, and we mill some of his grain to make the Soda bread too!

🍞 NEXT Glorious Grains Class 10th May 🍞

While the rain beats down and the wind howls as Storm Eunice approaches, its comforting sitting here planning summer weddings! Knowing that one day soon the sky will be blue again, the garden verdant & abundant with flowers and people will be laughing and celebrating in the warm sun !

We are often asked why the bread we teach has such a great taste. Of course the type & quality of the flour is a major factor but we think being handmade with love will always be the secret!
On Valentines Day & Always ❤

So lovely to see sunshine streaming into the Milkhouse cottage to welcome our weekend guests today. There is still a nip in the air but that sun actually felt warm today with a promise that spring is coming. We still loaded up the log basket because who doesn't like a log fire at any time of year ! 🔥🔥🔥

Let's talk Baguettes!!

🇲🇫 We all know along with wine & cheese and of course a beret.....well it's practically synonymous with France!!
🥖 Baguette means stick, wand or baton
🇫🇷 it's actually an Austrian invention but the French would probably argue not! (over a glass of wine)
🥖 Baguettes are baked using steam to get that lovely light fluffy inside & crispy crust
🇫🇷 We use traditional french T55 flour to give that authentic taste
🥖 We lived in France for 8 years and learned to bake by traditional artisan methods
🇲🇫 In 1993 the French passed a law which states how traditional Baguettes should be made - just flour, yeast, salt, water and strictly made at the place they are sold - love this!
🥖 If you buy a Baguette and it's not rock hard the next day - Trust us, this is not a real Baguette!
🇲🇫 We teach the mighty Baguette on our 40 minute online class or on our Introduction to bread making class if you want to learn more & enjoy real bread ! 🥖🥖🥖

💛 East head beach, just a short drive from us is a stunning natural coastline of miles of sandy beach, backed by sand dunes and salt marshes which is protected by the National Trust.
💛 A beautiful place to walk, spot wildlife, relax and soak up the sea air at any time of year

💛Just one of the great days out you can enjoy while staying with us.

Meet Maneesh - It's a Lebanese flat bread, that's quite simply delicious!
It's crispy on the outside and soft and light on the inside but its the zaatar topping that takes this to another level and makes it irresistibly moreish!
We teach this somewhat unknown beauty on our Mediterranean breads class along with fougasse, pitta & pizza.
On the class we blend our own zaatar using a blend of sesame seeds, sumac, oregano & marjoram, thyme, salt & oil. It has a pleasing earthy, herby, tangy, salty yum yum yum taste that always leaves you wanting more!

It's great on its own but fabulous as part of a mezze with oils & dips .......now that's got us dreaming of long warm summer nights !

If you can't wait for summer our next Mediterranean breads class is 9th April & you could perhaps combine making this with a cheeky weekend stay 😉 #dreamy
