A Seasonal Exclusive!

Who doesn’t love a hamper full of delicious treats at Christmas. This year, we’re hosting a limited number of exclusive workshops hosted by our bakery director Reece Collier. Alongside Reece you’ll learn how to make the ultimate hamper of bakes, sweet treats and savoury delights perfect for gifting.

You’ll bake hand raised pork pies using a traditional hot water crust, butter rich spiced shortbread, a seasonal selection of chutney and jam ideal for your cheese platters or your homemade pork pies. We will also delve into the world of chocolate making, learning directly from Reece’s years of experience at some of the UK’s finest kitchens. Of course no Christmas hamper is complete without a classic stollen and we’ll make sure to keep the mulled wine gently infusing in the background, ready to be bottled and beautifully packaged into your very own Bread Ahead hamper.

Workshop numbers are limited to ten people.

This baking workshop is suitable for all levels of experience, runs for approximately 6½ hours (please allow for an extra 30 minutes to assemble your hamper) and includes lunch.
