Sunday 2nd June 2019, 10am to 2pm – Mindful Baking Workshop

Take a pause and learn how breadmaking can fit into busy schedules as a mindful part of a daily routine.

In a city where everybody is always rushing around, taking a moment to pause is often difficult. Making bread is commonly considered a long, arduous task, reserved for those with lots of time on their hands – but, in fact, though breadmaking can be slow, it is perfectly possible to fit it into a busy schedule as a mindful part of a daily routine.

Come and hang out at our sourdough bakery and social enterprise in Haggerston on a Sunday morning for some mindful baking with The Bread Companion, a.k.a. Julia Georgallis (read more about Julia below!). Learn all the breadmaking basics, find out about different types of natural levains and yeasts that make delicious breads, plus make your own sourdough loaf, rye loaf and Better Health’s famous pizza-al-taglio.

Materials, ingredients, recipes and lunch all included. Take home all you make in the session along with a free Better Health Bakery apron!

12 places available per class.

£78 per class, 10am – 2pm at Better Health Bakery (13 Stean Street, E8 4ED) – Just 2 minutes’ walk away from Haggerston Overground station.

The Bread Companion

Julia is part of the Better Health alumni, having started her journey as a volunteer back in 2014 and working as a part-time baker up until 2018. Julia has been running nomadic bakery, The Bread Companion, since 2014. Inspired by communal bread ovens of the past, the bakery uses a wood fired oven to bake bread, run supper clubs and events, as well as to teach people how to make their own homemade loaves from scratch. TBC has run a great many workshops all over the place, from Stroud to Sweden, from council estates to rural desert communities.
