Firehouse Bread School

One day bread making courses with a difference.

Ever wondered what the windowpane effect is, or what knocking back involves? Well this is the place to find out.

Offering a new kind of adventure - a West Cork Island, a wood burning clay oven and the chance to learn a skill for life.

Soda breads, yeasted loaves, savoury snacks and sweet treats, together we will make them all. Whether you are a beginner, experienced home baker or simply a food lover our one day courses aim to take the fear out of bread making and return bread to its rightful place as 'King of the Table'. Run by chef and baker Patrick Ryan, co-author of 'Bread Revolution' and as seen on BBC 2's Big Bread Experiment. Patrick has spent the last three years helping to establish the Thoughtful Bread Company as an award winning bakery in the south west of England. He is now returning home so that he can share his passion for great food with you. Patrick promises to accompany you beyond the limitations of bread books and take you on a hands on journey through the world of real bread. For more information visit: www.thefirehouse.ie
