We really enjoy a good cookery class. And when it involves bread - not really one of our specialities - we're very keen to learn. So an invitation to try out the New York baking workshop at Bread Ahead's Chelsea bakery school was eagerly accepted.
It's one of two locations for their bakery school - the other being in Borough Market where they first started off. Later this year, they're going one step further with their huge Wembley operation which adds a whole baking academy - aimed at people who want to look at baking as a profession. That's a little too advanced for us - but the one-day NYC baking class we attended was perfect. No baking skills are needed, as you'll be taken through everything by your teacher (and will get all the recipes after).
So - how did we get to making all the above? Here's how...
