This one day baking course allows you to focus on the basics of working with and fermenting grains, nuts and seeds for better gut health. The group size is kept very small to ensure you get the attention you deserve in making this day one of the most valuable activities you will ever do for your overall health and well being.
Karen’s home in Laughton, East Sussex is delightful and is where The Happy Tummy Co. Cookery School sources its fruits, vegetables and medicinal herbs. Baking bread in this space with Karen is very special and she will make sure to impart all her knowledge on you throughout the day to make baking a huge pleasure in your life going forward.
Below is an example of how a Fundamentals day runs. Depending on the group we will do more or in some cases less if the group wants to spend more time on a particular recipe.
You will arrive at Karen's home in Laughton for 10am sharp. Or you will arrive at Lewes train station where Karen will pick you up.
