Here's what I made on a French bread baking day that I went on today at the loaf, Crich, Derbyshire. Well worth the money, I bought it for hubby's birthday last November & bought it for me to accompany him. We learnt lots of  new things. The baguettes are to die for!😊😊

A very simple and easy, however, a dangerously yummy blueberry and chocolate chip muffin:

That does look heaven! Well done.

Thanks gobs, well worth saving up for a course. They do a basic bread & a sour dough one too. I'm sure there are others but a couple of the chaps with us had already done those, bought as gifts.
I would be interested in the basic bread one even though I bake bread as Andrews style of tuition was great & I feel I would come away with a lot more knowledge & understanding. They're on face book too & twitter

Gobs, please do tell - is there a secret to those fantastic French sticks?  They look wonderfully crispy and delicious.

They look fab Snowy  :D

They do market stalls!  They come to ours and have loads of choice.  I bought my first loaf from them from their Matlock shop

Jaydig they were mine not gobs, from a French bread baking course we went on last Sunday. The secret was in the 'poolish' we included, a prefermented dough made the day before, that & how it was folded not kneaded & very importantly how the slash was made on the tops prior to going in the oven...not before

Sorry Snowdrops,

I didn't mean to credit your lovely bakes to someone else, just put it down to my age!  On a good day I do, in fact, know my own name.

Thanks for the information, though.  I've tried to make baguettes before, but they've never come out looking as good as yours.

Thank you Snowy, I've never heard about them.
