The idea behind this workshop is to ‘Gather’ our senses. To make bread and really connect with the food through touch. To create a recipe from ingredients that are not only pleasing to the eye, but that also deliver on flavour, texture and aroma. 80% of our cognitive memory is made up largely by smell. ‘Gathering’ our senses to enjoy good food, is here, at your finger tips. Get those sleeves rolled up!
