UK based baking course for TFL users?
Regular readers of the TFL forum will have seen that we have amongst us an expert baker and educator in the form of Andy (ananda). It is clear from Andy's posts on this forum that he is a very accomplished baker and he has access to kitchens that are suitable for teaching bread baking, the college where he works has even just invested in some deck ovens.
Having such a resource within our community made me wonder whether we could arrange a course that teaches Artisan bread baking techniques to experienced amateurs (such as myself and most other contributors to TFL). It is likely that such a course would last at least a couple of days and, given Andy's location in the North East of England, an overnight stay would be necessary for most participants. However, one great advantage of a course like this is that participants could have a high degree of involvement in developing the course content.
I must stress that this is only an idea at present but, if there are enough interested bakers out there it may be worthwhile exploring things a little further. It is unlikely that the course could be arranged before June or July 2011.
Is anybody out there - particularly those of us who are UK based - interested?
