So, you’re stuck in self-isolation. You could spend the next few weeks (or months, if coronavirus gets worse) watching TV and eating takeaways, but once you get bored of that, why not try your hand at acquiring a new skill? More specifically: baking.
Bread Ahead, the bakery school and shop in Borough Market, London, has just announced free online tutorials on their Instagram page for anyone who wants to get their hands dirty kneading in the kitchen. This will be daily, on their live Instagram story at 5pm, Kuwait time (please note after BST kicks in on Sunday, it’ll be 4pm).
Today, 26th March they’re baking amaretti biscuits & ciabatta bread, and to get ahead, check out their websitefor a list of ingredients so you’re well prepared.
If you can’t make it for today’s baking session, founder and master baker Matthew Jones’s tutorials will be available on the brand’s Instagram story for the next 24 hours. And there are more sessions to come, Easter brioche (March 27), bagels & pretzels (March 28), hot cross buns (March 29) and so much more.
Bakers, ready your rolling pins and lets get busy!
