All of those posts about Banana Bread left you feeling inadequate after lockdown? National Baking Week aims to encourage people of all abilities to bake at home, bringing out the positives of being more creative, proud of your accomplishments, and making others happy too. From complete beginners to those learning the ropes at university, or for the more experienced who want to expand their skills, the award-winning bakery Ruth’s Little Kitchen is offering online classes including an ‘Introduction to Baking’.
From the dreaded lockdown banana cake to the delicious shortbread with chocolate drizzle and traditional white bread loath, Ruth will run you through her tried and tested baking recipes. The ‘Introduction to Baking’ classes includes 12 step-by-step videos in total, costing just £85, and can be enjoyed in your own time.
The online courses are also suitable for students aged 14 and above to achieve the skills section of their Duke of Edinburgh’s Award, including bronze, silver, and gold. Within these online classes, Ruth can also cover hygiene and safety, nutrition, food science, and lots of useful tips (she even encourages the washing up!).
