Experience & Learn
We offer different courses: for beginners, advanced, adults and children. We also develop tailor-made programs and provide team building activities.
Our bread courses
We discuss bread in a more fundamental and scientific way. Insights in the underlying principles are explored to bring a greater understanding to the process. We tap into the corresponding artisanal techniques, the mixing, the fermentation and shaping of the dough. Different types of flour and their baking properties are discussed.
The circular bakery: reuse of old bread
We use old bread as an ingredient to make better bread and prevent further food waste. We demonstrate how to use old bread during the workshops. Read also ( Dutch) : “Afval is voor mij een term voor gebrek aan creativiteit“. Our method of making bread has been selected as one of the best practice examples by the Dutch Circular Platform! Read more about what we do.
Grains & Fermentation
We regularly discuss how ancient grains relate to modern wheat and what effect fermentation has on food and bread. What makes fermented food so different compared to cooked food?
Ovens & water
We discuss the role of water, the magical molecule that astronomers often search for, why actually? We discuss the importance of a “good” oven and how the crust is formed and try to explain why baking bread is not a piece of cake….
The narrative of bread and it’s underlying science allows us to connect the dots, revive our senses and bridge between our past (artisan) and future (modern science).
A snack or vegetarian / vegan food is included in some of our events. Sometimes we make a delicious pizza during our workshops, using our dough.
Special workshops & events
Making bread is our departure point. We do more. We collaborate with partners and organize special workshops, pop-up events and educational programs. These include projects about food pairing, food & culture, health and sustainability.
Wonders of learning & Educational journey
Read more in this interview about our educational journey and in this dutch article (University of Amsterdam) how science and education bloom in our open bakery.
In our circular bakery we offer educational programs for children, allowing them to experience and learn more about the meaning of sustainability.
Participants in our workshops & events regularly come from other countries and therefor the workshop is often conducted in English.
