Award-winning bread-baking teacher brings her classes to Liverpool
Room Forty’s classes in Warrington, Lymm, Grappenhall and Rainford, St Helens have proved such a hit that founder Jen Perry is now bringing them to South Liverpool in the next few weeks. Tony McDonough reports
Award-winning bakery school Room Forty is bringing its classes to Liverpool for the first time.
The business, founded by entrepreneur Jen Perry in 2016, has been holding bread-baking classes in Warrington, Lymm, Grappenhall and Rainford, St Helens, and they have been so popular Ms Perry is keen to expand them to other areas.
She will hold three-hour classes, starting at 5.15pm, at Mossley Hill Parish Church’s Hilltop Centre on March 21 and April 4 and 11.
Students on the beginners class will learn how to make the perfect white loaf, wholemeal loaf, pizza and sodabread. Those on the Italian Breads class will learn how to make focaccia, a cheese & walnut pane (pane con noci e formaggi) and rosemary ciappe (rosemary crackers).
Classes are designed to be fun, hands on and participants leave with the products of their labour.
Room Forty, which also runs an afternoon tea emporium, won a Silver Award at the World Bread Awards held in London last October for its bread-baking excellence.
Ms Perry said: “We are passionate about baking, passionate about real, additive free food and delight in passing on our baking skills.
“The feedback that we have had following our classes has been astonishing. We have fun teaching and the groups have great fun learning. More importantly we are being inundated with photo’s of the amazing loaves that our past students have sent us of their bread baking successes at home.”
Classes cost £55 for the Beginners Bread and £65 for the Italian Breads class. Costs include the cost of all ingredients, samples of bread and nibbles to eat and copious quantities of tea and coffee. Class participants also leave with recipes and the breads that they bake.
