Room Forty’s triple-award winning mobile baking school is returning to south Liverpool for the first time since the before the pandemic.

Coming to Mossley Hill Parish Church’s Hilltop Centre on Wednesday, July 7, and again on Wednesday, July 14, the first calls will teach bread-making for beginners and the second will focus on making Italian breads.

Room Forty is a mobile afternoon tea emporium and baking school based in Warrington and founded by entrepreneur Jennifer Perry in 2016. Its team won a Silver Award at the World Bread Awards in 2017.

And the baking school itself was declared Leading Northern Provider of Baking Workshops at the Northern Enterprise Awards in 2019 and Mobile Baking Company of the Year at the Manchester & North West Prestige Awards 2020/21.

The classes start at 6pm and take approximately three hours. Students at Beginners Breads will learn how to make the Room Forty World Bread Award-winning white loaf, a soda bread, pizza and a wholemeal loaf. At the Italian class they will master Foccaccia and Pane con formaggi e noci – a cheese and walnut bread plus other treats.

Jen Perry said: “We can’t wait to be back, we have so missed teaching and our classes at the Hilltop Centre have always been great fun. Skills and laughter are guaranteed, and you’ll go home armed with recipes and your own wonderful bakes. Baking bread is easier than you think, let us show you how.

“And don’t be daunted by joining the Italian class if you have never baked bread before. We’ll teach you.”

Beginners classes cost only £55 and the Italian Breads £65. Costs include the cost of all ingredients, samples of bread and nibbles to eat and tea and coffee. Class participants also leave with recipes and the breads that they bake.
