South African artist, NiÃ«l Jonker invites you to join his fun yet thorough two day workshop which emphasizes the benefits of slow fermentation, whole grain ingredients, and process consciousness.
An advanced understanding of bread-making core principles are covered while apprenticing in a fully functional artisan bakehouse. Step by step explanations of all one needs to know is learnt with a glass of wine in hand, and novices and experienced bakers are catered for equally.

Every last Thursday and Friday of the month, unless otherwise specified. Group bookings with alternative dates are gladly considered.
The cost is R2,200 per person.
The first day begins at 09:30 and includes a light pizza lunch (bring along your secret ingredient to win the Killer Pizza Contest!).
Something juicy gets slow roasted as the oven warms up, and you can sit down and feast at the stoep’s long table while the breads rise. Ideas and ingredients from foodies are most welcome. This is the main bake day and early risers may join from 06:00 with the lighting of the fire and mixing of the first batches of dough from 08:00. The day ends with the breads being sold on the local Stanford Sunset Market from 18:00 to 20:00, where music and wine tasting, friendly faces (and more food!) bring an end to the rewarding day. The Saturday morning Plaasmark in B’bos is a gem also worth staying for, as are the many remote and unpopulated beaches and nature trails that the unspoiled coastline has to offer.
