Two of Bread in Fife’s highly popular courses will be run in conjunction with Slow Food Fife over the next few weeks.

The sessions, run by Freuchie-based Colin Lindsay, will be concentrating on oat cuisine on September 19, and Mediterranean bread on October 25.

They will be held at the Stables workshop on Falkland Estate, with participants offered true “aprons on-hands on” baking with a delicious outcome.

Colin told “Food from Fife” said that his courses offer plenty of opportunities to sample what’s being baked as the day goes on.

“Home bakers need no special equipment – just a normal domestic oven and good flour.

“The baking classes provide many practical tips and just seeing how something is done is often easier than figuring out a written description.

“Most of all, at the end of baking classes participants have the confidence to make their own bread at home,”he said.

The leader of Slow Food Fife, Viv Collie, who is also one of the Fife Food Network’s directors, said that people find a lot of pleasure in making their own bread with just the basic healthy ingredients.

“We have already had one very successful class with Colin. It’s informal and fun.

“Colin is really dedicated to breadmaking, and his classes are growing in popularity,” she said.
