Artisanal Bread Workshop at Boschendal

There’s nothing quite like the smell of fresh bread. Warm from the oven, dripping with butter. Yum. Even more heavenly is the opportunity to make this delicious bread yourself.

At Boschendal, we love real food. We love serving and eating sustainably produced, healthy food. What we love most is doing all of this with like-minded friends. So we’d like to invite you to join us for our next culinary workshop, an amazing bread-baking weekend.

Our artisanal bakery is run by a dedicated team using only organic, ancient grains and 100% stoneground flour from Lowerland Whole Grains; the unsung heroes behind the delicious loaves of bread served at all the eateries on our farm. Their ardent love for their craft shines through in their beautiful creations, and it is not easy to walk past the bakery here on the farm without popping in for a taste. This passionate team will share its knowledge and skills with a small group of baking fans for this special weekend.

Executive Chef Christiaan Campbell will head up the fun and insightful workshops, sharing both his passion for natural fresh produce and his witty repartee that make any culinary event with him a real pleasure.

Weekend Schedule:

Saturday: 14.00 – 17.00 – mixing, folding and shaping

Sunday: 08.00 – 12.00 – tour of the Bakery, baking

Take home what you make and the recipes to continue baking for family and friends!

Bread types covered: Sourdough, Ciabatta, Baguette and Burger Buns

Workshop price excludes accommodation, if you wish to stay on the farm we can offer a 25% discount on room rate, subject to availabilty.
