Baking Classes at Terroir Tapas in Southbourne, 81 Southbourne Grove, Bournemouth, Dorset, BH6 3QX


Our evening baking classes take place at Terroir Tapas – an eco-aware global tapas bar in the centre of Southbourne. We do three types of classes on Tuesdays from 7-10 pm with up to ten participants: Sourdough, Norwegian Baking and Flatbreads. At all classes you will be offered delicious homemade food and tasting speciality sourdough breads.

At the Sourdough Baking Class you will experience all the stages of sourdough bread baking from scratch using organic stoneground flour including ancient wheats. You will take home a baked sourdough loaf, a dough in a proofing basket to bake the next day and a helping of our own sourdough starter for you to keep baking amazing sourdough bread. Demonstrations will be done on how to score the bread and bake crusty hearth loaves in Terroir Tapas’s beautiful Gozney wood burning oven. You will also be shown how to bake sourdough in your own oven at home. You will leave with a solid foundation on how to care for your sourdough starter and enthusiasm for continuing baking sourdough bread at home. The price includes a proofing basket and a jar of our sourdough starter.

At the Norwegian Baking Class you will learn how to bake luscious cinnamon buns, including a vegan option, from mixing the dough, kneading and shaping and baking them in a wood burning oven. You will also be making traditional ‘lomper’ wraps with potatoes and sweet potatoes and the famous soft heart-shaped Norwegian waffles. You will take home all your bakes.

At the Flatbread Class you will be making wonderful Norwegian wraps with sweet potatoes, naan breads and a sweet Norwegian flatbread called ‘svele’. You will take home all your bakes.
