    Signed up at last.. 

    been decidedly procrastinating this as it’s a long way and overlaps my business activity a little, but nevertheless, the cheque is in the post, and accommodation booked at the nearby B&B.

    For those coming whom I have not yet met, I look forward to meeting you, and old friends. I am a self taught baker, running a micro bakery business from home, near Olney, in the far north of Buckinghamshire.

    I look forward to seeing you all at Trefriw…who’s coming by the way? Do we have a list yet? Can it be posted as people confirm their attendance?

    Trefriw Baking 2012 

    ‘Trefriw Baking Weekend July 7th/8th 2012’ is the sixth annual gathering of bread enthusiasts. We aim to create a friendly informal atmosphere where participants can bake bread together and have creative fun. Bakers of all levels of experience are welcome from beginners to professional.
    This has been a roving event, the first was held in Bethesda in 2007. Since then it has been held in France, South Wales, Yorkshire and  last year returned to Bethesda, North Wales . Most of those who  attend are  keen amateur bakers,and the event is self driven , either working together  on a project, or watching the demonstration of a particular skill .
    The bakers often have a list of recipes they would like to make and just get on with it, sometimes a few bakers will work togther on a recipe.
    With such a diverse mix of experience the event is a great opportunity for peer to peer learning.
    The baking weekend is not run to make a profit, it is  paid for by the participents sharing the cost of holding the event. A good range of flours and basic baking ingredients are provided for everyone to use.  Bring along additional ingredients for a particular recipe or to share .
    Meals are cooked by the bakers and eaten together .
    This is very much a social gathering a chance to meet new friends and get together with old ones.

        I was hoping there was a stool.

        I was hoping that you might have opened a cider box that just needed using up. I will always do my best to help out.

      I am sorely tempted! But we are moving to Sweden the week after so I’m not sure I can pull it off. How would I register my interest?
