‘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.
