Over time, and whilst serving our breads daily to customers in our cafe, we haveve developed a range of spreads and condiments that we feel do justice to our sourdough. Join us for an evening workshop to learn from our chefs how to make jam, butter and pickles. THE JAM Raspberry jam is a real house favourite, and a good basic jam to master. The principles behind this jam can be applied to many other fruits. We will be showing how to jazz it up by adding herbs for flavour. THE PICKLE The cheese and pickle sarnie is a staple for our lunches. Here we explain the how and why for pickling vegetables, in this case cucumbers, to make the ultimate pickle.
