Knead a Loaf Workshop with Truefood Academy.


NOTS in conjunction with Truefood Academy are hosting a “Knead a Loaf” Workshop. This workshop will will take place over two days, be a hands on class where all materials and a delicious lunch will be provided for trainees. Trainees can also take home their baked goods.  All the produce will be organic, locally sourced or home grown i.e slow breads, traditional sour-dough and overnight sponge yeast methods.

This practical workshop will exam the effects of modern bread production and processing methods, and the biochemical consequence of such processing on the body.
