Last Friday, Bruce Gillingham Pollard's Tracey Pollard and Millie Wilson, along with five of our clients, descended on Borough Market's Bread Ahead Bakery, on a mission to learn the secrets to making Bread Ahead's legendary doughnuts.

The course welcomes bakers of all abilities, and is designed to take students through the complete experience of making doughnuts from start to finish. As the dough needs 24 hours to rise, the course is arranged retrospectively; first focusing on how to shape and fry the doughnuts, as well as how to create the delicious jam, salted caramel and vanilla custard fillings; mixing and kneading the dough is then covered in the latter half of the class.

With society's growing interest in artisan food, and eagerness to learn new skills, a cookery class at Bread Ahead's Bakery in Borough market is the perfect way to spend a Friday afternoon. Every minute of the class was as fun as it was informative, and our team left not only with plenty of new skills, but also each took home a box of freshly made doughnuts, raw dough to make more at home, and a bag of home-made honeycomb...needless to say the evidence didn't last long!
