Mono Equipment, the Swansea-based machinery supplier, is holding its first-ever bakery masterclass featuring award-winner Wayne Caddy.

The event, at its South Wales HQ on 29 July, will introduce the fundamental skills and methods needed to create and bake a range of artisan breads. The techniques will be taught by hand and machine through a combination of demonstrations and practical sessions.

The day will feature Mono Equipment’s wide range of state-of-the-art equipment, such as yeast leavening machines, spiral mixers, deck ovens and retarder provers.

Caddy started his baking career in 1987 whilst studying and working in Yorkshire, and won the BIA Student Baker of the Year in 1995. More recently he was part of Team UK in the Coupe Louis Le Saffre and was the first UK baker to compete in the prestigious Masters de la Boulangerie. He also works part-time as head of baking at the world-famous School of Artisan Food, based near Nottingham, training full-time advanced bakery diploma students.

The Artisan Bakery Masterclass costs just £120, which includes a freshly baked pizza lunch with your tutor Wayne Caddy, together with a free book, The Larousse Book of Bread, by famous French Baker Eric Kayser, along with all the recipes used during the day. All participants also receive a Certificate of Attendance duly signed by Wayne Caddy.

The Artisan Bakery Masterclass starts at 9am and finishes at 4pm. As a special thank you, we promise to refund the £120 course fee if you purchase any equipment from Mono Equipment within two months of attending the course.
