Williton-based equipment company Brook Food has teamed up with award-winning master baker Mark Bennett, owner of Patisserie Mark Bennett, to launch a three-day intensive bakery course aimed at those looking to start a commercial bakery business.

The hands-on residential programme will see participants learn the skills and techniques to make products seen in artisan bakeries up and down the country.

Participants will gain expertise and learn first-hand the behind the scenes essentials to produce commercial bakery products from successful and current master baker Bennett, winner of British Baker’s Baker of the Year accolade at the Baking Industry Awards in 2014.

The course covers a huge number of products, which will be demonstrated through hands-on presentations. The course will be held in a commercial test bakery, using equipment found in modern bakeries.

During the three days there will be sessions dedicated to bread making, lamination and patisserie, with many methods and recipes being covered.

Included in the price are two nights’ bed and breakfast accommodation, lunches and two evening meals.
