The bread is ris­ing (north­wards)!

BREAD-BAK­ING WITH PLAT­TE­LAND

go! Platteland - - BREAD-BAKING WITH PLATTELAND -

Af­ter suc­cess­ful bread-bak­ing work­shops in the Cape over the past two years, we lis­tened to our read­ers and of­fered two cour­ses in Hart­beespoort and one in Bloemfontein.

The time was ripe: read­ers have long wanted to know when Plat­te­land would be head­ing north with our pop­u­lar bread-bak­ing work­shops. For­tu­nately, two qual­i­fied peo­ple were ready to as­sist us in this ven­ture: An­nelien Pien­aar of the guest farm Bos-en-Berg in Hart­beespoort and Mar­celle Botha of Demo-Den Cook­ery School in Bloemfontein, both old hands when it comes to cook­ery, bread-bak­ing and pre­sent­ing cour­ses.

Our wildest ex­pec­ta­tions were ex­ceeded. At Hart­beespoort the one planned work­shop spon­ta­neously be­came two, and in Bloemfontein Mar­celle’s kitchen was burst­ing at the seams as peo­ple came from all over – as far afield as Herolds Bay, Post­mas­burg and Hartswa­ter – for this de­light­ful affair. And it was great to see how read­ers ar­rived in teams at all three cour­ses: there were hus­bands-and-wives, moth­ers-and-daugh­ters, fa­thers-and-sons, moth­er­sand-sons, in all man­ner of com­bi­na­tions; groups of friends (read: the in­fa­mous Bloemfontein gang); and even a fam­ily of four: mom, dad, univer­sity-aged son and school-go­ing daugh­ter. And they baked for all they were worth.

We’ll do it again in 2017. Keep an eye on the mag­a­zine and our Face­book page for de­tails.
