Latest News 17.07.15: Today’s the day!!!
Gill & Jay Butters together with Joe (Firebeard) Rowntree are hosting this year’s Bethesdabakin’ at Garmon View, Gill & Jay’s spacious house in the beautiful Conwy Valley in North Wales over the weekend of 18/19 July.
This will be the ninth annual Bethesdabakin’. The idea is very simple; people who want to share ideas and bake bread with other bakers get together at a different venue each year. Whoever is hosting organises equipment, flour and other ingredients, and meals are prepared and shared by the participants. If you are unfamiliar with the events, click on the link – Bethesdabakin’ Baking Weekends – on the sidebar of this page and look through the blogs of previous years. Some are less complete than others but they will give you some idea of what to expect.
The events are not owned by anyone, there are no rules but are based on a few simple principles: everyone who comes is a participant (no observers), everyone has something to offer (even if that’s only inexperience and a desire to learn), no stars (people help each other), shared catering and costs. Costs are likely to be in the region of £70, less for non-baking partners. Actual costs will be announced in advance of the event.
The weekend is open to anyone but, for practical reasons, numbers are limited and a few places are being reserved for local participants. Partners/children welcome within reason.
