Join the warm and welcoming Bakehouse cookery school for a bread- and gin-making masterclass.
A former nurse, Bronagh Duffin founded this small cookery school just outside the village of Bellaghy two years ago.
Since then, the Bakehouse has gone from strength to strength, now offering a unique class where you bake bread while infusing a jar of gin exactly to your tastes.
On arrival, Bronagh will have a range of treats and refreshments ready for you to enjoy.
Then you'll be brought through the basics of bread-making, from stirring and kneading to choosing what goes into your loaf to make it truly one-of-a-kind.
Bronagh's a dab hand at different types of bread, and can show you how to make soda bread, cheese and scallion loaf, or delicious Guinness loaf – whatever you fancy.
As your dough rises in the oven, Bronagh will lead you on a journey of the surrounding area to forage for seasonal berries, sloes, and other botanicals to make your gin come to life – just remember to wrap up well!
Back in the warmth of the Bakehouse, you'll be shown how to feed gin and sugar to your little harvest in sterilised glass jars for a taste that's perfectly suited to your palate.
Then as your pickings start to infuse, there's just enough time to take your freshly baked loaf out of the oven.
Tuck into your warm loaf spread with local butter and a delicious bowl of homemade soup while Bronagh makes you feel like a member of the family.
With with your bread and gin to take home, you'll have not one but two great-tasting mementos of your time at the Bakehouse.
