Held at Tim Kinnaird's Macarons & More Cookery School on the Hellesdon Hall Industrial Estate, the Breads and Spreads class will run on March 18 between 9am and 2pm.

Kate will be teaching the class to make a bloomer or cottage loaf, a spelt wreath and a range of shaped rolls as well as how to whip up spreads such as chorizo jam and lemon curd.

For the price of £150, the course also includes refreshments on arrival, a recipe booklet and a delicious lunch where attendees will have the opportunity to chat with Kate about her baking adventures.

The mum-of-two, who wowed Paul and Mary with her bread-making skills, said: 'The highlight of my Bake Off experience was my Cornmaiden loaf which both Paul and Mary were really impressed with.

'I've been baking my own bread since I was a child and have a wide range of practical and creative skills that I'm keen to share, including how to make your own sourdough starter and how to use it.

As well as this course, Kate will be hosting various other classes at the Richard Hughes Cookery School at The Assembly House in Norwich. These will include a Mother's Day Course on Friday, March 24 where children can learn to make tasty treats for their mum.
