(defn: “The sharing of bread knowledge, for the benefit of all.”)

Making your own bread is:
satisfying - productive - therapeutic - mindful - healthy - tasty

If you would like to learn how and to discover its wonders, book one of my courses, the options are set out below. My courses are designed to be practical and informative and equip the home baker with the knowledge needed to make their own bread.

My aims for you on a course are to learn, practise, eat and enjoy. Please bear in mind that baking is a hands on activity that tends to involve a lot of standing. If you have any reason to think this may present you with problems, please contact me to discuss. Almost any obstacle to inclusion can be overcome.

I can come to you! Collect up to three friends, book an evening, half day or full day with me and I will teach you a variety of breads in your own home using your oven, leaving you with all the information you need to start making bread at home. Grab a bottle or two and make it a social occasion. Costs start at £250 for approx 3.5 hours. If you are a long way from Leicestershire, we'll have to factor that in!


"I used to coach teachers to improve their teaching. After you left we were unanimous in our admiration for your timing, pace, organisation, resourcing and balancing of two different breads and four different styles at the same time with strangers in an unfamiliar kitchen. So impressive. " - Denise Hills, Leicester
