It’s Real Bread Week. This is the 10th year of this annual, international celebration of Real Bread and the people who make it.
It’s run by the Real Bread Campaign who’s three aims are to encourage and help people to:
- Buy Real Bread from local, independent bakeries
- Bake their own Real Bread at home
- Join the Real Bread Campaign
We have been a signed up supporter of the campaign since it started. We love real bread and have taught thousands of people how to make it with our workshops and demonstrations. Baking bread is fun and rewarding. It saves you money and builds your cookery and baking confidence.
To help you bake your own bread, here is a free download with a simple explanation of how bread works and recipes for a basic white bread, a failsafe 50:50 loaf, a no knead high hydration dough suitable for focaccia and ciabatta and an enriched dough perfect for buns.
