All about Bread and the Baker

The bread


The bread should be made with quality ingredients and prepared carefully to achieve the best flavour and nutrition. 

The dough should be mixed carefully and thoroughly then hand moulded and proved at low temperature before being baked. 

The types of bread could be many, and you can learn to make them all:

Soft or crusty white bread

- bread made from fresh dough made with yeast and improver

Special bread

- like wholemeal, rye, spelt, grain or bread that contains for example fruit, walnuts or olives


- made from fermented dough without the use of yeast or improvers and this could include grain fed or rye fed sourdough

Sweet bread

- like brioche, rich with fresh egg and butter, malt, molasses, honey and vanilla sugar.
