If like us, you cannot get enough of good fresh handmade bread and often thought about making your own, then please read on. In the past few years, we've seen the rise of micro bakeries that sell delicious, artisan bread. We at The Amazing Blog wanted to explore this a little bit further to discover more. There is a network of micro bakers in the UK called the Bread Angels. These are a group of like-minded people who work from their home kitchens (or in one case, a sea container in the garden) in order to produce excellent quality bread that benefits their local communities.
Many of these bakers run Bread Baking Classes too, we think that this is the perfect fun activity for your weekend or a day off. Classes are small, anywhere from 2-6 people maximum which makes them friendly and informative. The great thing is that you'll leave the course with a new found confidence as a baker along with several warm loaves to take home.
The range of classes that Bread Angels offer is really quite impressive. There are basic, Italian, flat, sourdough and speciality rye bread making. Not forgetting the buns and sweet bread courses too. Another interesting course on offer is their micro-bakery course. This teaches the basic skills required to set up and run a small baking business, including how to bake a huge range of breads.
Feeling ready to hone your baking skills? Then you too can take part in any of the Bread Angel Courses nationwide. Book a spot here and experience the mastery and knowledge that the Bread Angels bring to their classes. Course fees start at £75 and include a light meal, tea and coffee and all ingredients.
