This book is for anyone who has watched someone else choosing between industrial loaves by squeezing them the same way that they test loo rolls, and thought: ‘I wish there was a way that I could help to bring Real Bread back into my local community.’
Whether baking Real Bread once a month at home for a local producers’ market, joining together with neighbours to set up a Community Supported Bakery, or as a traditional high street baker, this is the practical introductory handbook to guide you on the way.
Uniquely this book contains not only basic recipes but also information on business models, relevant legislation, money matters, equipment, ingredients, techniques, marketing, courses, equipment and ingredient suppliers, and much more to give the start-up baker the confidence and knowledge to get going, and a boost to existing bakers.
In amongst the wholesome slices of advice, and beautiful photographs, are tasty crumbs from people who know how to knead, including master bakers Paul Barker, Troels Bendix, Aidan Chapman, Paul Merry, and Andrew Whitley; as well as UK Community Supported Bakery pioneer, Dan McTiernan of The Handmade Bakery.
