In this issue, chef, food writer and author of the award-winning cookery book, Mamushka, Olia Hercules shares a childhood Real Bread story that helped inspire her to write the new book, Kaukasis. Travelling through the Caucasus Mountains, she meets the women behind wood-fired microbakeries in Armenia and Georgia. The feature is illustrated by photos by Elena Heatherwick from the trip that do not appear in the book – a copy of which one reader can win.

Also up for grabs is Modernist Bread, the 2,000 page, million-word, 1,200 recipe result of over four years of independent scientific research and collaborations with leading industry professionals by Nathan Myhrvold, Franciso Migoya and the Modernist Cuisine team.

Other features include former army medic Giles Farrington talking to us about how baking bread helps him work through the ongoing challenges to his mental wellbeing he has lived with since leaving.

Readers will also have thoughts on how being shortlisted for or winning an award can be a boost to a baker, a recipe for the Pentonville Trub Thumper using spent brewer’s yeast, and a young baker who – at the age of fourteen – has a bunch of awards under his belt already.

The magazine will be posted to existing paid-up Campaign UK supporters in early October and to new supporters who join before the end of the year. The PDF version will be available for download by Campaign supporters around the world.

Sounds tasty, right? For a slice of the action, join the Real Bread Campaign today.
