It’s all about bread now it seems. London is truly in it’s baking swing after supper clubs and cake baking it seems the next most logical step is bread. After this we predict ice-cream for next summer (you heard it here first).
So what better way to introduce the home baking of bread to the capital than to have a bread festival?
The festival will be held association with the Real Bread Campaign, and organised by Yael Rose, Festival Director for the popular Cheese & Wine, Tea and Coffee and The Chocolate Festivals. At the festival you will be able to shop, learn, and also to speak and interact with some of Britain’s best bakers, including Richard Bertinet, Rose Prince, Andrew Whitley and more.
Various zones at the festival will cover different aspects of Bread making including ‘Breads of the World’ and ‘Gluten Free’ .
There will also be a series of free tutored tastings, talks and demonstrations will be available in the Real Bread Cookery Theatre, coordinated by renowned chef and culinary expert Valentina Harris. Things you can learn about include ‘Bread making: facts and myths’, ‘Bread and food matching’ and the ‘Bread Masters’, which will introduce some of the UK’s experts, who will be able to guide, advise and inspire visitors to get baking, as well as taking part in a ‘Baker’s Question Time’ which will allow visitors to get help with any baking related conundrum.
