Something extraordinary is happening in British baking. Up and down the country people are coming together to bake bread. They’ve got more than a gut feeling that factory bread doesn’t do you much good. They know that the only way to be sure of what goes into your food is to make it yourself. And they often start with bread – naturally. Though the dominant, over-centralised, additive-dependent way of baking is clearly unsustainable, it’s still capable of turning out cheap pap, so opening a bakery to do things differently needs courage as well as knowledge. But when you do it with some friends and with the support of the community, there’s every chance of long-term success. Baking for Community, first run three years ago, has played a modest part in launching what is rapidly turning into a movement: community-supported baking (CSB), modelled on, though even more varied than, community-supported agriculture. As practical baking alternates with business sessions, you’ll learn from the leading organic artisan baker and campaigner, Andrew Whitley, whose long experience of starting and running a small village bakery is revealed in a wealth of advice and encouragement to everyone seeking to bring real bread to their neighbourhood. There are now several CSB projects in the UK that can act as case studies, including one, Breadshare Bakery, just down the road at Whitmuir Farm. The course will visit Breadshare to glimpse how bread is changing, for good and all.
“Provided a real insight into both the technical skills and the science underpinning the course content. Andrew also personally shares his own evident love and deep understanding of all aspects of breadmaking and the meaning of bread which is both generous and inspiring.”
“This really helped me to realise – or actually just crystallise what I already knew – that this is what I want to do: I can’t imagine not working in a bakery somehow.”
