You only need flour, water, salt and yeast to produce bread. This London bakery is extremely keen to promote that point, teaching the surprisingly simple science of bread making with skill and passion, and urging students to take ‘An Oath to the Loaf’ at the end of each session. Learn and be enthused by Bread Ahead’s tutors and you’ll almost certainly never buy additive-laced, emulsifier-enhanced, Chorleywood-process loaves ever again.The impressively furnished bakery and cookery school runs one- and three-day sourdough courses, and a large variety of other half- and full-day classes on skills such as enriched doughs, lamination, seasonal baking (and one which releases the secrets of their extremely popular filled doughnuts). The bakery itself is busy and inspiring, and the classes based around it a really well-run entry point for enthusiastic amateur bakers.
