Bread Chat

It’s Crust and Crumb Bread Chat

4 November 8pm on Zoom

Every other month, we hold a Bread Chat online via Zoom. This is your chance to ask questions of a group of knowledgeable bread bakers. We have a different theme for each chat.

In July, we hosted our first online Bread Chat on Zoom. We had a lively discussion on Yeast. In September we answered questions on sourdough starter. This time it is crust and crumb.

We are a group of experienced bakers and we’ve decided to a regular, lively discussion online.  Bread Chat will take place over Zoom so we can see each other in real time. The discussion is open to everyone not just women!

These days you might find your bread knowledge in any number of online groups. If you are a beginner bread maker you’ll be bamboozled by all the advice, much of which seems to contradict. If you are experienced, you might be ready to change the way you’re doing things. We’ll bring our decades of knowledge to the debate. We definitely won’t all have the same opinions but you will get measured answers that will work for you! We’re aiming for a light hearted chat that we are sure will inspire you!

There’s a lot of hype and misinformation about breadmaking. We want to make it easier for people to make bread successfully with confidence.

We welcome people from all over the world.
