Bread Angels by Virtuous Bread

Location 15 locations across the UK Contact 020 7400 3900 [email protected] Bread Angels is the UK’s largest network of micro bakeries. Not only are many of the tutors award-winning bakers, they are also award-winning teachers. When you take a class from a Bread Angel, you take part in small, cosy classes of around 2-6 people that are often taught in the home bakery of the tutor. Many students describe Bread Angels’ classes as informative and inspiring. They are the third highest ranked class in London on Trip Advisor, and the reviews speak for themselves. Bread Angels are keen to get to know their students and have a genuine interest in what they want to learn. The classes are absolutely hands-on so expect to get sticky and floury as you learn to knead properly and shape expertly, turning out gorgeous loaves in the process. With such small classes, you will receive the complete attention of the tutor who has time and concern for everyone’s learning experience. There are breaks for coffee/tea and a homemade lunch, during which students can ask questions, get to know each other, and learn a great deal about the process, ingredients and importance of real bread.
