A Bakers’ Resource

This is a site about how I bake.

My aim, over a period of time, is to post everything I have learned since I started baking bread as a home baker in 1992, the experience gained running the Microbakery I set up in 2007, and the present period since 2012 where I have been occupied mainly with writing and consultancy and training.

01.03.2023The Russian Invasion of Ukraine is now into its’ second year. A lot of bakers are baking to raise funds to aid the Ukrainian people. My mini-contribution is to rework a small group of Ukrainian bread formulas for people to use in this effort. You can find them here: Ukrainian Bread

RETIREMENT: I’ve retired a few times before but at the start of March 2021, at the age of 74, I decided to retire more comprehensively i.e no more bread for sale and no more training courses. I shall continue to add to this site and you can continue to ask for advice and information.

There’s already a huge amount of information on the site. To date (March 2023) you can access:

♦ Click BAKING RESOURCES to access my three bread books (Sourdough, Microbakin’ and Bara Blas) in pdf form, and, Breadsheet One, my bread formula spreadsheet calculator

♦ Click POSTS to browse coming on 700 bread related posts compiled since 2008

♦ Click BREAD FORMULAS for over 30 bread recipes so far with dozens more ready to be formatted for publishing

♦ Click COURSES for information of Sourdough and Microbakery courses. (this section is now just for information.)

♦ Click FEATURES for microbakery and miscellaneous (but fascinating) articles

♦ Click ABOUT for information about Bethesdabakers

Contact details – always happy to deal with questions or queries
