    Baker Dan Lepard shares his memories about The Handmade Loaf and other projects.
    Perhaps the most influential baker in the UK is Dan Lepard. His gentle, informative style gives even the most nervous of bakers confidence. While most people know Dan from almost a decade of writing a weekly column for The Guardian, he can also be credited with leading the way in home bakers baking artisan bread. You can pinpoint the resurgence...
  2. Get inspired with the family and win a day with Baker Emmanuel Hadjiandreou

    Get inspired with the family and win a day with Baker Emmanuel Hadjiandreou
    A bread-making book that gets the dough made and the oven turned on rather than just pretty pictures is something to behold. Emmanuel Hadjiandeou’s Making Bread Together is one of those, with twists on classics and recipes that jump out at you, so this week we’re really pleased to share his recipe for Minestrone Soup Sourdough. Making Bread Together is...
  3. Spicy Bonfire Biscuits

    Spicy Bonfire Biscuits
    I try to ignore the first signs of autumn, hoping that any September warmth will continue forever. Of course, I get it wrong every year and the weather eventually turns, then I realise that there is a lot to enjoy about the shorter days: autumn trees of course and the Honiton carnival, which is always time for hats and gloves...
  4. A simple technique that can dramatically improve your bread.

    A simple technique that can dramatically improve your bread.
    I’m a bit of a lazy baker, but I always make my bread by hand rather than a machine as I think it is important to have a feel for how the dough is developing…but…I want to fit making bread for the week ahead in at the weekend which means fitting it in amongst my list of jobs that never...
  5. Fill your kitchen with the smell of this Nordic spiced Christmas bread

    Fill your kitchen with the smell of this Nordic spiced Christmas bread
    I really enjoy trying Nordic flavours, in part I’m sure to my heritage. Many of the flavours are unlike those found in the UK, often using spices quite differently to the ways that we are used to. Breads are a good example, typically with more bite than the average loaf in the UK, with a strong tradition for spiced rye...
  6. The Perfect last minute Christmas gift for bakers

    The Perfect last minute Christmas gift for bakers
    Every year there is a kind of irony that while I’ve been busy working all hours, giving our customers advice on Christmas gifts, packing boxes full of baking equipment and sending out orders all week, I haven’t done my own shopping. The idea of finishing work and then facing the high street for my shopping fills me with festive dread...

    The most exciting thing to happen to flour this century
    Lammas Fayre Imagine eating the kind of bread that William the Conqueror ate before going into battle, or a tasting a cake shared with Boudica and her daughters, or perhaps slicing a medieval lord’s loaf before a feast. Well, now you can and we are proud to present to you the Lammas Fayre authentic heritage flours and we believe that...
  8. Back to Basics With a 2lb Loaf

    Back to Basics With a 2lb Loaf
    “Like a pot of tea or boiled eggs a homemade white tin loaf is one of life’s simple pleasures”. It can be easy to make the simplest things in life unduly complicated and I do enjoy a challenge, but sometimes there is a real pleasure in getting back to basics with a simple, humble loaf. So, this week I have...
  9. Bake Your Own Traditional Christmas Cake

    As a child, my Christmases had more of a Norwegian rather than English slant and so Christmas cakes did not really feature much and those that I did try were mainly shop-bought ones – not really the best introduction. My wife makes a Christmas cake (actually 3 each year) and the difference in a homemade one, if you don’t already...

    Vanessa’s Very Best Christmas Gift Ideas
    Making memories We all have our favourite Christmas moment. Mine is hanging my children’s first shoes on the Christmas tree. It is a moment tinged with both joy and nostalgia as I reflect how another year has gone by so quickly and I realise that Christmas is special because we make time to be together. From the book - Making...
