This is a great value for money course! Using Anneka’s tips and tricks will really help improve your bread making and confidence and show you how easy it is to make a range of delicious breads. The [video] session was great for seeing the techniques in action, and the follow up homework was a pleasure to do (and eat!) ... Overall this was an excellent course and all the resources were so useful, I know I will use them again and again.

Discover the ins and outs of bread and yeast baking – right in your very own kitchen!

Bread 101 is a fun and informative online baking course that will take you through the basics of bread baking, demystifying the world of baking with yeast.

Anneka Manning will take you through the process and share her more than 30 years of baking experience and knowledge, as well as all her practical tips and tricks.

The course includes a 3-hour masterclass pre-recorded video (which was recorded as a Live Session earlier this year), which enables you to take part in this course entirely at your own pace. Not only does the video include full step-by-step instructions for making a Basic White Milk Bread, as well as variations, but you will have the ability to bake along in your own time and have access to all the questions that were answered during the session.

This virtual masterclass is supported by printable recipes and resources which will become your go-to bread baking kit. Along with the Basic White Milk Bread recipe and variations (including dinner rolls and fruit bread), Anneka also shares a delicious Herb and Cheese pull-apart bread, a wholesome Seeded Wholemeal Loaf and divine Sticky Cinnamon Scrolls.

At the end of this course, you will come away not only with new-found confidence but all the knowledge you need to add bread baking to your list of baking skills!

I had tried making bread and had failures. This course gave me the extra tips and working along in real time helped to see exactly where I should be at rather than relying on a picture ... I learnt a lot and didn't need to leave home!

[This] course offered a whole new level of real learning. I loved the explanations of why things are done, along with the opportunity to ask questions. I've followed YouTube videos, but they don't help with adjusting or tailoring recipes for things like the availability of different ingredients or equipment ... [This course] can take your bread game to the next level, turning 'Okay' loaves into 'Is there any more?' loaves!
