Are you interested in learning to make freshly baked bread? Or know someone who might be? Read on but be warned it can be highly addictive!

I'm Brenda Daly, an award-winning baker (Silver and Bronze at the World Bread Awards 2017 and again in 2019).
I run Daly Bread, a small but friendly microbakery from my home kitchen in Isleworth, West London. I bake bread for local customers each week and I also offer bread making classes.

'Fabulous, Fun and the best course I’ve been on! For a beginner it was spot on. The concept works. Nothing was too much trouble. Lunch was lavish and healthy. What a treat. Very therapeutic.' Ria Beaumont, September 2019

Bread Making Classes
I am passionate about good bread and the process of baking – the feel of the dough, the amazing aromas that waft around the house on a bake day, the satisfaction of seeing a loaf rise and then change colour in the oven, and of course, the texture and taste of the end product.  I welcome the opportunity to share my love of bread with you in a baking class.

I offer informal hands on classes for individuals and small groups throughout the year -
- Introduction to Bread Making
- Sweet Artisan Baking
- Introduction to Sourdough

Scheduled dates are detailed below. I can also arrange a bespoke class at a date and time that suits  – and I can travel to you too - drop me a line to explore options: or view my website:

I look forward to baking with you!
