About the course
On the course we teach people how to start their own micro bakery. In addition to baking a lot of different kinds of bread, you will learn a great deal about ingredients and methodology as well as help you understand the basics of sales and marketing and the logistics and admin involved in having your own small business.
Ma Baker is run by Liz Wilson a teacher, passionate home cook and baker. Liz completed the Bread Angel’s Micro Bakery course in July 2013 and fell in love with the magic of bread. She then spent the following year volunteering in bakeries and cooking schools around London, and working alongside other Bread Angels. In 2014 she was runner up in the Home Baker category in the World Bread Awards. This spurred her on and in 2015, she opened her micro bakery selling her award-winning breads to her local community. Many awards and accolades have followed including a 3-star rating from The Great Taste Awards and most recently winner of the London region of the Triptree Bread Hero Awards 2020.
So, what can I expect…
This review from a new Bread Angel from one of Liz’s recent courses sums it up...
''I am super super happy that I took the course as it exceeded my expectations on every level. Before I decided to take the course, I ummed and ahhed , but having decided to take the course I didn't look back. A week later, I am still buzzing with all the knowledge and practical aspects I learned. But mostly, it's my new found confidence with making and selling that I feel I've gained the most.
Although it seemed that two days was a short, we made an extraordinary amount in the time. In the relaxed atmosphere of Liz's home, the environment amplified the nature of what we were doing- bread aromas surrounded and comforted us as we created hand crafted and beautiful loaves. Liz as ever was fantastic in her delivery, clarity and wealth of information. That alone was worth it!
My fellow Bread Angels were equally stimulating and wonderful to work with as I felt part of a group who were like-minded in their pursuit of setting up businesses.
The Bread Angels course is a fantastic step to taking off on your Bread Adventures. I promise you wont be disappointed- I wasn't:-)'' Gloria
