My name is Brenda Daly. I am an award-winning baker and I run Daly Bread, a small but friendly microbakery from my home kitchen in Isleworth, SW London. I bake bread for local customers each week and I also offer breadmaking classes. Interested in learning to make freshly baked bread? Read on.

Bread Making Classes

‘ A wonderful experience for someone who’s never baked bread before. I thoroughly enjoyed learning the basics of how to make different types of bread. I’d highly recommend this class for all the amateurs like me’ Nita Vadgama, December 2017

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 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 in beginner’s breadmaking and baking for individuals and small groups throughout the year. Scheduled dates for these 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 discuss your needs:

I look forward to baking with you.

We will discuss the key ingredients to make good bread then mix, knead and shape various doughs. We will explore different rising agents, the best baking conditions and the equipment needed. There will be plenty of time for questions. Please note this class focusses on gluten based breads only.

    At the end of the course you will be presented with a bag of goodies created by your own fair hands with recipes, guidance, recommended bread books & web sites to follow and some other treats.

    Class sizes are small, no more than 4 to ensure you will gain individual attention and have time to ask questions

    No previous experience in bread or baking is expected. All students are actively encouraged to roll their sleeves up and get sticky and floury.
