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.

  • Basic Bread Making

    This is a hands on breadmaking course where you will learn the principles and practicalities of how to bake different kinds of basic bread. We will discuss the key ingredients to make good bread then mix, knead and shape various doughs.

    Expect to roll your sleeves up and get sticky and floury!

    We will make a plain white/wholemeal loaf, buns, a seeded dough, a soda bread and a fougasse. We will explore different raising agents, the best baking conditions and the equipment needed to make your own bread. A light lunch is provided. The class size is kept to a small number to ensure individual attention and plenty of time for questions.

    No previous experience of bread making is required.

    At the end of the session you will leave with a bag of your baked goodies plus recipes, guidance, recommended reading and suppliers.

    I look forward to baking with you!
