real_bread_knead_to_knowFrom 17th January 2011, Knead to Know: the Real Bread starter, the introductory guide to bringing Real Bread back to the heart of a local community, will be available to order from

In his introduction to the guide, Campaign ambassador Richard Bertinet, the award-winning author of Dough and Crust, founder of The Bertinet Kitchen & Bakery, and BBC Food Champion 2010, says: “Whether you are a professional baker, a home baker who would like to turn a hobby into a career or just someone who loves Real Bread, then this handbook will become an invaluable tool.”

Published both in print and as a PDF download (price TBC but with a discount for Campaign members), Knead to Know contains information on business models, relevant legislation, money matters, equipment, ingredients, basic recipes, techniques, voluntary apprenticeships, pages of courses, equipment and ingredient suppliers, further reading, and much more. Existing professional bakers will find helpful advice on making the transition from additive-assisted production to baking all-natural, Real Bread and how to market it successfully.

In amongst these wholesome slices of advice, are tasty crumbs from people who know how to knead, including master bakers Paul Barker, Troels Bendix, Aidan Chapman, Paul Merry, and Andrew Whitley; as well as UK Community Supported Bakery pioneer, Dan McTiernan of The Handmade Bakery.

Campaign project Chris Young says: ‘Knead to Know is for anyone who has watched someone else choosing between industrial loaves by squeezing them the same way that they test loo rolls, and thought: “I wish there was a way that I could help to bring Real Bread back into my local community.”’

Part of Sustain: the alliance for better food and farming, and funded by the Big Lottery Fund’s Local Food program, the Real Bread Campaign champions locally produced loaves and finds ways to make bread better for us, better for our communities and better for the planet.
