How did I get into bread baking?
'I have started to bake my own bread about 19 years ago, when I moved to London from Prague and could not really find the type of bread I was used to.
I experimented with different recipes and after few initial disasters I produced bread I could be proud of!
Since then, we rarely buy bread in shop and one of my personal challenges is never to run out of my own handmade bread'.
'I love to share my skills and passion for a good bread with you - whether you are just starting out or have bit more of an experience!
Join me for the next workshop and find out for yourself how easy is to bake a good bread - when you know how!
Magdalena - Cocoa & Heart

'Thank you for running your bread course for our family. We've really enjoyed the day and couldn't quite believe how much bread we've made during the session. We absolutely loved the process of bread baking - it's such a relaxing thing to do! Well it is now, when I know what to do! I've always struggled with bread baking and never realised how important the bread shaping was. Mine bread has always gone flat in the oven.
You'll be pleased to know that I'm putting my new bread baking skills to a good use and so far I've baked my own bread every week. It's still tricky to bake enough to last us for the whole week, but my eldest son has started to help me and promissed he will help to knead the dough for me!
I love how bread baking is bringing our family together and I wanted to thank you for that.

'I didn't know what to expect from the day, because it was bought for me as a surprise birthday present by my daughters. I must have mentioned that when I retire I finally want to learn how to bake a bread!
Thank you for being so patient with me - I think I'm really slow learner, but your bread course was so nicely paced and you've always explained what to do next and helped me when I needed it. I could never believe that I can bake bread in just one morning, but here you are, I think I'm the proof you can!
