Bread is a fundamental part of our diet: 99% of UK households buy bread and 74% of us eat it at least once a day, whether it is a quick slice of toast before we rush out the door to work, or the essential part of that hangover curing bacon sandwich.
Unfortunately, the majority of households buy the tasteless pap created by the Chorleywood Process, that is sold by supermarkets up and down the land.
With that in mind, if you make one New Year’s Resolution this year, it should be to make your own bread.

This year is the 50th birthday of the introduction of ‘Chorleywood Bread Process’ which completely changed how the majority of bread is made in this country, and left us with the tasteless pap that the majority of people buy in the UK today.
It is certainly not a birthday I will be celebrating, and here are the reasons why.

I’ve always loved making my own bread, and found it very therapeutic, particularly after a hard day at work!
However, I heard about the ‘Real Bread Campaign’ and decided to put my money where my mouth is and join the campaign for better bread.
