Use Your Loaf

Have a go at making your own bread . . .

 . . . then you will know what’s in it!

Use Your Loaf campaigner Chris has been busy baking . . .

Once upon a time, Chris’s home made bread was so heavy it could have been mistaken for a house brick, albeit without the frog and the letters L.B.C.!

With perseverance, practice, some good tips and learning from the occasional mistake, Chris’s bread making is much improved, so if Chris can do it  . . . no excuses . . . have a go yourself !

Chris has adapted a series of bread recipes for you to try, with step by step instructions and pictures of his efforts . . .
