I started baking bread during lockdown but my bread wasn't really rising enough and was a bit tough. I really needed some help with it. I was delighted to find this course. I watched the course through first and then attempted the recipes and I am absolutely thrilled with the results. I like how Lorraine explains every step fully and reiterates the important points. She makes it really easy to understand. I also like how you feel Lorraine is there with you in the workshop helping you along. These breads will definitely be in my repertoire for many years. Would highly recommend it.
"Delicious recipes and simple instructions. Loraine makes baking really enjoyable for both kids and grown ups. Highly recommend"!
I have watched tons of youtube videos, bought the bread books but I still couldn't make bread and didn't know why. I had been following Loraine on Instagram and saw all her beautiful creations so I was happy to see she had released a course. The format of the course makes it easy to learn. It's broken down into sections which makes it convenient to rewatch the different parts. The videos are really clear, you can see every detail. It's actually so simple when you follow the steps. Loraine is so knowledgeable and explains everything really well so it was easy to recreate them myself. I'm so happy I can finally bake bread.
"I’ve been following Loraine for a number of weeks now and it’s been such a lovely and positive experience. She has tonnes of patience and explains tasks very well in an easy to follow and fun way. My son and I have had such fun baking along and we’ve both learned some amazing new skills."
"Loraine is extremely creative and patient when teaching. What I loved most is that Loraine knew which skills to teach me and made it look so easy. She really considered the foundations of baking and built my skills up gradually ensuring I was secure at each stage. She planned the lessons so thoughtfully that she made each step simple to follow and I would always have something to take away with me and feel proud of."
"We have all thoroughly enjoyed the great bake alongs with Loraine. My 3 kids have participated and have been very proud and amazed at what they could bake! It has been so great to make baking part of our routine here. We are all very grateful".
"We did the bake along twice and found it great fun with a tasty treat at the end! Delighted that we found the site!"
