The Bread Companion is a nomadic, microbakery that travels around encouraging people to eat, buy and bake their own bread and generally take more control over their food! Inspired by communal bread ovens of the past, the bakery uses a wood fired oven to bake bread, run supper clubs and events, as well as to teach people how to make their own homemade loaves from scratch. Run by part baker, part industrial designer, Julia Georgallis, TBC has run a great many workshops all over the place, from Stroud to Sweden, council estates to glampsites.
TBC is currently running a ferment focussed crash course in sourdough bread making, Yeast in the East in Leyton, East London. The classes are aimed at beginners who would like to learn how to make a sourdough loaf and those who have dabbled in bread making before but would like to consolidate their skills.
