The excuses to bake just keep coming and this week you can sharpen your bread making skills.
Real Bread Week will be held between February 20 to 28 of this year, an annual, international celebration of additive-free loaves and the people who make them.
What is Real Bread Week?
Created and run by the Real Bread Campaign since 2010, they focus on encouraging people to buy real bread from local and independent bakeries or bake their own bread.
The campaign also runs a collection for Sustain, the charity behind Real Bread.
How to get involved
Each year activities and classes are normally held in bakeries, schools, mills, care homes, youth and community centres.
As we’re still in lockdown here in the UK, join in with the thousands of other home bakers who will be celebrating Real Bread Week. Gather your children, parents or flat mates, and get baking — don’t forget to share your real bread bakes to social media.
