About The Bread Companion
The Bread Companion is an online platform for BREADUCATION! Over the next few months, we will be publishing useful, bready content every Sunday as well as tips, thoughts and recipes via our blog, The Bap, our vlog, Bitesized Baking and our socials. Initially, we started life as a nomadic, teaching bakery in 2014, run by baker/designer Julia Georgallis. We built two different iterations of a mobile wood fired oven and travelled the UK and further afield, running workshops and baking bread. After 6 years of being on the road, teaching hundreds of people how to make their own loaf and baking/consulting for a number of clients, we have put our physical bakery to rest for a while. The trailer has been donated to DOH Life Bakery in Hackney Wick, London.
