Deliciously Gluten Free Artisan Breads
What you'll learn
- Bake seven very different kinds of gluten free bread, rolls and pizza mix my own blends, and use the principles to develop recipes of my own.
- No previous experience or knowledge is required, only a passion for great gluten free food, and a domestic kitchen.
- A printable list of ingredients you will need can be previewed free before you buy the course.
The course is built around seven key recipes that illustrate different basic techniques in gluten free baking. We start by discussing the principles of GF baking, and examining the key ingredients - in particular, a surprisingly wide range of naturally gluten free flours with which to add appeal to your hand-baked breads. As we go along, we show you how to blend your own flours, and how to store them in portion-sized bags for ultimate convenience in your weekly bake. From classic white sandwich bread, to more artisanal hand-shaped loaves, baguettes, pizzas and rolls, we cover enough ground to keep even the most demanding satisfied, whether you've just arrived on planet GF, or you've been diagnosed for 20 years. Welcome to a more gorgeously gluten free world!
Please note: all recipes are vegan or have vegan subsitutions. If you are allergic to baker's yeast please look out for our course, Naturally Gluten Free Sourdough Breads.
Here are a few of our favourite 5 star testimonials from our other courses:
I gave five stars because the genuine enthusiasm of Penny and Dragan is so infectious, and all the various aspects are explained and demonstrated in such an easy to follow manner. I felt drawn in and couldn't wait to get a starter going. I'm looking forward to the time when I have rocked & rolled & chafed and, hopefully, ended up with a lovely smooth ball of dough - like the one that Dragan cradled in his hands so affectionately. Looks a little like play dough for grown-ups. George.E. Morley
Penny and Dragan removed the mystique surrounding sourdough and made it very "do-able." Really love the FAB recipe! Bobby Ollar
…The bonus too is they show the stages of dough development clearly and this was something I struggled to understand before this course. They keep it simple as bread baking should be. I'm really looking forward to more courses. Julia Bilecki
Dragan and Penny! Thank you for putting together such an awesome course. Incredible support, you know what you are talking about. Very insightful course. I really learned a lot, all of the additional advice/tips very helpful and useful. All the best for you. Marcelo Ariatti
The videos are priceless! Aden

Who this course is for:
- Gluten free individuals who want (and deserve!) bread made with love, not sawdust.
- It's mainly for beginners and improvers, or long-term GF people who are looking for a little inspiration.
Lifelong bakers Dragan Matijevic and his partner, Penny Williams, set up their first microbakery in Oxford, 2008, selling artisan bread to locals from "The smallest bakery in the world" - a tiny, converted garden store. It was originally intended as a side-project, something to complement their freelance incomes as a magician (Dragan) and a copywriter/ translator (Penny). But the bread had other ideas! It proved such a success that they were soon baking six days a week, and being asked to give classes.
In 2012, Dragan and Penny moved to Devon, establishing The Artisan Bakery School in a rambling Devonshire cottage with a good kitchen and a slightly bigger bakery. They now offer a wide range of one-day classes or baking mini-breaks, from Beginners through Artisan Sourdough & Rye, Woodfired Pizza, Viennoiserie, Gluten-Free, Wheat-Free and Heirloom Grains, Heritage Techniques.
The Artisan Bakery School focuses on teaching people how to bake bread with integrity. That means authentic techniques, and ethical ingredients: no chemicals, no preservatives, no cheating and no cutting corners. We also show people who are time-poor how to fit real, slow-rise bread into their hectic lifestyles with minimal effort. We think baking should be fun and there’s no reason why you have to be a slave to your dough!
Teaching the craft of artisan bread making is our main trade. This is because we believe that such skills need to be passed on to future generations – for their pleasure, for their health and for the health of the planet.
