ARTISAN BREAD SCHOOL®

WELCOME

Artisan bread is special: it demands a variety of skills, a knowledge of kneading, fermenting and shaping together with the essential ingredient of time. But artisan bread is more than the sum of its parts. It is a state of mind, a focus on what we are trying to achieve. It is a commitment to quality. It is an understanding that we do this out of determination to be individualists and eat only wonderful bread.” – Carl Shavitz

When it comes to sourdough bread there’s no better teacher than Carl.

Unbelievable two days with Carl Shavitz, master bread maker,
here at South Farm handing down proper bread-making skills.

Highly recommend the course in Italy, one of the best experiences of my life!!!
