Artisan bakers will be sharing the love of their loaf during Real Bread Week (Feb 24 to Mar 4), sending the message that good bread should only be made from flour, water, yeast and a little salt.

Diana Holba opened the award-winning Aston Parish Bakery in 2016. She said: “Wishing to share my passion for and knowledge of bread-making, I joined an amazing network of fellow bakers dedicated to baking bread using traditional methods.”

During Real Bread Week, Di will be promoting the Real Bread Campaign in her baking classes and, on March 20 at 8pm, will give a talk entitled ‘A Bread Revolution’ at St Mary’s School in Aston, where people can also enjoy some tasty bread.

Jo’s Loaves in Luton, started by Jo Bottrill in 2011, will be at Hitchin Farmers’ and Craft Market from 9am on Saturday, and at Offley Farmers’ Market in Offley Village Hall from 1pm until 4pm on March 2.
