Testimonials

“Having never baked anything before and I do mean NEVER, I was very sceptical that I could be taught the skills to produce such a fine looking loaf first time around. Many thanks to the genius of Kath Corfield at Veg Patch Kitchen for putting together such a fantastic online tutorial. If like me... you have the culinary skills of an Otter... I'm sure Kath will point you in the right direction too. ”

Tim

“Exceeded expectations as I learnt so much and am inspired to try and improve on the basic technique as well as try some new things. Videos were great, good quality and content, with very clear expectations and really useful to see what we should be aiming for. ”

Helen

“"I have never been particularly enthusiastic about making bread before as I don't particularly fancy the kneading - plus I am not always that patient - but this is certainly an eye opener and as you say it makes it easy." Nicola”

Your Teacher

I'm Kath and I am passionate about showing people how easy it is to make delicious bread at home. I have taught bread making at my cookery school, Veg Patch Kitchen, since 2015. I first got serious about bread making in 2009 when the bread I made for my family was terrible. It was hard as a brick. I was frustrated that I couldn't succeed with yeast cookery so I started to read about it and practice and I became obsessed with bread. Finally, the loaves I was making were the best we had ever tasted. I want to show everyone that they can make bread at home too. I set up my cookery school to share my knowledge and help others transform the way that they make bread. I have learned all the tricks that help me fit bread making into a busy day and I want to share these with you so that you can make delicious bread at home for your family and friends.
