After 20 years in the music industry Dylan Chambers has turned his passion for baking into The Baking Chambers, a micro-bakery offering courses and selling artisan bread to people local to Lockeridge.
‘Bread is often mis-represented because modern breads are made in minutes with fast-acting yeast and additives. If you make bread yourself you not only control the ingredients but end up with a product that is naturally low in gluten and yeast, is better for you and more digestible. Real sour dough is full of probiotics which is great for gut health’.
A combination of a week at Richard Bertinet cookery school in Bath ten years ago, extensive reading & practice and an advanced artisan bakery course has honed Dylan’s technique. His approach simplifies the baking process showing that making a fantastic loaf isn’t hard.
‘I love seeing people come through the door thinking at best they’ll make one good loaf, then being amazed when they leave with a few fantastic products. Groups are no more than 8 – it’s hands on, everything is made from scratch and everyone get lots of attention. You get to understand the process, the ingredients and work the dough with your hands.’
There are adult, kids, pizza and advanced courses with attendees describing Dylan as a master of his craft and his classes fun and revolutionary. His bread is so delicious that his regular customers are absolutely hooked. You won’t believe that bread could taste this good.
I love Wilshire for the diversity of the landscape & wildlife, where else can you get ancient broadleaf forests, the big skies, the sweet, clean air coming off the Atlantic - makes sense our ancestors decided to set up camp here.
