Hi, I'm Gareth.

It was 2005 when I was thrust into a bakery for the first time, I had no idea what it was all about. It was "just a job" at the time, I had no feeling of excitement about working in a bakery. It would just be an easier route into management. Little did I know, taking that job in the supermarket bakery would be the best decision of my life.

After working my way up to managing bakeries, owning my own artisan bakeries and teaching bread making skills, I think it's safe to say that baking bread is my main passion!

Busby's Bakery School started in 2018 to show everyday people how to make bread at home with simple artisan techniques so stodgy, dense and bland homemade bread is a thing of the past.

I love your feedback, good and bad so drop me an email to let me know how we are doing at Busby's Bakery School. See about me.
