Meet your teacher

Kath, Veg Patch Kitchen

This is me, Kath, doing what I love. Teaching people how to make bread.  I am a self-taught baker, having learned to cook at my mother’s knee. I have kept a food blog at www.theordinarycook.co.uk since 2009, where I share my recipes and love of food. It was this food blog that ignited my passion for all things bread.

When I first started to make bread for my family I was terrible at it. My loaves were more like house bricks or frisbees. I got frustrated and thought I would never understand how to bake with yeast. However, not being one to give up easily, I decided to challenge myself to learn. I then quite quickly became obsessed. I know all about the fear and frustration that can come with making bread. However, over more than a decade of practising and researching I now know all the tips and tricks to show you how to make the best bread you have ever eaten and in a way that easily fits into your busy day.

Veg Patch Kitchen Cookery School

I set up Veg Patch Kitchen Cookery School in September 2014. My mission is to teach others how easy it can be to make bread.

We have a range of online bread courses that are designed to help you learn how to make great bread at home. They are self-paced courses so that you can learn at your own pace and in the comfort of your own home, dipping in and out when you like. You have access to the courses for at least 12 months,(in reality much longer as you will have access for as long as they are available), so that you can revisit the course as many times as you like for a quick refresher or every time you bake a loaf.

You can also come along to our cookery school next to our home in Ironbridge. It is very likely that you will meet my husband Richard. He is very good at coming in for a chat whilst doing the washing up and making cups of tea. We very much look forward to welcoming you.

I love using freshly milled flour (from my tabletop flour mill) in my breads, cakes, biscuits and pastry so much that I have a website dedicated to it. Pop over to millingfresh.com if you would like to learn more about using freshly milled flour.

If you want to learn more about bread and get regular updates you can sign up to receive our newsletter. You can also join our Facebook group or take a look at my articles on bread making and my videos filled with helpful tips.
