REAL BREAD WEEK – 18th – 26th FEBRUARY 2023…

Real Bread Week – 18th to 26th February 2023 – Created and run by the Real Bread Campaign since 2010, #RealBreadWeek is the annual, international celebration of Real Bread and the people behind its rise.

Each year, bakeries, baking schools, mills, schools, care homes, youth and other community groups around the world bake special loaves and run classes and other activities. Meanwhile countless people bake at home, some with their children other family members, colleagues or friends, and take to social media with photos of themselves with loaves they’ve baked or bought.

What is Real Bread Week?

Created and run by the Real Bread Campaign since 2010, #RealBreadWeek is the annual, international celebration of Real Bread and the people behind its rise.

Buy, bake, boost

They run it to focus and brighten the spotlight on their key work of encouraging and helping people to:

  • BUY Real Bread from local, independent bakeries
  • BAKE their own Real Bread

They also rattle the collection tin a bit harder for Sustain, to BOOST the charity behind Real Bread Campaign.

Unlike industrial loaf products, Real Bread is personal. For the Real Bread Week’s 14th annual outing they are inviting YOU to shout about what makes yours particularly special, or even unique. 

  • Perhaps it’s because Real Bread and bakers from your cultural heritage are few and far between round your way.
  • Maybe your Real Bread is made from locally-grown, locally-milled grain, or even is the fruit of your involvement in a non-commodity grain network.
  • It could be that you’re the only baker(y) continuing, or reviving, a type of Real Bread specific to your area that has all but died out..

If you want to chip in with a story, profile of a baker, or recipes from your own national, ethnic or cultural heritage, please drop them a line here.

There are plenty of ways that you (yes, YOU) can get stuck in…and maybe even raise dough for the Campaign at the same time.

Perhaps it’s as simple as creating (or nominating) a special for Real Bread Week.

If you have a team, are any of the bakers from a different background to you and fancy sharing a bread from their heritage? If you go down that route, please give that baker public credit and perhaps even a bonus…

Perhaps you could organise a Real Bread:

  • baking class / course
  • pizza night
  • social event, bringing together friends, colleagues or neighbours to bake together; chew over what everyone made at home; or chat and eat stuff from the bakery.

I am a mum and wife to a lovely caring family. I’ve suffered with chronic back pain for over 30 years and started writing my first blog in 2007 which covered back and chronic pain. Since then I have written many more blogs for myself and customers. I find it takes me away from my pain to another place. I love it so much I think it should be part of a recovery process after illness or surgery. I hope you enjoy reading through my blogs.
