As a regular contributor to The Guardian and Delicious Magazine, Lepard has also been sought after to join the judging team on the first series of The Great Australian Bake Off.

During the bread making course, you will learn the basics of bread making, covering the different types of flours, yeasts and techniques behind kneading and baking so that you can leave a fully capable and confident bread maker. You’ll discover how to use the correct bread-making techniques such as mixing, kneading, shaping, and baking the perfect loaf as well as how to create and keep a healthy leaven, the sourdough starter.
