Say Goodbye to Inconsistent Bread

No really. Say goodbye!

You've asked and I've heard you!  Bread Bootcamp is here!

In this LIVE, interactive two-day course, you'll learn:

  • What yeast is, and how to work with it successfully;
  • The right ingredients for the best bread;
  • Tips and techniques to know when your dough is ready to move to the next step;
  • Tips and techniques for shaping;
  • All about kneading and proofing and rising;
  • And so, so much more!

And did someone say freebies?  Why yes, that was me! 

 As a "thank you" for signing up for this class, you'll ALSO get:

  • Two special bread recipes that are not yet on the Begin with Butter blog; AND
  • A list of essential equipment and ingredients for bread-making (with my tried-and-tested favorites!)

After Bread Bootcamp 2022, you will be transformed into a more confident bread baker, and you'll be on the way to the best bread of your life.

And you'll have access to the course FOREVER if you need refreshers in the future!

Spoiler Alert: They Love it Here. And We Love Having Them Here!

“This Masterclass was absolutely amazing! It's perfect for all levels, but I'm going to share my experience as a new baker. For years I wanted to learn how to bake from scratch. It was such an intimidating process, until I met Shani of Begin with Butter. Her expertise, passion, and gift for teaching and baking make learning so much fun and inviting...I look forward to learning more baking techniques from BwB! Thank you again!”


“Shani's classes always inspire you to take your baking to the next level. I never leave without learning a new technique or tip that is helpful. She takes her time to thoroughly explain any technique and answer any questions that you may have.”


“Shani has a very clear way of explaining and teaching. It is refreshing. She takes her time to not only explain but to demonstrate.”


“Shani changed my life with her course. I am as confident during baking as I have always been while cooking...you gave me the foundation I needed to become this free spirit home chef recipe developer that I love being.”


“This class was just what I needed & it was such a treat! It has awakened the sleeping baker inside of me once again. Shani's style of teaching is so easy to follow...it's really exciting to put it all together.”
