Biography

John Lawrence worked in commercial bakers and pie makers in his youth and always enjoyed baking in the form of his mother’s cakes, but he left it all behind to pursue a career in consulting. As a result of his wife developing a wheat intolerance he began to experiment with bread-making and found the widespread understanding of how to make bread was not very effective. He has now developed a range of techniques for creating delicious and healthy breads to suit a range of diets. Prompted by friends he has used this experience to create a short course to share these skills with others.
