Domestic demo ovens available

Jeremy teaches artisan baking at UCT to the post-graduate entrepreneurship students and has built 10 domestic ovens especially for this. These ovens will be available for sale as demo ovens at the end of May. Please be in touch if you're interested in a brand new oven at R9500 or a demo oven at R7 500.

This domestic oven bakes 4 loaves, or 2 pizza's per bake.

The ovens operate off the grid and use wood offcuts, which makes them highly efficient and cost effective.

Fresh bread on Fridays

Our verandah in Kalk Bay has become a sun-warmed space of laughter, learning and the smell of hot baking bread.  Jeremy, AKA Jedd's Handcrafted, has his own BREADshop in the making, ensuring that the model can be replicated by people at both ends of the pyramid.

He's baking ciabatta with freshly milled grains, rye and wholegrain sourdoughs.  We'll let you know when there is bread available.

In the meantime, we're doing one thing at a time, today is baking.

New website

At BREADrev pioneering comes naturally. 

Many people who know BREADrev, will know that we began revving up the bread industry with the development of wood-fired rocket ovens in our back yard in Kalk Bay; our first bakery school was in Khayalitsha on a site with no running water and no electricity; the first BREADshop was located in a container and was closed down by local politicians.

One of our shortfalls, usually a result of enthusiasm and plenty of energy, is we think things are finished before they are.

In Jeremy's mind the small domestic oven is complete, although his latest prototype is still under construction; we have a BREADshop based in our home in Kalk Bay, although the range of artisan bread changes weekly; we have large commercial ovens ready to sell and distribute around the country but have changed our original model.

So this blog tells you to be with us on the journey.  Our ovens are ready, or nearly ready.  BREAD is available on Friday's from Jedd's Handcrafted.  Courses are available weekly with Jeremy as part of his usual Jedd's production for orders.  Training is via DVD and a manual.  All these things are someway on the path to completion.  In the meantime, we're baking for change
