Just back from an hour spent browsing the yeasty delights at the first Real Bread Festival on London's Southbank. There's loads going on – demos from leading artisan bakers, such as our old chum Richard Bertinet and our new friends from Outsider Tart, an American-style bakery in Chiswick; tips from experts on how to perfect your homemade loaf, plus dozens of delicious breads to taste and buy, and small producers of cheese, jam and honey in case you fancy more than just butter on your perfect slice. The festival's on all weekend and it's free (although there's a fee for some of the workshops), so head down there and let us know what you buy!
