"I would wholeheartedly recommend Karen’s happy tummy Bakery school online course. Karen’s passion and expert knowledge is second to none and she garners enthusiasm from behind the camera. she makes bread making fun, interesting and captivating Leaving you wanting to learn more each week. Detailed knowledge is shared on why quality ingredients is important, why the methods are necessary and most importantly patiently walks us through every recipe. She shares a large volume of fabulous recipes to try, all based around the power of the fermented sourdough. I have loved every one of them and I can truly say my relationship with and view of bread has changed during this course. I now incorporate bread into my every day meals and my stomach is loving it. Thank you again Karen - your videos and regular emails and hints and tips show the passion you have to transform the view of bread and ensure many more people can enjoy these fabulous breads for their better health and enjoyment."

"I'm still making the teff loaf from your invaluable class & it's still the only thing helping me!! (Despite seeing Doctors & going to a Nutritionist since I came to your class). Your bread is magic...your knowledge is magic."

"Karen's zeal would put Jesus to shame!"
- Laura Craik, journalist.
"Specialising in high fibre, cultured breads and bakes, she's lithe and clear-skinned, with an infectious Irish enthusiasm. We met for the first time in January when she hosted a dinner at the Soho-based fermented food pop-up, Kultured. Then, like now, she spoke about the gut with the clear-eyed zeal of someone who's set on converting the world to her way of thinking."
- Alexandra Jones, journalist.
""The kitchen is not my natural habitat". This was pretty much the first thing out of my mouth when I arrived at Karen's for her Fundamentals One Day course. I was a very happy customer of her delivery service and only the idea of losing the ability to have one of her delicious scones, loaves or banana bread galvanised me to join the course and learn to do it for myself. Not the most auspicious start..... However, Karen's enthusiasm and passion is infectious and, in no time, was getting stuck in. Karen manages the trick of making the day fun and informal while also being incredibly informative and productive. I left with a stash of goodies to take home and enjoy over the coming days. In fact, I had such a good time that I decided to do the course a second time. After all, you don't go from baking novice to guru in one day."

"Best bread school ever!!!"

“I’ve been having at least one piece of the scones/teff loaf/sourdough loaf since last Friday and my energy levels have increased massively. I don’t even feel like I need a coffee in the morning. My poops (sorry, lol) have also been way better.”
- Flick, bakery student.
"Karen, what can I say! You're a bloody genius, the heritage loaf was bloody delicious and left me feeling super sprightly - so light. You have brought light to my life and my digestive system. Thank you."
