Bill King is a regular stall holder at Llanyrafon Manor Market in Cwmbran which is next to my home town of Newport.
Bill says: I trained at Ballymaloe Cookery School in Ireland where baking was a core element of the curriculum. We baked every day and a, randomly selected, bread was part of the final practical exam. On leaving Ballymaloe and Local Government I decided to set up as a micro baker, working from home.
Bill now runs courses on bread baking from his micro bakery. The course is limited to 4 people and the fees are just £40 per course. More information on course dates etc., can be found by visiting his website.. www.billkingartisanbaker.co.uk/
