Focaccia video w/ Slap+Fold Technique

Hi all,


I'm James and I've got a bread book out in the UK - Brilliant Bread (Ebury Press).


Here's one of the promo videos we made - showing one of the most basic breads from my book; focaccia. It also gives a detailed demonstration of the Slap and Fold technique:

Hello James,  I've just had a quick look at your video, will go back to it when I have more time.  Aren't you the young man who was on the Great British Bake Off last year?  I really enjoy watching that series and thought you might have been the winner last year!  That's if it is you.....

It's meeee! The book's actually rather good, too. You can get it at all the usual outlets...

Welcome, James, and congrats on the book!  It looks like we should be able to find it in Canada and the States too.  I'll have to see if I can track down a copy.

I enjoyed your video too.

Cheers mate! Thank you very much - it kind of approaches it from a different perspective: a beginner one, but a beginner 'home baker'. How to bend bread around a busy life, etc.


amazon do ship transatlantically, but hopefully one day we'll be published across the pond! Of course, it's available on kindle but it's not QUITE the same....
