Baking is my second career, and I was lucky enough to be mentored and to become part of the Breadshare community when it was just getting off the ground. My partner and son work with me at Breadshare striving to make it a community bakery with a difference.

I am so glad that I found this experience on AirBnb. Their thoughtfulness with food and the community rings true with me. I suggest doing this when you are visiting Edinburgh. You will gain a strong sense of how freshly made food with less than 10 ingredients tastes, smells, and feels like. Thank you for being part of the community!

A wonderful experience, not just standing back but getting to actually have a go and learn by doing. Great to see a small and personal business from the inside. I would absolutely recommend!
