About us

Nestled in the hustle and bustle of Borough Market, London, Bread Ahead’s journey began in 2013 when founder Matthew Jones, having spent 25 years in the restaurant industry decided it was time to focus on great baking and great products!

We opened our flagship bakery school in Borough Market, London, in 2014 to show the public just how easy baking good bread can be. Since early 2020, Bread Ahead Bakery School has reached thousands of homes globally through our online baking classes which have become a treasured part of kitchens all over the world! We’ve grown to become a destination for both Londoners and foodies across the globe.

But we are just getting started! We have enjoyed a steady growth and expanded locally throughout London, England, our debut international outpost in Dubai and now in Saudi Arabia. We’re at an exciting point in the development of our team and we’re looking for like-minded people who are as passionate about food and hospitality as we are.
