I come from a family of bakers and confectioners that stretch back over ten generations ,moving from green street Bath to Upper Duke street Liverpool in1835 when the port was the gate way to Europe and full of new businesses.
My aim and passion is to bring the British bakery up to date and not to try to replicate a French patisserie, there are so many great British cakes and breads that just need a face lift.
The principle is simple no additives and only use the best ingredients because if you only put good things in you only get good things out, and be seasonal, also
You would not put additives in your cooking and baking at home, and they are not for the benefit of the consumer only for the producer so why would you eat them.
We are a local bakery and very much part of the community and always buy are ingredient locally this helps to keep the money in the local economy ,and keep other craft food producers to prosper
