I hope you have kept well and safe for another week. It was a good few days in the bakery especially on Friday when I, for once, did not try to hurry my bake along. The sourdough loaves were left plenty of time to finish proving before being whisked in the oven. Same thing with the Cornish which were mixed by 930AM but only baked 6 hours later. This freed up my morning and resulted in bigger and plumper loaves so good result all around!
Here is the menu for week commencing on 1 February 2021. Please order by Monday 5PM.
Thursday: Pain de Campagne (small or large) and Rugbrod (half or full).
Friday & Saturday: as Thursday with PdC in large only, Wild West (also large only), NYDR, Chocolate & Hazelnut and the special this week is the very herby Tahina & Za'atar levain.
As usual, Barny's delicious honey, set or runny, can be added to any bread order.
Have a great week,
Emma & Jules x
Apologies for the lateness of the menu but I seem to have run behind a list of tasks which gets longer rather than shorter as the days go by. And it's already the last week of January next week which is another thing that perplexes me. On the bright side, 3 more weeks until a potential end to lockdown.
If you have read that far, it'll be no surprise that I've had no time to experiment since last weekend. So this week's special wont be new but not everything has to be new to feel special! So here goes:
Please order by Monday 5PM please.
Thursday: Wild West and Rugbrod in standard/half or large/whole size.
Friday & Saturday: as Thursday (WW in large size only), Pain de Campagne (also large size only), Fig & Fennel and the special is Turmeric, nigella & onion levain again.
Friday only: my Cornish saffron bread. I will run my yeasted treats once a month only (Cornish Saffron alternated with Lincs plum bread) until further notice so grab that one if you like it!
Honey is available every baking day with bread orders.
Just a quick word on your paper bags: some of our you might have seen I used recycled paper bags for this week's deliveries (you would only have got one of YOUR old bags not somone else's just to be clear!). I'm not changing tack on the paper bags so please dont see this as a sign that you need to start returning your bags with the next delivery. I did it this week to buy myself a bit of time as I'm coming near the end of my current stash of bags. The re-used bags you had this week havent been touched in months so pose NO covid risks and this is why I thought it was OK to use them. But it's not time to go back to full recycling mode quite yet so please use your bags at home and put them in your compost bin when you are done with them. I'm still looking for a better solution including using personal canvas bags for all willing customers but that might need to wait after covid.
Have a great week,
Emma & Jules x
I hope you are surviving your lockdown and enjoyed your bread this week. I'm getting on a roll with the specials so fingers crossed for another good batch of fragrant loaves next week with plenty to look forward to.
Thursday: Wild West, Pain de Campagne and Rugbrod (all as standard/half and large/whole loaves)
Friday & Saturday: Wild West and Pain de Campagne both in large size only, Rugbrod (half or whole). There are two specials this week, an old friend and hopefully a new one: Buckwheat and Poppy which was last run in May 2019 and Cheddar and thyme levain (£3.50 for a standard loaf) which will be a simple sourdough based on wheat & rye flours, water, salt, mature cheddar cubes and fresh thyme. Be aware that the ssecond special is not suitable for people with milk allergy.
And I have plenty of honey jars left, both in set and runny.
Please place all orders by this Monday (18 January 2021) 5PM.

I wish you all the best for the new year and even if it didnt quite start as we wanted let's make the most of the next few weeks. As in previous lockdowns, we will continue baking and to fight the ambiant boredom we will strive to offer a special every week. So without further ado, here is what will be baked in week commencing this Monday.
Please put in your orders by 5PM on Monday 11 January 2021.
Thursday: Wild West in standard and large size and Wild West Heritage in standard size only.
The Wild West Heritage will use Kamut (Khorasan) flour of which we received a mammoth delivery during the holiday. Note that I have reviewed my production costs and need to increase the price of my WW standard from £2.70 to £3.00 in 2021. No change to the price of a large size loaf.
Friday & Saturday: Wild West and Pain de Campagne in large size only. Wild West Heritage, NYDR and our special: Turmeric, Nigella and Onion levain.
