Our community kitchen is a fully equipped kitchen suitable for any food based projects. The space can be set up for event catering, food production, running workshops, team building or private parties where you can learn to bake with your mates!

We offer special discount rates for start up food producers and community groups. As a not for profit organisation all hire fees are used to support our community work.

Get in contact to find out more and arrange a look around.

Traditional Breadmaking

All our loaves use a traditional ‘sponge and dough method’ using stoneground flour.

Our sponge and dough method is a simple  process, the sponge is made and allowed to ferment overnight and then the sponge is added when we mix the final dough. This gives the bread long fermentation time, a depth of flavour and a great texture.  We use the sponge and dough method in  our daily bake and also teach this method of breadmaking on our courses. If you want to know more – please ask when you’re next in the bakery.

May Special

Our May special will be a 100% Spelt and Honey loaf.

If you haven’t tried a spelt loaf before, Spelt flour is one of the most popular whole grain, non-wheat flours available. Spelt has been used since Roman times and has a lovely nutty flavour combined with a slight sweetness from the honey in the loaf.

Pop along to the bakery on a Saturday to try one for yourself.
