  3. Picnic Sandwiches with a Pullman Pan

    Picnic Sandwiches with a Pullman Pan
    I’ve been baking from Nick Malgieri’s book since it was first published. It is a book I like, not least because I had a small hand in converting it from the US to UK version but in particular because the recipes contained are clear and achievable. We have a good range of Pullman Pans (the ones that let you bake...
  4. …and why eating your crust is good for you

    …and why eating your crust is good for you
    We talk a lot about flour and bread ingredients then how to combine and prove them to get the dough ready to bake, and that is very important to making the perfect loaf. Much less attention is given to what happens next: “bake for 40 minutes until done” is typical – but what is actually going on to change a...
  5. Make a Gift of a Panforte

    Make a Gift of a Panforte
    Receiving something home-made is always a bit special, whether something made with a high level of skill and competence or whether a little bit wonky – it is of course the willingness to spend time on someone else that is the delight in these busy times. I think that something home-baked and not at all wonky to eat at Christmas...
  6. Sweet Ricotta and Cream Cheese Danish

    It looks like the artisan bread world is expanding strongly at the moment, judging by the number of jobs being submitted to our jobs board. Hopefully this is a reflection of a general awakening to the experience of a loaf baked by highly skilled craft bakers, and long may it last. The response to our new spiral mixers that we...

Hopefully this will let us better focus what we do to suit you...
  8. The Perfect Gadget for Father’s Day

    The Perfect Gadget for Father’s Day
    Gadgets are great. Woodworking, cheese making, bread making, I like them all. When my builder does a job I struggled with in a few minutes because he has the right tool (and knows what he is doing), I go a bit green-eyed and put the tool on my wish-list. This happened with the walnut lame that Vanessa found being made...

  10. Sun-Kissed Red Pepper Focaccia

    Sun-Kissed Red Pepper Focaccia
    I admit to a little envy this week as I sit by my desk receiving videos, skype messages and photos during Vanessa’s visit to Mulino Marino near Turin. Still, while I sit inside looking out, I do know that this week at least – or for a day or two more anyway, we have weather akin to the beautiful weather...
