The Bread List

“Bread is the king of the table and all else is merely the court that surrounds the king.”
Louis Bromfield

How it works

I bake to order each Friday, offering a range of breads and other bakes as detailed on my bread list which is published in red below. Please order ahead following the given deadlines to guarantee your chosen order. I sometimes have some spares as I batch bake however these can go quite fast. Orders can be collected from my home near the Royal Oak pub in Isleworth, or delivered by arrangement (see note below). 

If you have a special event that you would like me to cater for please get in touch as soon as possible to discuss possibilities.

I look forward to baking for you!
