Over the past 18 months, I have run What the Dickens Bakery from Kent (the home of Charles Dickens!) and now Shaftsbury.  Our mission has always been to bake, sell and deliver #RealBread to customers in the local community.  

What the Dickens @ Home

I also deliver a range of bread baking courses run in the comfort of your own home (or mine!).

In my courses, you will learn everything you knead to know about baking perfect bread using Baker's yeast and is ideal for beginners, intermediates ... and even children! 

My Micro Bakery?

My weekly range of bakes include:

  • Wheat - White, brown and Wholemeal
  • Rye - plain, fruit and seeded
  • English-style tins, Bloomers and Cottage loaves
  • French-style sticks, Pain de Campagne and miche
  • Italian-style Focaccia's
  • ... and much, much more

All our bakes are made from organic flour (stone ground where possible) and use just 3 or 4 ingredients: flour, water, salt and yeast (where called for)
