I run What the Dickens Bakery from Shaftesbury, North Dorset. Why 'Dickens'? Well, I used to live in Kent (the home of Charles Dickens!) but decided to make the 'brave' move and live back in the county of my youth.
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
Our bread is made using organic flour (stoneground where possible) and I use just 4 ingredients: flour, water, salt and yeast (where called for)
I look forward to meeting you soon.
