Alex Vaughan - Wakefield

Contact this Bread Angel
Alexandra Vaughan has been running her micro-bakery, The Crow’s Rest Bakehouse, since 2016, and has taught dozens of people how to make their own bread in a domestic setting. She is a member of the Bread Angels network and a supporter of the Real Bread Campaign and has volunteered at multiple bakeries around the UK. Her bakes have won several awards at the Tiptree World Bread Awards.
Initially based in London, she moved to Wakefield, West Yorkshire, in 2018 and re-opened the micro-bakery later that year. She also worked as a lead baker at Love Bread, in Brighouse in early 2019, leaving when the bakery closed down.
In May 2019 she ran a successful crowdfunding campaign that allowed her to invest in a bread baking oven increasing production capacity and product quality.
You can find her at Westgate Train Station on Mondays from 4 to 7pm selling her artisanal bread or you can place an order for collection from her home on Thursdays evening.
She teaches bread making from her home kitchen, classes kept small to allow plenty of time to talk and discuss the processes covered, whilst getting you to make a hand-full of bakes from scratch.

Become a Bread Angel - Start your own gluten free microbakery

On this "Start your own Gluten Free micro bakery" course we will be covering gluten-free bread baking and you will learn how to get your self set up, explore the different type of products that have more impact with customers and overall how to create your own successful micro bakery!

The course runs for 12h over a weekend (6h each day) and each day will cover different aspects of the bureaucracy behind setting up a small food business and how to promote it and engage with potential customers (think sourcing ingredients and equipment, marketing, legal requirements and administration). We will also explore different types of gluten free flours, their properties, nutritional values and behaviour.

Over 6h each day we will have bake and talk, so be ready to go back home with a lot of products and a head full of ideas.
I am based in WF1 5AT, Agbrigg, Wakefield, 3 minutes walk from Sandal & Agbrigg station. There is also plenty of parking on the road.

The Breadangels course is run over two days, please note only the date of the first course day is listed here.

PLEASE NOTE - The Gluten-Free baking Microbakery course takes place in a kitchen where gluten flours are also used and I can not guarantee no cross-contamination.

After the course you are given the opportunity to become an affiliated Bread Angels and enjoy all the benefits that this entails.
