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.

Christmas bread class - 7th December 2019

Get your hands around a classic and a few simple and delicious recipes to treat the family over the holiday season. Together we will be making:
Stollen - homemade taste best! & if like me you have relatives who don't like marzipan, you can do one with and one without.
Christmas focaccia - a sweet focaccia with hardly any work involved that you can mix in the evening and bring together in 5 minutes in the morning, for an unusual breakfast treat
Christmas Soda bread - walnuts and stilton come together in this quick loaf perfect for keeping the relatives happy with a taste of warm bread.
There will be a light tea and refreshments, allowing time to chat. Please bring an apron and a bag to take home all the bread you have made.
Notes will be provided with step by step recipes from the day which you can replicate at home.
Suitable for ages 16+.
If you don't see a class time that suits you, email me and I can arrange a more suitable date and time.
I am based in WF1 5AT, Agbrigg, Wakefield, 3 minutes walk from Sandal & Agbrigg station. There is also plenty of parking on the road.
