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.
