It's Party Time!

It's Party Time!

Katie & I had the best time back in Bath with Richard Bertinet, this time we were learning Croissants, Danish Pastries and Viennoiserie... A top treat at lunchtime was when Marco Pierre White popped in to say hello (yes, we got a photo!). This week we are celebrating summer and inviting you to join us at the Brentford Street Party and the end of our road (Brook Road South) on Sunday 2nd July, 2-5pm. More info can be found here.

Back with Bertinet!

Back with Bertinet!

Regular customers & subscribers will remember the fabulous week that Katie & I spent with French Master Baker Richard Bertinet at his Cookery School in Bath back in January.We had a great time learning new techniques, recipes and skills.

This week we are returning to Richard for a Croissant & Viennoiserie Masterclass on Thursday and, whilst we will be baking on Friday 23rd June, we won't be able to offer the products that require overnight proving, which sadly means no sourdoughs just...

We hope you can join...

All about the polls!

All about the polls!

As you know, I hope, we all have the opportunity to vote in the general election this week. We are bombarded with polls that are trying to predict the outcome, which seem to be swinging back and forward between the two main parties. No-one will know for sure what we'll have as a result until Friday comes around. However, spot the link here, you can have some guarantees this Friday if you order from the Micro Bakery by 5pm on Thursday! For a bit of fun, I thought I'd show you our top three* products (*by online ordering). Are they...

Chocolate, Cardamom & Ciabatta!

The days are long, the grass is green, my washing is on the line, bright and clean! It really is beginning to feel like summer is on it's way (albeit a British Summer...), we survived last week baking in the heat, up to 37c in the conservatory, and are all ready to bake for you again this Friday. Orders are already coming in, so if you fancy trying something different from your usual bakes, we are definitely baking these goodies: Chocolate Chilli Squares & Chocolate Twists... Swedish Cardamom Knots - Mmm, a real treat worth a try! Italian Ciabatta - makes...
