Sourdough September – it’s nearly here!

Sourdough September is nearly upon us – not that we’re wishing away all that (potential) August sunshine.

For a whole month, we’ll be giving away free pots of starter, instructions for making your own ‘real bread’ and offering a free online loaf clinic. If you want to take part, kindly register interest by dropping us a line or commenting on our Facebook page so we can keep a handle on how many kits to prepare. Excitin’ stuff eh?

Sourdough September is organised by the Real Bread Campaign – you can find our more about the brilliant work they do here.

It’s Real Bread week!

This week we are celebrating REAL BREAD WEEK!

There’s loads going on (read about the floury fiesta of fougasse formation here) and we’ll be providing dough to a local school so all the kids can try sourdough pizza. Did you know we also give out free recipes and instructions for making your own sourdough? To give it a whirl, just drop us a line.

Ps you can buy your own limited edition ‘I Love Gluten’ aprons and Fair Trade, organic cotton t-shirts here and make a doughnation to the Real Bread Campaign for each one you buy.

Big city, bright lights:
Bluebird lands in Leeds:

Our Leeds shop is over a month old now – and we’ve had a really warm welcome to the city. Enthusiastic customers and supportive traders have made the move to big-city life worth every tricky (read: stressful) moment. We know that people are still discovering our shop daily and our brilliant new staff have been on the receiving end of some great feedback. If there’s anything special you’d like to see – or taste – just get in touch. We love to give our little baking team a challenge.
