Afternoon all,

A couple of new breads have been available over the last couple of weeks. Firstly I’ve been selling a seedy baguette (baguette aux Céréales) which people are liking. It’s got a mix of seeds based on Eric Keyser’s pain aux Céréales which is sold from his Parisien bakery. This is now available on all 3 baking days @ £1.70

Last Friday I also baked my first pumpernickel bread. It was a long wait. Firstly it took 48 hours from first build of the sourdough to putting in the oven. Then there was a 16 (sixteen) hour bake using the heat of the oven. The sugars in the loaf really caramelised and produced a dark German black bread. Feedback was great so I will start baking again in a couple of weeks. This one is not 100% rye this it contains some wheat flour.

This week there will be some bread available on the Great Oak Foods stall at this Friday’s Caersws Farmers market between 3 and 6 pm.

For orders please follow the directions on the right.

Many thanks,

PS. Cinema returns to Llanidloes this weekend with a showing of the Lego movie in the large function room next to the Old Mill from 3.30pm – this is part of the Flicks in the Sticks cinema project. Popcorn and ice creams + licensed bar
