Welcome to One Mile Bakery Hale

***Due to the Covid-19 pandemic and following government guidance, all baking classes with Matt at One Mile Bakery Hale have been postponed until further notice. Gift vouchers remain valid for future bookings and are still for sale via the website as normal – we have extended their validity to 18 months.***

Hi, my name is Matt Townley. Put simply, I love baking, I love good food and I love to cook for my family and friends – I come from a big farming family of passionate home cooks. When I was younger I was told by a very wise person: “If you want to show somebody that you really love them, cook them a good meal”. I have always lived by this mantra.

One Mile Bakery Hale is all about the joy of delivering delicious homemade, handmade food from my kitchen within my mile and teaching inspirational baking classes so you can bake amazing bread at home to share with the people you love.

AM I IN THE MILE?

We deliver one mile from our location in Hale

Matt started deliveries within his mile in May 2018, taking amazing homemade bread, soup and preserves by bike to addresses near his home in Hale. Deliveries are weekly, on Wednesdays (5.30-7.30pm) to local subscribers – this is the only way to get OMB bread!

Subscriptions run for a month (four deliveries) or three months (twelve deliveries) and celebrate the very best partners for handmade bread, using stunning local, seasonal produce.

Each week brings something different, so a subscription offers a chance to sample a wide range of artisan breads, seasonal soups and stunning preserves. It’s all handmade at home, and delivered to you at home in person. The FAQ page gives more information about how it all works. Do follow me on social media for updates, sign up for my newsletter or drop me an email and I’ll be in touch with more information.

Thanks so much for a superb class! The gift voucher was the best birthday present ever and it was great I could choose the class I wanted to do – always loved French bread on holidays and now I can make the classics at home. The croissants vanished with coffee the morning after the class! Merci beaucoup for hosting us so well – great to meet everyone and chat over that lovely lunch.

We create a biga every night before we bake. This is an Italian pre-ferment that adds extra leavening power to the dough, and more importantly adds a delicious malty depth of flavour. 🍞 Ours is a 54% hydration, with 1% yeast. Eg – for every 100g of flour, 54g of water and 1g yeast. 🍞
