Hand Delivered Goodness

About

Teacher turned baker Matt Townley grew up in North Wiltshire and hails from a big farming family of passionate home cooks. He now lives with his wife and daughter in Hale, continuing the tradition of food being at the centre of family life.

“After meeting my wife, Suze, we settled down in her hometown of Manchester. We have a four year old daughter Olivia and we moved to Hale, in the south of Greater Manchester, two years ago. In my spare time, I play rugby for my local team, Bowdon RUFC, spend time with my family, I work on my allotment and love to read, brew my own beers and cook for my family and friends.

Put simply, I love food and I love to cook. I have cooked pretty much every meal from scratch for the last ten years (but I won’t go into much detail about my diet of Pot Noodles and beans whilst at university). I am always looking for healthy, tasty meals that Suze and Olivia can enjoy. I love discovering foods from a particular region (at the moment I’m into the Near and Middle East) and I can turn my hand to most things.

I find cooking my favourite way to relax, and for me there is nothing better than serving something up for friends and family. I love taking my daughter to our allotment, and watching her enjoy how vegetables grow ready for the table. I find myself most at peace when I am cooking and preparing food; I love looking after people and enjoy watching others enjoying themselves.

I am an active dad and love watching my daughter grow, and have an incredible (and very hard-working) wife. I set up One Mile Bakery specifically for hard working people who would enjoy having a home-made meal delivered to their door once a week. The baking classes are a really fun, inspirational day away from the stresses of busy lives, and I’ll be uniting some of my passions in classes unique to OMB Hale – watch this space for my Bread & Beer course launching soon.

Thanks for a great day yesterday we both thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.  Nell kept saying at the end of the day how much she had enjoyed the whole thing.  A great experience.

How can I stop wasting bread?

Food waste has been talked about for generations. Today, the main driver for this is due to excessive consumption and its effect on global resources. In times past, it was used due to prevent excess merchant vessels taking perilous journeys in times of war. You don’t have to get on a soapbox about it though

Review of Bread & Beer Baking Class at OMB Hale

Given that they are two of my great passions, there was always going to be a Bread & Beer class when I launched One Mile Bakery Hale. This unique course celebrates both things, and explores the relationship between the two in a hands-on full-day class. Dan Doherty, who blogs as Manchester Food Tourist, came along

The One Mile Bakery – Hale – 25 April 2019 19:10

When respected PTs are saying this, you need to listen. Bread is not the enemy. Ultra-processed food is the enemy. Sourdough is just flour, water and salt. It’s about as clean a source of carbs as you’re going to find. . . . . #food #gymlife #altrincham #nutrition #photooftheday #healthyfood #body #healthylifestyle #realbread #instafit #weightlossjourney
