Hand Delivered Goodness

Testimonials

Inspirational, educational and great fun. Matt really knows his bread and we had a great day both learning about and baking sourdough loaves. I went along as it was a birthday gift, and I thoroughly recommend this to everyone searching for that elusive present.

Loved the celeriac soup. Think it’s  the first time Oliver has ever had celeriac and he ate every last spoonful... absolutely delicious. Bread was fab too! 5 stars.
We had it eaten 30 mins after you delivered it, just getting around to telling you now!
Oliver normally had a meal in the car on a Wednesday going from school to the gym and then to his tennis lesson. Now he gets a snack to bide him over till 7.45pm till we get home. He always looks at his snack and says, “ Oh great, it’s soup and bread night”.
Not sure what that says about my cooking but a compliment for you!

Had a fabulous day and arrived home with loads of festive fare!

It is absolutely hands on – you do everything just with some great guidance from the expert baker. The course covers three loaves – a white farmhouse, a French Pain de Campagne and a wholemeal loaf. Matt encourages you to add your own flair to each – with an array of delicious ‘extra’ ingredients available to add to the loaves; poppy, chia seeds or sunflower seeds, olives and sun-dried tomatoes, dried fruits or chopped nuts. You can even add grated cheese or pieces of pancetta to really pimp things up when you bake them again in the creative comfort of your own kitchen! And that’s precisely the point. I can’t wait to bake bread again now. And I feel absolutely confident that I will be able to do it. And do it well. The smell in that kitchen – honestly, it was divine. When the loaves came out and were cooling, we sat in the living room and Matt recommended his favourite books for baking. A great touch with was very helpful indeed. I have been to a fair few cookery classes in my time but this one was, by far, the best. The tips I have picked up on, the newfound confidence, the way it has made me appreciate homemade baking so much more. I don’t want to buy or eat a mass-produced loaf of sliced bread ever again!

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.

I love the idea of getting real bread and chutney delivered to my door by bicycle. It reminds me of a gentler and happier world.
Jim Ross
Exceptional.. I cannot give it anymore higher praise than that on the quality of the order I had. Thank You.
Mark Shiel
Superb speed of service only exceeded by the quality of produce. Delicious loaves and authentic chutneys to partner with my picnics this summer. YOM!
Mark Freeman
My husband and I had a fantastic day with Matt learning how to bake three delicious varieties of bread. From almost complete beginners we now have the confidence to have a go ourselves. Thanks Matt for a really fun and informative day. I highly recommend a bread-making class with OMB Hale!

I attended the sourdough bread making day last Friday. Not knowing what to expect and never baked a loaf of bread before I was a bit nervous to say the least. I needn’t have worried one bit, Matt was very welcoming and had tea and coffee ready on arrival. He explained what the day would consist of in great detail. He soon put me and the other 5 in the group at ease. We sampled great food, made fantastic bread, yes even me! Cookies and flat breads. I will def be going back to do another day. Thank you Matt it was great.

I bought our son a bake at home set for Christmas as he loves cooking. He has successfully made a beautiful white loaf, which was so tasty the children ate it all for supper! The service from One Mile Bakery was fab, thanks again.

"ONE MILE BAKERY HALE – BEST THING SINCE SLICED…WELL, YOU KNOW." I’ve done a cookery class only once before. We all awkwardly stood round in a steel compound (industrial kitchen), nobody speaking, everybody giving each other’s pizza topping choices side-eye, followed by the most awkward lunch in living history as 20 of us ate our ‘masterpieces’ in silence. The One Mile Bakery class I attended felt less lesson and more ‘get together and lunch with friends’. The classes are held at the also very lovely home of Matt Townley, and right from the off I was made to feel less student, more friend invited over for lunch and a spot of baking. Matt has a very natural ease about him, supporting and encouraging his company that all are bakers in the making and it’s all about following your instincts. I also wish to point out that if you’re lucky enough to get on Matt’s delivery route, all packaging is 100% plastic free – delivery bags, soup containers and garnish pots are not only totally recyclable but 100% compostable too.

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.

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
