Following the phenomenal response to the first One Mile Bakery in Cardiff, with a long waiting list for deliveries and huge demand for our baking classes, we want to bring the unique OMB experience to many more of you. A network of brilliant bakers and teachers are setting up their own One Mile Bakeries in locations across the UK. Each will deliver delicious homemade bread, soup and preserves by bike to subscribers within a mile of their kitchen and teach inspirational baking classes.
Tadcaster: Located in the heart of the Golden Triangle, Tadcaster is famed for its breweries, gorgeous scenery and its accessibility to the amazing foodie cities and towns of York, Leeds and Harrogate. Teacher Phil Gostling delivers amazing bread, soup, preserves and - a first for OMB - sweet bakes to lucky subscribers in his mile. Baking classes run from January 2020, with some great new classes, and these are open for bookings now.
Paulton: Becky Mears lives in the heart of the West Country in a small town called Paulton, nestled neatly between Bath and Bristol and perfectly placed for lots of fabulous local flavours from the rolling Somerset countryside.
Pontardawe: Lesley & Mike Lloyd are newly settled in Pontardawe, realising their dream of opening a One Mile Bakery. They are our first OMB duo, and our second OMB in gorgeous Wales, so these really are VIBs (Very Important Bakers). They deliver in their mile on a Wednesday evening by electric trike and teach amazing, friendly and fun classes at home.
Hale: Teacher turned baker Matt Townley opened the first OMB in the north-west in 2018, delivering amazing loaves, soups and preserves by bike in Hale on Wednesday evenings and teaching brilliant baking courses in his kitchen.
Exeter: After a successful career in the world of the arts, Boudicca Woodland now relishes a different challenge with her trademark passion and creativity, bringing OMB deliveries to her vibrant and much-loved community of St Thomas each Tuesday and teaching fantastic baking classes in her micro-bakery at home.
Cardiff: Professional rugby player turned baker Nick Macleod is bringing amazing bread to a whole new Cardiff mile in Rhiwbina, where he grew up and has now returned to with his young family. He also teaches inspirational baking classes around his micro-bakery table at home.
We are working with other home bakers right now, helping them set up their own bakery in their community, and teaching them how to run brilliant baking classes. Would you like to have a One Mile Bakery in your area? If the idea of homemade bread, soup and jam delivered to your door appeals, or you’d be interested in a local venue offering great value, inspirational baking classes let us know!
