Setting up the One Mile Bakery Paulton has been a bit of a whirlwind and yesterday was no exception.
The lovely Alex Lloyd Jenkins came to take some pictures of my blossoming home bakery for the website and social media (watch this space) and we laughed probably far more than one should during a normal working day; I had my first glimpse of the draft pictures this morning that confirm this, full of grins and belly laughs.
Elisabeth came along too and helped me to get some really great pictures that attempt to capture OMB Paulton, my kitchen and me as best as possible, it’s really eye-opening having people in your home who see things with a fresh eye. One of the images was of a chart of the kids heights, something that doesn’t scream ‘bakery’ but really represents my home and me – here’s a sneak peak…
I have five children <gulp> yup, you read that correctly and they inspire me daily. They are my Chief Tasters and don’t mince their words if a new bake is not up to par. They are a mixture of carnivores, veggies and a vegan, so I have to mix it up a bit and try to keep everyone happy. There is a real joy in creating a vegan or plant-based bake that tastes just like the bakes we are so used to but without any animal products. I’ve devised a Vegan Baking class for anyone who would like to learn a little more.
It’s a real pleasure to share my home and my kitchen with others, we worked hard designing a lovely space for our family and to open it up for classes is, in equal measures, nerve-wracking and exciting. The photos really do showcase the space well and Alex has done a great job of capturing what OMB is all about. I will share more images when they are ready, until then, check out my classes and let’s make a plan for you to pop by for a visit.
