THE SIMPLE THINGS

Interview in the beautiful The Simple Things magazine about why and how I started OMB and the second phase of the business: mentoring others to run their own One Mile Bakery. The reach of this magazine is incredible – I had people from Australia and New Zealand getting in touch after they’d read this, wanting

OBSERVER FOOD MONTHLY

I’ve always been a huge fan of Observer Food Monthly – consistently the best weekend newspaper food supplement and a must-read in my house (aka OMB HQ). So, it was beyond thrilling to be featured in the magazine, in a long interview – over some baking, of course – with the brilliant Miranda Sawyer.   https://www.theguardian.com/lifeandstyle/2017/jun/18/how-baking-helped-save-my-life

WELSH COASTAL LIFE

Loved being invited to feature in the magazine’s Food Hero slot!    

THE SUNDAY TIMES

Honoured to be included in this list – in The Dish food magazine supplement in the Sunday Times – of 30 Best Bakeries in the UK. If someone had told me years ago, when I worked in the features section of the Scottish office of the Sunday Times, that I’d be appearing as a baker

TELEGRAPH

Thrilled to be included in this list of the top 20 bakeries in the UK, compiled by Diana Henry, one of my favourite food writers. I remember seeing this (they’d also used one of my beautiful bread photos on the masthead), high-fiving the OMB cat and dancing a jig around the kitchen. Yes, I was

STYLIST MAGAZINE

One of those super proud moments: my micro-bakery, in my Cardiff kitchen, included in Stylist Magazine *and* in the company of some of my favourite bakers across the UK. So, so chuffed to be in such esteemed company.  https://www.stylist.co.uk/life/recipes/the-uks-best-bakeries/38634

TRUE LOAF

One of the earliest pieces I wrote about how OMB came about and why I kept the scale so tiny. (In short: necessity, mother, invention). This is from True Loaf, the quarterly magazine of the brilliant Real Bread Campaign – their work is so vital, and they are a great support to micro-bakers. Their headline –

CARDIFF LIFE

This was the biggie: the editor of Cardiff Life came to review my brand new Breads of the World class. It was so new, I hadn’t actually road-tested it – slight panic when I realised he was bringing a photographer with him! We had a lovely class, with the usual mix of flour and laughs

THE GUARDIAN

Another of the turning-of-tables moments for me, early on in the One Mile Bakery adventure. Call from the new Cook section of The Guardian on Saturdays – would I like to be featured in their Meet the Producer feature? It was extra special, appearing in the paper I’d written for over so many years. Bit giddy, too,

BUZZ MAGAZINE

One of my very first reviews  – love the picture of my “proving stations” (aka kitchen table chairs). Buzz

WESTERN MAIL

My first big interview and the first time I wasn’t the journalist asking the questions! It felt very strange to be on the other side of the table…. I’ll never forget seeing this on the day of publication and then checking my website and email – both were struggling to cope with the enquiries, subscriptions

OMB deliveries are a little weekly luxury that lift the spirits. Most of the time I’m rushing round after small boys – on OMB night I stop and savour that bread and soup, because they’re worth it. Plus it’s a night where I don’t have to think about what to get for supper!
