Bread and cheese at Sandon

Our display at Sandon market last Saturday.  Hot Cross buns went like, well, hot cakes/buns and we sold out of some of the cheeses too.  Bread still available each Saturday at The Cheeseplate in Buntingford and we are back at Fowlmere 13 April and Sandon on 20th.  Have a great Easter.

Made these buns for the two markets we did on Saturday: Fowlmere and Bassingbourn.  First time we have done two in one day and sold out at both.  Made these heart decorated ‘Not Cross Buns’ and they didn’t even reach the table before being sold!  There were some traditional Hot Cross Buns too as well as our usual range including pesto swirls and spiced apple buns.  Will make more Not/Hot Cross Buns for Sandon market this Saturday as well as having some bread rings with Camembert and Reblochon which make a different starter or lunch; the bread is part baked so the cheese is placed in the centre and baked, with the bread for 15 minutes.

Not and Hot Cross Buns!

Bread from Royston Ladies Circle!

Last night eleven young ladies from the local Royston Ladies Circle were here watching a demo of plaiting, swirling and other bread making techniques.  Then it was hands on with some very impressive results: spiced apple and pesto swirls, 4 plait loaves, knot rolls, bread shots and fougasse.  All turned out brilliantly and we enjoyed the evening as much as the ladies.

We got some great comments including:

“What a wonderful evening!  Great fun for a group of friends.  Great value for money”

“Really relaxed and informal evening”


“I learned so much.  I cant wait to try making bread at home”

“Fantastic evening with some great produce!.  Very proud of what a bunch of novices could achieve with the right guidance”
