Keeping it local

This morning we had a lovely stroll through our village. It was bitterly cold, the sun was shining but we had a purpose. Our destination was this….

B:ox is a relatively new, local bakery, only open Saturday mornings. It opens at 8am and closes when the bread is all sold, usually by around 10am. You have to be quick! The few people we saw around the village at 8.15 were either on their way to or from the bakery. Word is spreading fast and it’s becoming a weekly ritual for a lot of the locals.
When I say bakery, it’s actually the basement of their house.

The bread is sold from a little outbuilding in their garden. The set-up is lovely.

B:ox is the love child of a local man. He’s been a professional chef for 30 years, whose cv includes culinary director for the 2010 Asian games and then for the 2012 London Olympics! It’s his true passion in life to produce REAL bread with no additives to the local community.

We made our selections, I could easily have bought more but I’ll wait till next Saturday. On our way home we popped into our local butchers too. He makes some gorgeous sausages. We often get some ready for breakfast on a Sunday morning. Yummy!

We are extremely lucky to have these local independent businesses on our doorstep and we all need to support them. You come away with a warm, wholesome, organic feeling and it’s nice.

Back at home I unpacked our baked goodies, a Rosemary flatbread, a brioche loaf and a sour dough loaf. Mmmm, they smell amazing. Time for that first and best cuppa of the day while my hubby makes my breakfast. Very nice it was too!

Happy weekend everyone xxx
