The Bakery Bulletin | Vol. 7

The Ides of March gets a bad rap.

Brighter skies ahead.

Did you know that the origin of the phrase 'the ides of March' wasn't intended to be associated with bad omens at all? Ides refers to the first full moon in any given month and, in fact, was often seen in March to signify the beginning of the new year, and a time for new beginnings and celebration.

Something to remember, perhaps, especially this March in this year.

New Limited Editions are here

The news you've all been waiting for - the next drop of Limited Edition blends.

Coming out of the bakery this month are three gorgeous granolas, inspired - as ever - by the seasons, and the best homegrown ingredients we can find;

Honey & Sumac; Inspired by sweet and sour flavour pairings of the Middle East, and created to celebrate Persian New Year

Date & Walnut; A classic combination, with a satisfyingly crisp oat cluster base and the occasional clump of chewy dates.

Sweet & Salty Miso Apple; An umami-lovers dream, and - even better - our miso paste is made from Hodmedod's British-grown fava beans!

These Limited Editions are now available from the website, or direct from the bakery. Enjoy!

584 mile Granola

In quite exciting stockist news, we've made it to Moray!

Nestled in the north-west of Scotland above the Cairngorms, 584 miles from our Bermondsey bakery, is Macbeth's Butchers and the Edinvale Farm Shop - a family-run butchers, game dealer and (separate) farm shop, and winners of our unofficial 'Northern-most Stockist' Award.

We remain bowled over and beaming to see our products in your stores, and even more delighted to know that we're popping up across the country.

You can find our (quite fun) Stockist map here, and - if you know a farm shop, corner store or cafe that might benefit from a little H&H - feel free to give them our metaphorical number!

Peeking behind the Curtain

Have you taken a look through our Journal yet? We've given her a kick-start of late, and have a back catalogue of recipes and articles for you to get stuck into.

Interested in why we aren't, and won't, have Organic certification? Perhaps you'd like to know what goes into choosing the perfect oats? Or maybe you're just looking for a Spring salad recipe. Either which way, do stop by if you have five minutes; it makes for perfect coffee break reading.

We hope you're all doing well, enjoying the occasional glimpse of sunshine, and tucking into some tasty meals.

Brighter days are coming.
