The Baker’s Dozen Birthday

We’re celebrating our Baker’s Dozen Birthday this summer, marking 13 years since we first fired up our ovens in Hampstead. We’ll be kicking off with a weekend of celebrations on 7th & 8th July in the bakery, so be sure to pop along and celebrate with us. We’re excited to give away 13 golden tickets for a year’s supply of bread. Winners will be randomly selected from our mailing list, from competition posts on social media and by entering on our website. Enter here. 

A birthday isn’t a birthday without cake, so to celebrate we’re baking two of our favourite cakes in miniature form with a limited edition birthday cake box.

In reflecting on the last 13 years we’ve also chosen our 13 favourite bakes, including our Cinnamon Bun, Brownie Finger and, of course, French Dark Sourdough. Order online.

“It must be a celebration of bread.” Our founder, Tom, talks about why our 13th birthday feels special.

Flower Arranging with Freddie’s Flowers in Putney

Freddie’s Flowers was founded by Freddie Garland (his actual name) in 2014. Freddie’s on a mission to share the soul-lifting joy that glorious, seasonal flowers bring. They deliver a different arrangement of exciting fresh flowers each week, straight from the grower to your door. You have the fun of arranging your flowers, with helpful tips from Freddie to guide you along the way

Join us and Freddie’s Flowers for an evening of flower arranging, freshly baked nibbles and wine in our Putney bakery on 9th May 2018 from 7pm.

The Freddie’s Flowers team will teach you how to create the perfect bouquet, with styling and flower care tips too, and you’ll get to take your arrangement home with you.

Tickets are complementary and there are only a limited number of spaces available, so email us if you’d like to come along.

In the meantime, check out Freddie’s Flowers Instagram for bloom inspiration.

We are collaborating with eco pop-up, Canteen No.4, to create The Waste Series at our Bloomsbury bakery on 11th – 12th April.

With sustainability at their core, Canteen No.4 is a London based eco pop-up that aims to collaborate with emerging creatives and artisans to cast light on environmental issues within the food chain.

On the theme of waste, this April, Canteen No.4 will be creating a four course meal, shared around one table. The menu will be created using surplus food from our bakeries and suppliers, accompanied by discussions on the subject of waste from the producers. A percentage of proceeds will be donated to a London based food waste charity to help tackle the on going fight against food waste in the city.
