REAL ARTISAN BAKERS
Real bread has humble beginnings, using just four simple ingredients – flour, water, sea salt and time.
For us at Bakergirl, it’s all about the slow.
We are passionate about leaving our breads to rise in their own time, so they are better for you and we use no artificial flavours or additives.
The flour we use is local to us as are many of our seasonal fresh ingredients.
We knead and shape all our breads by hand – from our sourdoughs and specialty breads, through to farmhouse tins croissants and buns.
From humble beginnings we believe, greatness comes.
Having moved out of London several years ago, we couldn’t find any real bread in the area, something we took for granted living in the city. So we started to make our own.
A chance course with an artisan baker became the lightbulb moment, from which all foundations were built and once we were on the path, there was no stopping us. Inspired by the amazing work of the Real Bread campaign and encouraged by friends and neighbours, before we knew it, we were baking to order.
We established our micro home bakery and catered for an ever-expanding list of loyal customers who bought our breads and pastries every week. The crazy hours, tiny oven, the search for the best ingredients, obsessing over baking techniques on YouTube all helped on a journey honing our breadmaking skills.
Through everything the passion didn’t waiver for baking real breads, pastries and buns and four years ago we made the leap, bringing Bakergirl to life.
Bakergirl has moved into a bespoke bakehouse HQ in Wroxton, a short drive away from our coffee shop in Great Tew.
We deliver our bakes from here as they leave the oven. We also occasionally hold events and classes from this location too.
Our bread and viennoiserie are all delivered fresh from the oven each morning…
