Born and Bread

September 3, 2011

A reminder that as of Thursday, Leicester Born and Bread is now up and trading and providing handmade, small-batch bread for the Leicester masses.  Jessica has now added prices to the website and is also now using organic flour from the Whissendine windmill in Rutland.  You can pick up the likes of a small white sandwich loaf for just £1, half a dozen cheese and spring onion rolls for £3.50 or a herb fougasse for £2.50.

Jessica from Leicester Born and Bread

I’ve been following my friend Jessica’s Facebook posts as she’s been trying out various adventurous  bread recipes. What I hadn’t realised was that she was preparing to launch herself on the Leicester public as our latest artisan breadmaking business. Leicester Born and Bread – do you see what she’s doing there?- is offering handmade, preservative-free loaves on a local basis. Heck if you live in the West End of Leicester she might even drop it round by bike.

As a committed vegetarian Jessica  might miss out on some of life’s great pleasures, but it does mean bread – good bread, healthy bread – is especially important to her.   Hence she’s developed a really exciting  product range which will complement many different meals – from everyday white or wholemeal loaves to speciality breads such as rosemary and sundried tomato soda bread, pumpernickel and sesame and chilli cornbread. Sweeter options such as courgette and walnut loaf are also available.  Jessica uses Doves Farm organic flour.

I don’t think she officially starts trading for a couple  of weeks,  so in the meantime,  take a look at the lovely website – – and start thinking about what you might fancy ordering.
