In one sense, there are no mysteries to how we make our macaroons. Our craft bakers create them from the same three ingredients used in medieval times: ground almonds, sugar and egg whites. The real secret comes with adding the fourth ingredient. Despite being invisible, it’s the most vital one of all.

Spring is now definitely here with the mornings getting lighter and the weather getting warmer. The trees that we planted back in November are now starting to have buds on and are getting some leaves. The first Bluebells are starting to open up and summer is only a light breeze away. It is a great time of year with everything feeling fresh and born again ready for the new season.
As bakers, breadmaking is at the heart of our craft so a great deal of love (and early morning starts) went into creating these breads. We hope you enjoy tasting these loaves as much as we enjoy baking them.
