Hummingbird Bakery is now Open!
Yes... just a little later in the day than I meant to list them, but nevertheless, bread is now available at my online shop, here in the bakery section!
You'll be able to find French baguettes and French brioche as part of my Fabulously French Range, Rustic White Bread as part of my new Best of British Range and Pumpernickel bread as part of my new Glorious German Range.
Unsure what some of these world breads are? Brioche is a French specialty bread / pastry. It's made in the same basic way as bread but is richer because egg is added to the mixture. It's also glazed with egg yolk which gives it a slightly shiny finish.
... Historical fact of the day: Marie Antoinette was told that the poor had no bread and her actual response was "Let them eat brioche" not "Let them eat cake". :)
Pumpernickel bread is a type of rye bread with a fabulous chocolate colour and it's been made in Germany for hundreds of years.
