Bread In Common at BCB – bake list for Fri 3 and Sat 4 Nov

It’s our last week running the cafe at the British Ceramics Biennial. We’ve had a blast over the past five weeks, and we’re for one last time selling delicious real bread over the counter from noon on Friday and Saturday. So if you’ve not made it to the BCB yet then make sure you catch it, and us this weekend.

We are baking…


Lancashire Parkin 55g £1.00 A warm ginger spiced traditional sweet cake made with dark treacle and oatmeal – a Halloween and Bonfire Night treat. It’s rib sticking goodness will fill a space in the dark days of late autumn (V). 4 for £2.50.


Ale and Walnut Loaf 600g a dark loaf with wheat and rye flours and bottled stout ales sourced through local craft beer purveyors Bottlecraft

Fig and Fennel Loaf 600g A perennial favourite with two flavours that combine brilliantly V+ £2.20

Golden Brown Loaf 800g Straightforward brown loaf made with 75% golden wholegrain and 25% strong white organic flour. V+ £2.00

Old Fashioned White 800g A not completely white split tin loaf, made using a 12 hour proof for a deeper bread flavour (V+)  £2.00 

Staffs Oaty Loaf 600g Baked with white and wholemeal organic bread flours with creamy oatmeal, and shot through with sunflower, pumpkin, and linseed seeds for a good crunch (V+) £2.30 – so yes, our Cob but in a tin!

Focaccia  300g Our version of the Italian classic  with a variety of toppings – some (V) some (V+)  £1.50. See photo above!


We are running the cafe at the British Ceramics Biennial for the next six weeks, so we will have over-the-counter sales of bread from 12 noon on every Friday and Saturday. When the bread is gone it’s gone, so get there sooner rather than later. Cash or cards.
