SOME ARE BORN GREAT, SOME ACHIEVE GREATNESS, AND SOME HAVE GREATNESS KNEADED INTO THEM IN THE SMALL HOURS OF THIS MORNING.
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 Matthews flour we use is local to us in Oxfordshire 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 and croissants.
From humble beginnings we believe, greatness comes.
You can take away our Bakergirl breads, pastries, scones and buns – or you can stay a while, eat in and relax with our house roast coffee or loose-leaf teas, in our refurbished 200 year old barn. We take our coffee as seriously as our bread, with each one created for you from our wood-roasted artisan coffee on our La Marzocco.
Bakergirl is more than just a bakery, so why not stop and soak up the surroundings.
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 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.
Despite a complete career change, the passion didn’t waiver and here we are making the leap – bringing Bakergirl to life in its own bakehouse.
From time to time we will hold events and classes at Bakergirl, details of which we will post.
Out of our normal opening hours we are available for corporate hire and have plenty of space.
