Today a baker called Tom Baker opened an awesome community bakery on Stirchley high street. Here is Tom (and, I believe, Dom).
I'm happy to say I was first customer through the door.
That the sourdough I bought was very tasty and toasts well.
That the Victoria sponge made with Cannon Hill Park blackberries was delicious. (I love the conflicted look on this woman's face as she views the cakes.)
That the kitchen looks fantastic – I'd love to do a bread-making course here.
That THAT'S A LOTTA NUTS! (Ha! Snuck a Kung Pow reference in there)
More importantly, it's great to have a reason to head down to Stirchley high street again. I hope everyone will make this new venture an ongoing success.
Use your Loaf – keep Stirchley
In other Stirchley wordplay news, I can recommend the NHS dentist a little further up the high street from Tom Baker the baker. She's a dentist called Mrs Bridge.
