A baker called Tom Baker…

Stirchley Stores & Loaf-4

Today a baker called Tom Baker opened an awesome community bakery on Stirchley high street. Here is Tom (and, I believe, Dom).

There's also a cookery school and a community shop on site. Check out Loaf and Stirchley Stores for more info.

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 interesting weird.

Full set of launch day pictures are up on my Flickr, under Stirchley Village. More Stirchley stories are here.

And finally…

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.

One thought on “A baker called Tom Baker…”

  1. Awesome to see such a brilliant venture. Oh and the bread is so, so, good. The kitchen is so tastefull, well I have the same units…. The only down side? I don't live in Stirchley. The drive from Bearwood goes against my food miles, using car, policy. But the bread is worth it.
