Jane and Martin and all the staff at Joe’s Bakery thank you – our customers – for your support and we wish you all a very Merry Christmas.

We are pleased to have the new and fabulous cook book available for customers to purchase from the shop.

The book features Joe’s Bakery and many other wonderful local food favourites, and makes a perfect present idea for your foodie friends, or the perfect self present!

Panettone and Stollen preparations are well under way and will be available in the shop from Monday 2nd December.

The Glos Rd Central Christmas Street Party and late night shopping is coming up on Thursday 5th December from 5pm.

Flours from FWP Matthews

We stock some fabulous flours from FWP Matthews, including their organic Cotswold Crunch and Pizza Flour which are new to our range.

New Products

We have 3 new products to whet your appetite –

Lemon Streusel Twist – a bun swirled with lemon filling and a butter crumble topping;

Yorkshire Parkin – a vegan version of this traditional ginger spiced cake; made with medium oatmeal for a ‘nutty’ texture;

Bostock – Almond – a slice of brioche brushed with an orange syrup, topped with almond frangipane and sliced almonds then baked (currently available on Fridays and Saturdays only).

Introduction to Bread Making

There are still a couple of tickets left at the fabulous Vale House Kitchen for Martin’s Introduction to Bread Making course on December 1st.

Please visit https://valehousekitchen.co.uk/course/introduction-bread-making-011219/ for more information and to book.

Compostable Bags Update

Now that the bags have been in use for a couple of weeks we have had some feedback from our customers. Most of this has been very positive but several customers have noted that the bread does not keep long enough for their requirements. If this is the case please ask for your sliced bread to be put in the old-style polythene bags (we have some stock which will last quite a while).

It’s Sourdough September!

Sourdough is not just about toast and your favourite spread or conserve – try it with smashed avocado and egg, or create a savoury sandwich of your choosing.

Have you tried our Fruited Sourdough? It’s more delicious than a toasted tea cake and wonderful with some mature cheese.

*free* sourdough starter is available from us – please come in before 1pm if you’d like some.
