Terrible London (UK) bakeries...
....are all over my parts.
I've not had much luck with those recommended by the Real Bread campaign. Some of the bread I've bought have really shocked/peeved me off equally.
£3-4 for a sourdough that's worse than mine (my SD is not actually bad!)? Just because it's organic and real. Do not know what's up with that.
Most days I love to bake bread. Some days I like to buy bread and take a day off.
Now I've heard of many good bakeries, such as the E5 Bakehouse and Old Post Office bakery. I don't mean chains such as Gails, Paul's or le pain quotidienne.
What are your favourite loaves worth paying for at which bakeries? I never hear of small, local bakeries.
