Planet Leicester Bakers is delighted to have been invited to team up with multi-award winning Gelato Village in Leicester for their unique Gelato Bites event on February 21st.

Gelato Village: The finest Italian gelato in the land!

Gelato Village: The finest Italian gelato in the land!

Gelato Village makes and sells the most amazing real Italian gelato, using the finest ingredients. The founders originate from Turin and inspired Planet Leicester Bakers to join the Slow Food Movement last year.  They are committed to the local community and to promoting excellent quality local food. Like Planet Leicester Bakers, The Bee Farmer’s honey is used and sold by them as well. Laura from Gelato Village, explained about the new Gelato Bites events:

“Our Gelato Bites events are a series of talks and tastings with local producers and suppliers showing excellence in ingredient production and artisan food creation in the city and county.”

February’s event will be very exciting as it offers a ‘Flavour Off’ between gelato and bread! The two businesses have challenged each other to use chosen flavour combinations to produce their gelato and bread.  The guests will then decide which form they prefer the flavours in!

Tickets are a snip at £10, including tasting. The event starts at 6pm at Gelato Village. Visit the ticket site HERE for more info and to buy your tickets – be quick as they are limited and already being snapped up!

Promoting Togetherness with a ‘Loaf of Love’

In these troubled times, is there someone near you who is maybe feeling a little less safe just now?  Small actions of togetherness can mean a lot.

” Feeling powerless last Monday, so did what I can do – baked a ‘Loaf of Love’ for our Polish neighours. They are worried, so are we. My partner and I said when we popped by with our offering that we are horrified by what is happening in the country. I cried. Their little girls liked the heart. #‎Togetherness‬ 

Loaf of Love

PS: They’ve said it was delicious!

Local honey in local bread for local people

By | news | No Comments

People who’ve worked with me  over the years probably know how much I value a bit of collaboration.  There is so much to be gained from teaming up in any way possible, big or small, with like-minded folk who share your ambitions.  And especially those working in different areas with different skills who make you look at things a little, well, differently.
