Real Bread Week 2020 – News featuring Planet Leicester Bakers

We are delighted to be celebrating Real Bread Week 2020. This week Planet Leicester Bakers is featured on the Real Bread Campaign website. The focus this year is the many real bread bakers around the country who are using good bread to do good things. And I’m delighted that Planet Leicester Bakers has been asked to share the work being done here!

This isn’t the only news for this year’s celebration though.

And today, Tuesday 25th February, saw mention of Planet Leicester Bakers with a quote in the UK national broadsheet newspaper, The Telegraph. Tome Morrissy-Swan wrote about the therapeutic potential of bread making, interviewing a number of bakers, including Kitty Tait, pictured. Planet Leicester Bakers commented that unlike cake baking, a loaf of bread can come out of the oven looking ‘wonky’ and people and the baker will still be amazed and delighted by what has been produced, helping to build confidence.
