Bread Ahead have really gone the extra mile during lockdown, and now they’ve unveiled a fab new scheme.
First, there were Instagram live baking sessions, and then there was a brilliant e-cookbook that they launched for the nominal fee of £5. Now, Bread Ahead are helping amateur bakers across the capital with the reveal of an online delivery service, stuffed full of baking essentials and sweet treats. Really, it’s everything you knead and more…
Four different kits are available, each with myriad delights to get stuck into. The Essentials Box will set you back £30, and includes two large sourdough loaves, six brioche rolls, six crossaints, four Pain au Chocolat, and 2kg of flour and yeast for your own baking attempts. Those who’ve hopped all over the sourdough trend can opt for the Sourdough Selection, which has five sourdough loaves, one brioche loaf, and 2kg of flour. Given how scarce flour has been in the supermarkets recently, it could end up being the most valuable part of this box!
Good as they are at bread, Bread Ahead are justifiably famous for their cakes and legendary doughnuts, for which you’ll need the Sweet Treats box. Starting from £6, these can be filled with doughnuts, brownie traybakes, ginger cakes, banana cakes, hot cross buns, and brioche rolls, in quantities decided by you. There will be absolutely no judgement from Secret London if you opt for a box of doughnuts, rest assured.
Of course, if you’d like to get a little more hands-on, Bread Ahead’s Baker’s Kit – full of bread, self-raising, and rye flour, fresh yeast, and a rye starter dough – should do the trick. It’ll have you properly prepared for their daily Instagram tutorials, too. Bread Ahead will deliver across central London (check if you fall within the delivery zone here), and all deliveries will be contactless. Check out the full range on their website, and then scoff to your heart’s content!
