Food: Rose Prince’s Pocket Bakery

Fancy going to food writer and cook Rose Prince’s house and helping yourself to some of her family’s freshly baked bread? Now, you can – every Saturday morning in fact, when her kitchen becomes the tiny but glorious Pocket Bakery, selling loaves made by Prince and her two children, Jack and Lara. The bread is delicious, entirely handmade, baked on stones, full of flavour, and worth travelling for. It comes in three varieties, white and a light rye sourdough and a fruit loaf, keeps long, freezes well, makes great toast, and is as fresh as can be (batches come out of the oven throughout the morning). You can reserve an order by telephone or e-mail (and it’s best to do so), or just stop by. You’ll find the house by following your nose.
