Started by the Real Bread Campaign ‘Sourdough September’ is held every year to celebrate the skill of making bread the ‘old fashioned way’ using natural yeast found in flour .This is simply mixed with water and fermented to create a starter which replaces commercial dried yeast.  At Secretts we have started to sell a lot more yeast and flour than we did before lockdown so we thought we would celebrate a return to home baking. For those of you for whom baking is not your thing we sell a great range of sourdough and slow-dough breads so come and try what we have on offer. Great tasting bread needs time to slowly ferment and develop a great flavour. We have plenty to offer in store delivered fresh every day.We will be giving out samples from Wednesday – Sunday in September.
