Is it just older people like me who say ‘hasn’t this year gone quickly?’ We are nearly at the end of November and starting to get ready for Christmas. This has been a lovely year for us so far. We have welcomed two new bakers – Giovanni and Tony, both Italian bakers and both highly skilled bringing with them new ideas and helping us to broaden our range of breads.
Thank you for the nominations and of course votes for The World Bread Awards – we were delighted to win numerous awards and particularly thrilled to win the People’s Choice category which meant so much to all our staff, who work so hard all year to try and offer not only really great breads, cakes and patisserie but also the very best customer service and experience we can.
Christmas is always a special time at the Bakery, it is lovely to welcome all our friends to join in the celebrations and preparations for the big day. We of course will be making beautiful Christmas cakes, mince pies, our Brioche Advent rings as well as delicious puddings to help your family celebrations. Do call in and see what we are making and if you would like to pre order your Christmas bread and cakes collect an order form.
The bakery will be open on Christmas Eve although not the Tea Rooms because that is where we pack the numerous Christmas orders ready to collect from 11.00. The bakers will bake through the night so we can help make your Christmas special.
As well as the baked goods we make we have in stock plenty of other treats to help the festive season from cheeses, pickles, chutneys which are great to have in the store cupboard at home but also make lovely gifts. We all know plenty of people who have pretty much everything they need but foodie gifts are very well received so we will be making Christmas hampers for those difficult to buy for friends and relations.
Another ever popular gift idea are vouchers for our Bakery Courses which take place twice a month through the year. There are courses suitable for those who have never made bread before and the Master Class is more suited to home bakers with some experience – 95.00 per person per day. We can also offer vouchers for Afternoon Tea in our Tea Room – from 16.50 per person.
Looking forward to seeing you soon
Jane, Nick and all the staff at Mayfield Farm Bakery
