I have ordered the following from Minton’s Good Food my usual supplier http://www.mintonsgoodfood.net for delivery this Thursday (23rd). Additional baking items (doing food items separately) needed in next couple of days.

25kg  ‘local’ wholemeal (Tybalt grown just up the road) softer but good flavour
25kg wholemeal rye
Probably some Amaretto and naked oats if they have them in time.
12.5kg spelt

I can supply buckets of starter but I don’t know anything about yeast. Geraint is bringing bakers yeast – what else do we need?

Emily is bringing a pound of SAF Gold (dry) yeast that’s meant for sweet doughs (chocolate bread, brioche, &c).

Place requests in the Comments box below and I’ll add the to this text.

    Hi. Sorry, I just posted this on the “Progress” thread, but think it might be better off here, so I’m copying it below:

    Hi all.

    Mick, the items you’ve listed sound great. I would like there to be raisins, walnuts and sun-dried tomatoes and perhaps olives (I’m not an olive lover, but others might be)? I also agree with the items Ben’s listed. Spelt would be good, but only if enough people are interested to make it worthwhile getting some in addition to wholemeal. As for herbs, maybe chives too?

    I will certainly be baking with yeast, so it would be great to have some fresh yeast around (but I’m afraid I can’t help on sourcing the fresh stuff). It might also be useful to get in some more general baking ingredients: cream, bicarb, baking powder, plain flour, sugar (perhaps a mix of varieties: caster, brown, muscovado etc), eggs, unsalted butter (and maybe a hard-fat vegetarian alternative?), salt, vegetable, sunflower, or groundnut oil and honey all spring to mind. That should allow for some cake baking, and enriched and fruit doughs, which I hope to play around with.

    Non-stick baking parchment and cling film too.

    I’m going to be coming via quite a roundabout route with one stage being by bicycle and train, so I’m not sure how much I’ll be able to bring. I will try and find enough room for some mixing bowls and loaf tins, and I can bring an (opened) bag of malt powder and a jar of malt extract.

    Sorry if that seems a lot; but I remember us having most of that sort of stuff available before. Will we need things like tins of chopped tomatoes for the meals?

    Looking forward to it!

    Jack

  2. I should be able get hold of fresh yeast, in 1kg blocks. How many will we need?
    I would personally prefer to make sourdough breads & would especially like to make some sweet/enriched sourdoughs as I’ve not been satisfied with my results in this area so far.
    Obviously things start getting expensive when butter, eggs, fruit, sugar, chocolate, etc are added to the list , especially as I’m sure we all like using quality ingredients. So that we don’t hugely overorder on expensive/perishable items, do we need a firmer plan for enriched baking?
    I can access Suma wholesale http://sumawholesale.com/index.php/ if there’re any bulk items unavailable from Mintons.

    We could bring wholemeal spelt too if you like. We could do it for just the cost of the grain since it’s a special occasion.

    Big-G is a bit confused by wordpress, so posing as guest, till I sort myself out, I’ll say this..

    One of my friends grows the hottest chilli in the world, Naga if anyone wants.. If anyone wants Marmite bread, then best to get a couple of the 600gr catering tubs, or I can get them……about £4.50 each

  5. Emily says:

    Hi Mick- sorry, been out of town, is it too late to request unsweetened Dutch-process cocoa for chocolate bread? Is that something that can be had from your regular supermarket? If it’s something I should bring myself that’s fine.

    Emily

  6. bethesdabakers says:

    “been out of town”? That’s a very low-key way of describing a honeymoon!

    I don’t even know what Dutch-process cocoa is so to be on the safe side I should bring some yourself. Londis does Green & Black cocoa if that’s any use.

    I shall stock up on some of Aldi’s finest 85% choc in the next couple of days.

    Look forward to meeting you.

    Mick
