Planet Leicester Bakers
Planet Leicester Bakers is the creation of Michelle Stratford – a baker who jumps on her ‘bread bike’ every fortnight to bring loaves to her home city. Every other Friday she bakes and then pedals her bread into St Martin’s Square in Leicester city centre. Customers can sign up to a mailing list to get an alert 24 hours before the bake, which lets them know what will be on offer.
Past bread bike treats include plaited challah bread, Swedish saffron buns, honey & sesame plait and ‘Lovers’ Window’ buns.
Michelle’s bread bike has featured in the local newspaper and on BBC Radio Leicester, and people love the ‘green’ nature of her idea, as well as her delicious bread. She also offers private training for home bread-bakers, public speaking and team building. To find out more, visit the Planet Leicester Bakers website.
