Small Food Bakery is a quirky local bakery specialising in small-batch, high quality handmade breads and pastries. The bakery is located in a rather grand Victorian redbrick former primary school on Seely Road in Nottingham. Now known as Primary Studios, the old school is a base for a number of creative and artist spaces.
Small Food Bakery operates from the old school kitchens and, at the time of writing, is open to the public on Fridays 10am-6.30pm and Saturdays 9am-2pm. It also runs sourdough-making workshops under the leadership of head baker, Kimberley Bell.
All of Small Food Bakery’s products are naturally leavened, slowly fermented for up to 30 hours. This ancient method of bread-making ensures a rich flavour and enhanced nutrition. The bakery sells a range of sourdough loaves, including the magnificent ‘Radford Wild’ (and, when we visited, the ‘EY Up’ wheat and rye sourdough), plus croissants, sausage rolls and other pastries, and uses seasonal and local ingredients wherever possible. Also on offer are pizzas, crispbreads and cakes. All products are additive-free and low in salt.
The bakery contains a small number of seats so you can sit in and enjoy a coffee and a slice of sourdough toast with local honey, and watch the hustle and bustle of the kitchen.
