Welbeck Bakehouse hires new head baker

The Welbeck Bakehouse of north Nottinghamshire has hired a new head baker to build on recent successes.

The Great Food Club-recommended bakery, located on the Welbeck Estate, received a ‘Highly Commended’ in Britain’s Best Loaf 2017 (Sourdough category) and has been nominated for Best Artisan Business in North Notts Business Awards 2018. Peter Friese from Hanover in Germany is the new head baker and he can’t wait to get stuck into baking for one of Britain’s best artisan producers.

Welbeck Bakehouse is a wholesale business and covers the Midlands area, delivering to businesses large and small seven days a week.

General manager Emma Hall told Great Food Club that to meet a surge in demand for sourdough cheese toasties from tearooms and cafes, the Welbeck team has recently created a new product: the sourdough tin loaf.
