slaithwaite & the handmade bakery.

Saturday, 22 June 2013

nick and i spent a sunny sunday afternoon strolling around the little village of slaithwaite in west yorkshire.  it is only 40 minutes drive away from us across some of the most beautiful english countryside i have ever seen.

slaithwaite itself is a quaint little village with lots of independent shops and cafés.  we were feeling brave and decided to walk along the canal to the next village along.  it was only three miles, and sweltering, and in sandals.  still, the views along the way made it all worthwhile.

we stopped off for lunch in an amazing little spot: the handmade bakery.  guess what they do.  it is a co-operative and run as a not-for-profit community led artisan bakery complete with its very own allotment right out front. find out more about them here.

i had the very delicious baba ganoush which came with a lovely lentil and beetroot salad and sourdough bread.  followed by the polish cheesecake which was just amazing.  definitely worth a visit if you're ever around that neck of the woods.
