Proper bread from Hitchin Bakehouse

Following a link that a friend posted on Facebook, I did some goggling and discovered the Hitchin Bakehouse.  The bakehouse is an artistan bakery in the next town.  Having read a bit about sourdough breads on other blogs I decided to order some to try.

Knowing that we were going to be at home over the weekend and with the hot weather forecast, it was likely to be outside dining, I plumped for the Rosemary and Sea Salt Focaccia and the Hitchin Sourdough.  They only bake to order at the moment, so a text arrives to advise your bread is ready and off I went to Hitchin.  

As you enter the house to collect, the waft of freshly cooked bread hits you and immediately you want to try some!  

The sourdough lasted long enough for me to get home - and soon become brunch with some scrambled eggs.  The focaccia we saved until tea time and it was quickly devoured in two sandwiches with wiltshire ham and homemade chutney and sun dried tomatoes (and the obligatory glass of red wine!)

The bread had flavour and texture (unlike the pappy stuff sold in the supermarkets).  We WILL be ordering some more -
