Alex is an incredible baker, who will stop at nothing to make sure his bread is absolute perfection.
Angela Hartnett, Murano

It doesn’t get any better than Alex’s bread, it’s the best on the planet. We have a great working relationship; on a number of occasions Alex has created bespoke products to suit the things we desire for our changing menus.
Stephen Terry, The Hardwick

Alex produces dream a hundred per cent spelt artisan bread, including cakes, sourdough, flatbreads, brioches, cinnamon buns… heaven!
Roger Saul, Sharpham Park

Alex’s bakery was deliciously warm and scented from the morning’s baking, and from the beery aroma of the rye starter culture, which bubbled and popped like a tiny Vesuvius. Sitting on the long, oiled oak work table were shiny
conker-headed brioches and several little loaves of stollen.

Alex works far too many hours, but at least we never run out of bread.

Hi, Alex, Just to thank you for this extraordinary bread. Brought a loaf back to London, and just ate it slice by slice with butter all day. It has so much interesting taste and vitality, and goodness. One feels a connection with you, its maker, and its place of origin. Bread for me is one of life’s essential foods. I am indebted to you for all your hard work! Many thanks. Stephen

Alex’s parmesan bread sticks are terrifyingly addictive, the crack cocaine of the bakery. You’ve been warned.

My ne plus ultra of bread… it’s perfect
David Parker

Alex made bread that produced total silence around a table of judges.
