Baking in Sweden

In preparation for opening our new café and deli this autumn we are in Sweden this week baking with amazing artisan bakery Järna Stenugnsbageri south of Stockholm.

The word “passionate” tends to be over used but for this small team of bakers it really rings true. This is Alex, the rather magnificently heirsuit German who kicks off the morning bake-off at 5am, moving Levain, 100% rye, Ciabatta, seeded Spelt, cinnamon and cardamom buns from their cool night time cupboards into the massive stone baking oven.
