OUR MICRO STORY
In 2018, I left my job as an Early Years Teacher in Leeds for new challenges and adventures in Canada. I was very lucky to have opportunities in bakeries with exceptionally kind, skilled and inspirational people making amazing products. In these very special places, I learnt new skills, gained experience and I found what I was most passionate about...bread.
We found a new home in Hayle, Cornwall, on our return to the UK and I began working at a lovely bakery on the beach and spending some time at the Artisan School of Food doing an Advanced Bread course. Noticing a need locally to provide lovely fresh natural bread I decided to take the plunge and open my own microbakery, as I’d often imagined having an outlet in which I can contribute positively to our earth and environment and indulge my passion for the deliciousness that is slow fermented breads and treats. This is how Dodo Bakery came to be!
Why the Dodo Bird?
I love anything 'dough'!
The exotic but extinct dodo bird has Mauritian roots just like me! I’ve chosen to name my microbakery after the Dodo as it has a double meaning - my mission is both to reduce food chain impact on the planet and to create delicious tropical influenced treats. I'd like the flavours of some of my products to make people feel like they're taking a break somewhere a little more alluring.
The bakery is 100% vegan and I want to ensure everything I do looks after the planet, so hopefully by buying my bread, you'll be part of a small chain that is preventing other animals (like the good old fat dodo bird) from becoming extinct.
