A man with a very appropriate surname came to the rescue of an artisan bakery in Greenwich when his business began to outgrow his premises.
“I ran my micro-bakery at home in Shooters Hill but was quickly running out of space,” said Honest Loaf's Graham Penn. “But Tim Baker, headteacher at Charlton Manor primary school, offered me the school kitchen to use at night and I haven’t looked back.”
Graham bakes for his business from 8pm to 3am every weekday at the school known for its healthy food ethos in Indus Road, Charlton
The 58-year-old said: “I was born into a baking family. My grandfather and father were bakers and I worked for the bakery when I was at school, during the summer holidays.
“I went on to work in newspapers but three years ago I got fed up reading stories about all the additives that go into bread, so I decided to make it from three very simple ingredients – organic wheat flour, salt and water.
“All the materials we use are organic. We use no additives at all and keep our salt levels down to less than one per cent, so it’s totally organic, good-for-you bread."
