Making bread not war

vetsartisanCome on…just look at that bread. With it’s crisp cheesy topping and soft, soft , springy and fresh white middle that’s surely enough to push any January dieter off the wagon.

And yes it was as good as it looks. This was the cheese bread from the The Veterans’ Artisan Bakery at Catterick Garrison, which opened last year after winning the support of celebrity chef Marco Pierre White .

It’s set up as a social enterprise and provides accredited qualifications to help those suffering from post-traumatic stress or who are vulnerable to homelessness with new skills and insight into running a business.

I hadn’t sampled their products before but now a local shop (Jefferson’s) stocks some lines, and can order many others from the handy catalogue of breads, I’ll certainly be finding out more about what soldiers can do when they lay down their arms and get in the kitchen.
