At the time of ordering payment can be made by debit or credit card or PayPal. Please note PayPal can only be used for Once Only orders. All goods remain the property of Artisan Bread Ltd until full payment of the invoice price has been received.
Due to the nature of freshly baking to order an item may not be available and a substitute may be sent to complete an order. A member of staff will endeavour to contact you to explain the situation and, where necessary, discuss the possible alternatives. In the absence of instructions to the contrary, an appropriate substitute will be made, providing we are confident that it is of either equal or greater value as the item ordered. Alternatively, we will issue a credit.
Prices are subject to change without notice and all goods are sold subject to availability. Whilst we take the utmost care to ensure the product descriptions, pictures, information and prices are accurate we do not accept liability for any inaccuracies, errors or omissions. Colour and texture may vary slightly from those shown on the website due to natural variations or the limitations of internet technology.
Please celebrate that this is artisan food – slowly made by artisans from the best nature provides. Think of it like single estate wine or single estate olive oil – each batch will be slightly different and celebrated for its difference!
Our bread won’t be the same every time you taste it - celebrate the artisan nature!
Not many bakers go to as much trouble as we do – we mill our flour fresh each day and use macro ingredients that you would otherwise find in food supplements, like calcium and seaweed! We don’t use enzymes to make bread last unnaturally long and we don’t use gums or additives. Each batch of grains will be slightly different. This is not mass produced food made from blended ingredients - this is real food!
If your bread has gone stale you can use it in cooking – it makes a great binder or even bread dumplings – the possibility is endless. You can steam it without it falling apart.
However – if it goes mouldy - throw it away. Just cutting off the mouldy bit will not do as moulds grow long tentacles and all parts of the bread may be affected – not just the mould you can see on the surface.
But take a close look – sometimes people mistake a little clump of calcium and seaweed as mould. We do our best to mix this in well but sometimes a bit gets trapped in an air bubble in the dough and it forms a small whitish blob. To test wipe over it with your finger - moulds will flatten and become almost invisible whereas the seaweed/calcium will remain intact.
