FLOUR, WATER, SALT, MACCLESFIE­LD

Cheshire Life - - Food & Drink Awards - Sponsored by Morn­flake

Bril­liant baker Paul Robin­shaw founded this Macclesfie­ld in­sti­tu­tion in 2009 – and peo­ple have been fol­low­ing the smell of freshly baked bread to his door ever since. They’ve not al­ways been based in Mar­ket Place, a for­mer amuse­ment ar­cade. Paul has baked bread ev­ery­where from a cel­lar and a barn to a scout hut and ware­house.

He ditched a ca­reer in IT af­ter at­tend­ing a bread mak­ing course and set about learn­ing all he could about ar­ti­san bread. The busi­ness started on his kitchen ta­ble but now his mod­ern Macclesfie­ld bak­ery at­tracts queues along the pave­ment. If you can’t get it there they sup­ply other food havens like Mackie Mayor in Manchester’s North­ern Quar­ter. His Copen­hagen bread – a deliciousl­y sweet loaf – earned him a gold at the World Bread Awards.

‘Bread changed my life and I couldn’t be any hap­pier,’ said Paul. ‘I’m so de­lighted to have re­ceived this award and feel re­ally proud to be here.’
