Beginner’s Sourdough Kit


Description: A bundle of helpful items to encourage the sourdough fan in your life to get making their own. Includes a 500g banneton (supports the dough while proving), a packet of dried Sourdough Starter, two dough scrapers, a lame (for slashing the loaf) and a recipe card (£1 donated to SoupFest for each purchase).

‘Do Sourdough’ by Andrew Whitley


A really practical little book for the wannabe Sourdough baker. Includes how to make your sourdough starter from scratch, and how to fit the demands of sourdough making into your busy working schedule.

‘Slow Dough, Real Bread’


A collection of delicious recipes from the Real Bread Campaign, some yeasted, some sourdough, but all taking a slow approach in order to maximise flavour, digestibility and nutrition.

‘Bread Matters’ by Andrew Whitley


Written by the founder of the Real Bread Campaign, here at Companions we consider this our ‘Bread Bible’. A really comprehensive fount of knowledge regarding all things bready, along with plenty of recipes for loaves, pastries and others.

A packet of dried Sourdough Starter


A stocking filler for your favourite ‘breadhead’ – conveniently dried for ease of postage or transport. Add flour and water to the contents of this little packet and – apparently – you’re a baker!

A sourdough loaf

£1.75 – £3.20

Companions’ bread freezes very well so if you order a loaf for Christmas Eve (we’re open till 2pm for collection) you can safely present your family member or friend with a Christmas loaf – they’ll have room in their freezer now the turkey and mince pies have come out!



The Christmas classic with the home-made flavour. No additives and alcohol-free. Please order early for collection a few days before you want to eat it – the flavour develops after baking. Nicely presented wrapped in baking parchment and tied with red ribbon.
