The much loved Phoenix Bakery in Weymouth is created by world class baker Aidan Chapman. This Artisan Bakery and Cafe makes, bakes and serves award winning, fresh and organic hand-made breads, pastries, cakes and savouries. Employing only the sourdough method of baking with wild yeast from the air and using the best organic flour, the Phoenix produce has both low salt and yeast content. Many of the used ingredients are sourced locally such as fruit and veg from Pear Tree Cottage in Weymouth, milk and butter from Craig's Farm Dairy and organic flour from Cann Mills in Shaftesbury. All set in the wonderful, British Seaside Town that is Weymouth.
Aidan has been baking for 28 years and his career includes 5 years as Head Baker at The Celtic Bakery in London. Moving to Dorset in 2005 he set up Leaker’s Bakery in Bridport and The Town Mill in Lyme Regis. He has appeared on the River Cottage television series a number of times and teaches the bread courses both at the Phoenix and at River Cottage headquarters.
