Series 5: Flour and Ancient Grains with E5 Bakehouse
Listen now
Description
Ben set up E5 Bakehouse in 2011, initially baking sourdough in the pizza oven of a local restaurant in the mornings before they opened. We talk to Ben about his mission to revive the lost art of baking using traditional techniques, natural ingredients and forgotten flours. We learn about their famous sourdough and hear about how they are developing an agroforestry arable farm in Suffolk with a focus on making the transition to a diversified farming system, and localised supply chain for bread.
