This is a fantastic new website with a map tool to help you find ‘real bread’ and locally produced flour near you.  Just pop in your postcode and it shows you places nearby that sell high quality bread and local flour. 

Here’s my map (click on it for a larger version):

There’s some places I’ve not heard of before that I’d like to go, and there’s some places that I knew baked their own bread, but I didn’t know how good they were at sourcing local ingredients.  This website gives you a series of ‘ticks’ for most places next to each of their loaves of bread.

The Smokehouse near us looks like this (click on it for a larger version)…

I had a lovely day at the Making Local Food Work conference in Manchester on Wednesday.  I met some great people, heard from some inspirational speakers (in particular Charlotte Hollins from Fordhall Farm, Kath Dalmeny from Growing Communities/Sustain and Vicki Hird a food campaigner), ate a delicious lunch and came away with what I hope is a better understanding of where my local ‘Low Carbon’ group should head on food related matters.

Making Local Food Work also launched their new report called ‘Local food and climate change – the role of community food enterprises’ – you can download a copy from their website here.

I also won something!  Which doesn’t seem to happen very often but when it does is a lovely surprise.  I won a copy of a new book called ‘Stuffed – positive action to prevent a global food crisis’ from EcoCentric.  I hadn’t read anything about the book, but it turned up in the post yesterday and have had my nose buried in it. 

It is a great read with some fantastic (and shocking) facts and well worth getting yourself a copy if you’re interested in food.  You can get yourself a copy from the online shop at the Soil Association’s website.  Get reading!
