THE ART IN BAKING
The Flour Pot Bakery
The Flour Pot Bakery grew out of our Founder Oli Hyde’s commitment to all things artisanal and delicious in food. Years working as a chef and then running a high-end catering business refined his understanding of the importance of quality ingredients to the fundamentals of great cookery. With that in mind, he also recognised that making the best bread is the ultimate demonstration of the craft of food preparation and production.
Throughout time and across the continents bread has not only been a source of sustenance, but an expression of culture and status. Although the basic ingredients for bread have always been flour and water, what sets great bread apart from the ordinary is the skill and care that goes into producing it. In the West, we rarely practise the art of baking bread at home now, but we are rediscovering the superior taste and bite of hand-crafted loaves by bakers who are craftsmen. The Flour Pot’s bakers are true artisans and they are teamed up with first-class chefs in our production kitchen to produce a fantastic range of handmade sweet and savoury products freshly cooked and baked every morning for Flour Pot Customers.
Flour Pot Stores
Our flagship shop is located at 40 Sydney Street, in Brighton’s City Centre North Laine district.
Here you can experience all of what The Flour Pot Bakery Shops have to offer. We are open all day seven days a week serving a delicious selection of freshly baked artisan products.
Not only can you take-out everything we make, if you have time we would love you to relax in comfort inside or out while enjoying the Flour Pot’s own signature coffee, specialist teas or a refreshing soft drink and something scrumptious to eat.
You will always be made to feel welcome and we are delighted to help if you find yourself overwhelmed by the choices on offer. All our staff undergo training and work experience in our bakery so they can talk about our products and ingredients with the same knowledge and passion as our talented chefs and bakers.
