“I have ordered several times from your firm and I have been so pleased to find your despatch so prompt and the price so reasonable. I use a Panasonic bread maker and add about 5oz of mixed dried fruit to the Malty bread mix. It is very much admired by our guests. We run a small hotel www.lindethfell.co.uk Have a look. We would love to see you or your colleagues if you ever get this far up North! Kind regards and thanks for such good and reliable service,"Diana Kennedy
One for the boys, surely. Wright's Malty bread mix with a crunchy texture of malted wheat flakes and a taint of stout to complement. Get them guessing what bread they are eating with their sandwiches on St. Patrick's Night! Super with smoked salmon and cheeses.
