We are a gluten free bakery producing 100% gluten free bread.
Tanya, the founder is coeliac and originally trained as a chef in 2014, after a career in accountancy.
In 2015 she set up a small home restaurant Knife & Fork that was 100% gluten free. Knife & Fork went on to win National Free From Eating Out Awards for three years including Crème de la Crème awards for two years. Knife & Fork was also awarded entries in the Waitrose Good Food Guide in 2018 & 2019.
Initially Tanya did not serve bread at Knife & Fork. Her personal philosophy towards food is that she will not eat something just because it is gluten free. At that time she had not developed a recipe for gluten free bread that she felt was good enough to serve to her diners so bread was off the menu.
However, over the past four years she has persevered and is now making bread that she is very proud of and Knife & Fork bakery is the result.
We believe that anyone who follows a gluten free diet, whether coeliac or not, should be able to enjoy good quality bread made traditionally with no added processed gums, additives or chemicals. We use only natural ingredients that are, where possible, organic, local & sometimes even home grown.
All of our products are gluten free & nutritionally dense. They are made with certified gluten free flour, which is also organic where available.
Having received such a great response and demand for our breads in the local area our loaves are available across mainland UK via Parcelforce delivery.
"Having three coeliacs in our family we completely understand how tricky it can be to actually find tasty gluten free bread. That’s actually how this whole bakery adventure started; we couldn’t find any gluten free bread that we really liked, so we started baking it for ourselves!"
