The sixth of twelve people, men and women, all of whom in their various ways work with food and all of whom are passionate about what they do. It’s a truism to say there has been a revolution in food – but these twelve have all taken fresh approaches: all have a sense of rootedness and authenticity. It was a great pleasure meeting all of them: from the lovely Jeremy Lee working in a down-to-earth way at his grand and history-imbued Quo Vadis to the three artisan producers at Spa Terminus: extraordinary people working enormously hard at what they love. Our great thanks to them all.
Since 2011, the Little Bread Pedlar has been making and delivering artisan croissants, breads and pastries to cafés, delis and shops across London. Ex-St. John Bread & Wine chef Nichola Gensler founded the bakery with her partner Martin Hardiman. Nichola bakes and Martin bikes the produce across London with his team early every morning. The Little Bread Pedlar is based at Spa Terminus in Bermondsey, where they sell their wares directly to the public on Saturday mornings. They also run a café and bicycle repair shop nearby.
Nichola and Martin are extraordinary and dedicated: seven days a week working from early until late. The reward is our's - in the really outstanding quality of what they produce.
