Loaf were due to appear at today’s 24 Carrots farmers market in Birmingham’s Jewellery Quarter, serving hot sourdough pizza’s from the mobile wood-fired oven. All was going well, up at 5am to hand-knead 20kg of dough, an hour of cheese grating last night, lots of kindling chopped and ready, oven looking fine. Having borrowed a van from local organic butcher Steve Rossiter, we hooked up the trailer and headed to the JQ at 8am. I drove really carefully, but sadly when we arrived at the market we were greeted by this sorry scene:
After a few moments of confusion, Jane and I had a cup of tea and came up with an idea to turn disaster into adventure…
So for one night only, Loaf will be hosting the first ever* pop-up pizza takeaway restaurant!
Here’s the deal:
Local artisan baker Tom Baker is firing up his wood-fired oven for one night only (Saturday 16th Oct) to offer amazing hot sourdough pizza’s to takeaway tonight.

* It might not be the first-ever, but we’ve certainly never heard of one. We’re making history people… 🙂
