“People are so worried about what they eat between Christmas and the New Year, but they really should be worried about what they eat between the New Year and Christmas”  Source: Unknown

The good news for all Friends of Rex Bakery is that our Hand-Made artisan baked goods are lovingly crafted with only the best ingredients, organic wherever possible and nothing nasty added so plenty gained.  This means you can make your New Year diet Rex-based, as it will offer you the best that Nature & your local Artisan baker can provide.  Besides, what daily bread could be better for you than loaves slowly & carefully developed by the Rex Baker?

That said, many of you talk of cutting back this January and so are we.  We do plan to scale down our bake list to breads & sausage rolls only until our shop opens.

 New Year, New push to open the shop

Although the Rex Baker loves creating new baked delights, and is going to really miss making some of the Rex favourites such as Raspberry Benedict Bars, Almond Croissants, Pain au Raisin…. it’s an important step for the shop opening plans. Rex Artisan Bakery This reduced bake list will enable the Rex Baker to focus on getting the business ready to launch, instead of being consumed in the bakery for days prior to the weekly bake preparing & hand-making the whole Rex pop-up range.

We ask you to continue to confirm your Saturday orders to rexbakery@btinternet.com by Thursday evening at 9pm, and emails reminders will continue to come out to all Friends signed up to receive them.  This helps the Rex Baker still to plan right quantities and to hand-prepare the Sourdough starter, the pastry, the mixes and so on.  All good things take time…

The collection point will be outside the shop at 4 Chenies Parade on Saturday mornings through January, from 9 – 12, but if those times don’t work and you need to collect from our Little Chalfont home do let us know.  Good news for all those that miss that Thursday deadline – we still want to carry some extra loaves at the Pop up Point!!

We hope that this plan will mean the shop can open as early as possible in  2014 – so definitely Happy New Year from Rex Artisan Bakery to all of you 🙂
