BREADS 

At Let it Dough Artisan Bakery, we prepare and bake all of our breads from scratch, on a daily basis, in our premises. We do not use pre-mixes, preservatives, or additives. We only use the best quality ingredients and processes in order to bake high quality products. At Let it Dough, we believe in baking breads on a daily basis and only selling bread which has been freshly made. In order to prevent waste, we ensure that the bread we do not sale is donated to local charities. 

White Batch 

A soft white bread prepared with strong wheat flour. This bread is rich in flavour as well as in texture and consistency. It is especially good for sandwiches or for eating toasted with butter or jam. 

Wholemeal Batch 

This is a wholemeal variety of bread which is rich in fibre, freshly made and baked in our premises 

Vienna Bread 

This is a white bread with a moderate, crunchy crust. As the name suggests, this bread was first produced in Vienna, Austria in which steam was added into the baking process. As a consequence, it has a light and airy crumb. The most important feature of this bread is that it is totally fat free since no fat is added to the mix at any time. In our bakery, we bake this bread on a regular basis. 

Brummie Cottage 

A type of white bread with a distinct shape. Called the 'Brummie cottage' due to its characteristic cuts around two round loaves, one on top of the other. This bread may be difficult to find in other bakeries, but at Let it Dough you can find this on a regular basis. 

Ham Bread (Pan de Jamon) 

A traditional Venezuelan Christmas bread which can be enjoyed any time of the year. A sweet, soft dough is rolled up around savoury ham, sweet raisins, black and green olives and bacon rashers. The bread is rolled up like a log and once baked, can be sliced to display attractive spirals. Ham bread can be paired with soups and/or salads. This bread is available at Let it Dough upon request. 

Sun-dried tomato & chilli 

This is a type of savoury bread of Mediterranean origin. This is a great bread to make sandwiches, to enjoy with olives as an appetiser, or to have all on its own. 

Crusty Cobs 

A staple in British cuisine. The humble cob is given the utmost of care at Let it Dough. It can be used in a range of cuisines, and it is especially good for sandwiches or for sopping up thick soup and gravies.

History of the arepa 

The Venezuelan arepa has its origins hundreds of years ago, cooked by the various indigenous tribes across the country (Arawak, Carib, Timoto-Cuica, Cumanagoto, Karina, among others). What was initially made with fresh corn is usually made today using pre-cooked cornmeal. The arepa represents Venezuelans’ daily bread. It is eaten across the country, across all socio-economic groups, at all times of day. 
The arepa has its name from the word Erepa, the indigenous word for this corn bread. The plain arepa is a round, thick bread (very much like an English muffin). Up until the 1950’s, arepas were eaten primarily as a type of bread to accompany food or to be filled with just cheese. Today, the fillings varied greatly and there are no set rules (just like any sandwich, filling options are infinite).
