  • A competition which aimed to find the best loaf of bread in the capital has crowned a loaf from East Dulwich as the winner
London’s Best Loaf Announced

Peckham Rye, baked by Brick House, was named The Londoner’s Loaf in a contest organised by the Real Bread Campaign and Jellied Eel magazine.

The rye and wheat sourdough loaf was described as “pretty much perfect” by judges, who had to blind-taste the ten additive-free breads voted for by Londoners.

Chris Young, coordinator for the Real Bread Campaign, said, “London is lucky to have seen real bread boom in recent years. More and more people with a real passion for good, honest food have said enough of pappy factory loaves and begun making delicious real bread with nothing to hide available to fellow Londoners from high street bakeries and even their own kitchens.”

1,172 people voted in the contest, which was open to all London bakeries. Brick House only bakes around 400 loaves a week for local shops, cafés and its weekly stall at Herne Hill Market.
