Postcard from Umbria

In Italy we have a saying, ‘nella botte piccola c'è’ il vino buono’. At e5 the point is being proven by Oli+Sam of Natural Born Wine. Ever since I saw their stall in Victoria Park and started learning about their emphasis on small yields of natural wines, they have been supplying our shop with delicious and original Italian wines. So when the chance arose to join them in Italy and meet the producers, it was too good an opportunity to resist.

The Big Raffle - Fundraiser for Ukraine!

This Month we held a ‘Big Raffle’ at the Bakehouse to raise funds for those displaced and effected by the war in the Ukraine.
It was a lovely evening including a Ukrainian feast of Borscht, Pampuski and other filled breads which was cooked up by our brilliant chefs Beta and Mariana and of course the main event The Big Raffle!
We had lots of amazing prizes donated by local businesses and our own suppliers including wine, books, cheeses and more!

We raised a massive £3569 so Big Thanks to all who came or contributed to the evening.
