The Flat Baker started life as a small team of baking enthusiasts who were passionate about good food and experimental techniques in the kitchen.
Set up by self-taught baker Matt and his partner Debs in their Ancoats flat, the artisan bakery has grown from a tiny kitchen to a wholesale supplier in the short time it has existed, and, now, they’re getting ready to open their very own customer facing space in Ancoats!
The Flat Baker’s approach to baking is experimental, mixing mouth-watering flavours from Brazil with the classics of traditional baking, bringing customers a unique and delicious range of flavours!
Its brand-new site will sit on Ancoats’ Radium Street and will in no doubt have all of its best bakes in tow, as bringing Brazilian culture to the city is part of The Flat Bakers’ mission.
You can expect everything from Brazilian loaded sandwiches, alongside homemade Pastel De Natas, Cruffins, Boozy Brioche, Croissants, Sourdough Bread and the Flat Baker’s own range of juices, smoothies and coffee selections.
The Flat Baker also currently supplies a number of the city’s independent cafes with bakes and goodies, including King Street’s Factory Coffee. Up until now these were the only places you were able to sample The Flat Baker’s treats, but its new Ancoats baking studio will be an accessible space for all to stop off for some lunch.
Matt and Debs are also the organisers behind the ‘Brazilian Festa Junina Festival’, which coincides with the traditional celebration held in the country. In previous years, The Flat Baker has been joined by other small Brazilian businesses showcasing the best of their multicultural country.
The Flat Baker’s baking studio is set to open on Saturday 2nd July. You can follow its Instagram page below for more information about the new venture.
