    Use your loaf!

    Use your loaf!

    Is there anyone left who didn’t have a go at making bread of some kind over lockdown?!

    Many of us have come away simply appreciating the skills of bakers more, but there are also those of us who now can’t resist the smell of a fresh loaf in the oven and the joy of knowing we have baked it ourselves.

    As the UK is gradually emerging from lockdown once more and eating outdoors is becoming the new fine dining, putting together a meal can require a bit more planning and a bit more carrying!

    Our bread wraps are perfect for keeping your freshly baked loaf safe, carrying a family load of sandwiches or wrapping round a bowl of something delicious to keep bugs and picky fingers out. With a wipeable, food safe lining and velcro fastening they are super easy to use and keep clean.

    We know the bread makers amongst you will have your favourite recipes, but we’ve found this selection which has a variety of options…

    Poppy’s bread wrap is often used to protect her sharing bowl of potato salad. The recipe is so secret we couldn’t get it out of her, but here are a few alternatives that look pretty delicious...

    Meet the Padstow shop team

    We’ve finally got around to introducing our lovely Padstow shop team, hurray! Turns out they’re all a little camera shy, so we had to use bribery! (Cake, who mentioned cake?! Karen the shop manager at Poppy Treffry, Padstow So first of all... Karen, our shop manager describes herself as creative, fun-loving and outdoorsy. She says the best thing about working in the Poppy Treffry shop in Padstow is being surrounded by cheerful and bright textile products and the fabulous location, she even plans to cycle in to work from Wadebridge! When she’s not working in the shop, she can be found in her own sewing workshop making lampshades, spending time exploring the coast, and sitting in dark rooms at the dead of night! (That last one is because she enjoys taking part in paranormal investigations!) Karen drinks her tea the way of the builders, with skimmed milk, no sugar. stanya from the Poppy Treffry shop in padstow Next up, Stanya, our shop assistant, who describes herself as creative, kind and cheeky! She loves all the beautiful products, friendly customers with similar interests and the view - did we mention the view?! In her spare time, she enjoys making candles (which we sell in the Poppy Treffry shops), walking and taking photographs of the beautiful Cornish scenery, visiting local cafes and sampling their cakes (well someone has to keep the Cornish economy alive!) Stanya takes her tea with milk, one sugar or sometimes with lemon and honey. Sinead from the Poppy Treffry shop in Padstow And last, but of course by no means least, Sinead, our other lovely shop assistant, who describes herself in three words as creative, funny and a mummy. She loves being in a creative, colourful environment at Poppy Treffry and getting to share her PT knowledge with the lovely customers, oh and she says the view isn’t bad either! When she’s not in the shop, she can be found at home running around after her two boys and crazy Beagle. If she gets two minutes to herself, she likes to get her canvas out and paint. Sinead can also be found sampling lots of delicious foods with her Hubby, who's a Chef, as they are real foodies. If she’s not doing any of that, Sinead can be found snuggled on the sofa reading a good book (and eating cake, shhhh!) Sinead never drinks tea, it’s Coffeeeeee all day, everyday. Strong, milky, one sugar please. The view from the Poppy Treffry shop in padstow We felt it would be rude to leave without sharing that infamous view with you, now you can understand, we're sure, quite why all the girls mentioned it! Hopefully you can come and visit us soon and check out that view for yourself. We're not sharing the cake though, sorry! Find out more about our Padstow shop here.
