A little bit about Jessica
Hi, my name is Jessica Mooney. In 2003 I moved away to Australia from Leamington Spa to start a new adventure with my now husband, Paul. After a number of years living in Melbourne, Paul and I came back home to Leamington to get married. We now have two little boys called Louis who is 6 and Sam who is 3. Bread For Life was born out of a simple need and craving for a good wholesome strong but natural loaf of bread. I am the baker and the founder of Bread For Life.
On our travels we'd eaten lots of breads. Melbourne in particular has a great café culture, and bread comes with that. Sourdoughs were particularly popular over there and as a brit abroad I'd never tasted bread like it! I think that's where my inspiration came from.
With the local UK supermarkets only supplying soggy, bland, additive rich bread, I saw this as an opportunity to satisfy my craving and then to share my love of all things bread with my local community.
So I taught myself how to make bread using traditional methods.....and here we are!
