An artisan bakery from Bath is celebrating the publication of its first book. Bread Revolution was written by Duncan Glendinning, founder of the Thoughtful Bread Company, along with head baker Patrick Ryan.

The firm is marking its third birthday next week and Glendinning said the book was a compilation of observations from its shop.

An advocate of the Real Bread Campaign, Glendinning said he hoped to encourage more people to take up home baking or seek out artisan bread. He added the plan for the Thoughtful Bread Company in the next few years is to "cement our reputation in Bath and Bristol and potentially further afield in the south west as one of the leading artisan bakeries".
