A new bakery with a focus on traditional Danish recipes has opened in Cardiff.

Run by Danish-born Betina Skovbro, Brød opened on 4 November and sells a range breads and pastries as well as offering café facilities.

Baking duties are mostly in the hands of Simon Stokholm, who moved from his home in north Denmark to take up the position, though Skovbro helps out when she is able. Meanwhile, ex-Starbucks supervisor Ben Davies has been placed in charge of coffee after being recommended to Skovbro by a friend.

Skovbro said she was motivated to open the bakery partly because her grandfather was a baker, primarily making bread but also sweet bakes, and also because she wanted to bring authentic Danish baking to the area.

She said of the opening: “It has been very good. We’ve been absolutely overwhelmed with the interest we’ve had.”
